Station of the 2nd (Moscow-Petrograd, Blue) line was opened on November 6, 1982 as part of the Petrogradskaya - Udelnaya section. The name and design are associated with the place of the fateful duel of A.S. Pushkin on the Black River: the station was opened in the year of the 145th anniversary of the death of the poet.

The ground pavilion was designed by architects V.G. Khilchenko, I.E. Sergeeva and N.A. Vinogradova, an underground hall created by G.N. Buldakov, V.N. Shcherbin and A.P. Volkova. At the end of the hall there is a gypsum bronze painted statue of Pushkin by sculptor M.K. Anikushin.

The location of the Chernaya Rechka station is interesting: it is located in a park near the Saltykova cottage. It is not only close to the memorial on the site of the Pushkin duel, but also to the Kamenny and Elagin Islands parks, and by bus or minibus you can go to the beaches of the Gulf of Finland and the resorts of the Karelian Isthmus.
