History

The station opened on 1 July 1963.[1] It is a deep underground pylon station. Its surface vestibule is situated near Sennaya Square, which gives its name to the station. The Saviour Church on Sennaya Square was demolished to give way for construction of the entrance to the station.[2] Before 1992 both the square and the station were known under the name Ploshchad Mira (Peace Square).[3] In June 1999 the concrete canopy of the surface vestibule collapsed, killing seven.[4] The station is connected to the station Spasskaya of the Pravoberezhnaya Line and Sadovaya of the Frunzensko-Primorskaya Line via an underground transfer corridor.

On 3 April 2017, a suicide bomber blew himself up on a train between stations Sennaya Ploschad and Tekhnologichesky Institut, leaving 14 people dead and at least 49 people injured.[5]
