Profsoyuznaya (Russian: Профсоюзная) is a station on the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. Opened in 1962.

Name[edit]

It is named after Profsoyuznaya Street.

Design[edit]

Profsoyuznaya is built to a standard column tri-span and features pillars faced (except for very thin unfinished strips at the top and bottom) with gray marble; the walls are finished with a diamond pattern made up of 4×4 squares of white ceramic tile. The architects responsible for the station were Nina Aleshina and N. Demchinsky.

The two underground vestibules are located on Profsoyuznaya Street, at its intersection with Nakhimovsky Avenue known as Josip Broz Tito Square.
