Park Kultury is a station of the Moscow Metro on the Sokolnicheskaya Line. A transfer connects it with the station of the same name on the Circle Line. It is in the Khamovniki district (CAO, Moscow), named after the Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure.
The station was opened on May 15, 1935, as part of the first launch section of the Moscow Metro of 13 stations – Sokolniki – Park Kultury with a branch line Okhotny Ryad – Smolenskaya.
There are two ground vestibules.
Through the north (architects N. Ya. Kolli and S. G. Andrievsky), you can go to Ostozhenka Street, through the south (shared with the station of the same name on the Circle Line) – to Komsomolsky Prospekt and Zubovsky Boulevard (Garden Ring).
The station’s design is a shallow three-span column (laying depth – 10.5 meters). The station has two rows of 23 columns with a step of 7 meters. Behind the station are turnaround sidings used for maintenance and overnight stays of trains.
Architects G. T. Krutikov and V. S. Popov designed the hall according to the design scheme set by the project of N. A. Bykova and I. G. Taranov at the Sokolniki station – the main difference was in the decoration, which was carried out “warmer” in shade materials.
The square columns are covered with Crimean yellow-brown marble-like limestone. The floor is paved with black granite (originally asphalt). The track walls are lined with white ceramic tiles. The decoration also used white and gray marble and red metlakh tiles.
