The new station is located outside the MKAD (Moscow Reverberate Road) between the Kievskoye highway and the village of Salaryevo. Its interiors are refurbished in the style of constructivism: The walls, ceiling, pillars and floor of the station are ramified into “squares” of different colors. The walls along the platforms are adorned with stained-glass windows.
