Serpukhovskaya (}

}}: Серпуховска́я) is a Moscow Metro station in the Zamoskvorechye District, Central Administrative Okrug, Moscow, Russia. It is on the Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya Line. The station opened on 8 November 1983. Serpukhovskaya is 43 metres (141 feet) underground. Its name originates from the namesake street, which in turn originates from the historic town of Serpukhov.

Station design

The station features grey and white vaults. There is a three-vault span with white marble lines in the main hallway. The bottoms of the columns holding the ceiling are clad in marble carved so as to look like brick and stone. Serpukhovskaya station was designed by L.A. Novikova and T.B. Taborovskaya. The shiny textures and surfaces cause intense light reflection. A string of lights hung in the main archway; it was dismantled on 2 March 2006.

Line transfers

Serpukhovskaya offers a transfer to the Dobryninskaya station of the Koltsevaya Line.
