Akademicheskaya (Russian: Академи́ческая) is a station of the Saint Petersburg Metro. It is part of the Kirovsko-Vyborgskaya line, located between the stations « Polytechnicheskaya» and « Grazhdansky prospect«.

It opened on 31 December 1975. The station is about 64 metres (210 ft) under the ground.

The station’s name was determined by the fact that there are a number of research institutes nearby, so a number of streets in this area were named according to the broad principle — glorify science and its figures.

From July 30, 2018 to July 1, 2019, the station was closed for overhaul.
