Slavyansky Bulvar Metro Station | Moscow, Russia

Slavyansky Bulvar (Russian: Славянский бульвар, literally Slavic Boulevard) is a station on the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. Built as part of the stretch that bypasses most of the surface stretch of the Filyovskaya Line, Slavyansky Bulvar serves the residents of southwestern districts situated between the Fruzensky and Filyovsky radii. The station was opened on September 7, 2008.

Originally the bypass Park Pobedy–Kuntsevskaya was to have two stations instead of one. The first one, Minskaya was to be located on the western side of Moscow's Victory Park near the intersection of Minskaya Street and Kutuzovsky Prospekt. Whilst the second station, Slavyansky Bulvar, was to be located on the Southern side of the same Kutuzovsky prospect in the Fili-Davydkovo district, next to the Slavyansky Bouelevard (hence the name), construction of which began to a point where the future pit was ready for the tunnel boring shield. However the prioritisation of constructing a line to Strogino, and the importance of locking the bypass made the Moscow government change its original plan. The curvature of the bypass was reduced (and thus its length by 0.9 km), as was the amount of stations to save time. Originally the station Minskaya was more favoured, but under pressure of locals, the location of Minskaya would leave a provision for a station to be built in at a latter date (which could mean decades) and Slavyansky Bulvar was returned, however the change of the track path meant that the station would now be on the Northern side of the avenue, on the intersection with the Starorublyovskoye highway.

The station, designed by Architect S.Volovich, is to be a single-vault design of shallow depth. The vault would rest on horizontal walls, due to the favourable hydroisolation conditions that are present there. Internally the walls would be reveted with green Cuban marble "Verde Guatemala", topped with aluminium profile onto which lighting elements would be fixed. Grey granite "Aleksandorovsky" will cover the floor apart from platform edge which will have a darker "Gabbro". In addition the platform will have three beech benches.

The station has two underground vestibules and serves as a junction with surface urban traffic.
