The talk is devoted on neutron stars in alternative theories of gravity: their structure, deviations from pure general relativity and astrophysical implications. Both static and rapidly rotating solutions are considered. A wide range of universal relations for neutron star and their generalization to alternative theories of gravity are also discussed. Among them are gravitational wave asteroseismology relations, the I-Love-Q relations, and relations involving the stellar compactness.
