Teatralna (Kiev Metro)

Teatralna (Ukrainian: Театральна) is a station on the Sviatoshynsko-Brovarska Line of the Kiev Metro system. The station serves as a transfer point, via a pedestrian walkway connecting it to the Zoloti Vorota station on the Syretsko-Pecherska Line. The station was opened in 1987, between the Universytet and Khreshchatyk stations which were opened 27 years earlier. Currently there is a proposal for a second entrance to the station.

The station owes its name to the Kiev Opera Theatre located a few blocks away, and Lesya Ukrainka National Academic Theater of Russian Drama, next to the metro entrance. Prior to 1992, the station was known as Leninska (Ukrainian: Ленiнська, Russian: Ленинская, Leninskaya) from its location on Leninska Street (renamed to Khmelnytska Street), in reference to Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin.
