Yugo-Zapadnaya (Ю́го-За́падная), or "Southwestern," is indeed the southwestern terminus of the Sokolnicheskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. Like dozens of other Metro stations dating to the 1960s (1963, in this case), the station was built according to the standard pillar-trispan or "centipede" design. The architect was Ya.V. Tatarzhinskaya. Visually nondescript, the station's color scheme is mainly white. Yugo-Zapadnaya has four entrances, all grouped around the intersection of Prospekt Vernadskogo and Pokryshkina Street.
Yugo-Zapadnaya is one of the most heavily used stations in the system, averaging 141,000 passengers per day according to a study conducted in 1999.
