Tsaritsyno (Russian: Царицыно) is a Moscow Metro station in Tsaritsyno District, Southern Administrative Okrug, Moscow. It is on the Zamoskvoretskaya Line, between Kantemirovskaya and Orekhovo stations.

Tsaritsyno opened on 30 December 1984 as part of an extension but was closed the very next day because of flooding. It reopened on 9 February 1985. The station was known as Lenino until 1990.

Design[edit]

The station was designed by architects V. Cheremin and A. Vigdorov. It has white marble pillars, walls inlaid with patterns of red, brown, grey and yellow marble and mosaics depicting the achievements of the Soviet science. A mosaic by A. Kuznetsov above the entrance stairs depicts the Moscow skyline.

Entrance[edit]

The entrance is located at the intersection of Proletarsky Avenue and Kaspiyskaya Street.
