Széll Kálmán tér (Széll Kálmán Square) is a station on the M2 (East-West) line of the Budapest Metro. It is located under Széll Kálmán Square in Buda. At 38.4m below ground level, it is the deepest station of the Budapest Metro. Near the station, numerous bus and tram routes pass or converge, making it one of the city's major transport interchanges.

From its opening in 1973 until 2011, the station (and square) was known as Moszkva tér. The exterior of the building is strikingly similar to that of Saint Petersburg's Pionerskaya Station. Renovations of the station began in 2015, along with the surrounding square.
