- Opened November 15, 1955.
- Initially: Kirov-Vyborg line.

On the whole line, landing through the last door of the last carriage is not performed, because when the train stops, it is located outside the platform.
- West of the station Проспект ВетерановRU - Александрино (проект) and Проспект Маршала Жукова (проект).
- North of the station ПолитехническаяRU - Сосновка (проект) and Проспект Культуры (проект).
- Continuation of the line to Pulkovo Airport - the project is replaced by a railway express train.
As befits the most deserved lines, there are a lot of interesting things on the First line:
- The station ДевяткиноRU and ТЧ-4 "Северное" are located outside Petersburg - in the Leningrad Region.
- Station Гражданский проспектRU as one of two stations in Saint-Petersburg with a ground-based anti-nuclear defense complex.
- Unfinished branch at the station ПолитехническаяRU.
- Widely known in narrow circles, "erosion" with a "breakthrough" (quicksand) between stations ЛеснаяRU and Площадь МужестваRU.
- Passage under the Neva in the place of its greatest depths (24 meters, tunnel depths over 70 meters) between stations Площадь ЛенинаRU and ЧернышевскаяRU.
- The shortest stage in Saint-Petersburg (720m) between stations ВладимирскаяRU and Площадь ВосстанияRU.
- Accident with a dump in the construction of an inclined course of the station ПушкинскаяRU, and an underground monument to Pushkin in the same place.
- Panel "1917" at the station БалтийскаяRU.
- Ghost station Сад 9-го Января (не построена).
- Many legends about a secret service branch to the territory of the Kirov factory and port from the station НарвскаяRU to the station Кировский ЗаводRU.
- Glass columns at a very beautiful station АвтовоRU.
- Three metro depots at once: ТЧ-1 "Автово", ТЧ-2 "Дачное" and ТЧ-4 "Северное".
- The now defunct ground station Dachnoye (closed) (now this is the traffic police building).
- The busiest metro station in Russia - Проспект ВетерановRU, about 5.8 million people per month.
IMHO, the most beautiful station on this line - Площадь ВосстанияRU. She is the second busiest in the Saint-Petersburg metro (about 5.1 million people a month). Interestingly, in the Moscow metro the busiest station is its partner, Komsomolskaya (about 5.6 million people per month). Partner, because all the traffic on trains between Moscow and Saint-Petersburg passes through both of these stations, at the Moscow and Leningrad railway stations, respectively.
