Kiev Metro Guided Tour Itinerary

Meet your guide next to the Globe Column, in Kiev's Independence Square, or Maidan Nezalezhnosti, ready to start your guided tour of the Ukrainian capital's most used method of public transport and one of the first built in the former USSR. From here, you'll head underground into the Maidan metro station and climb aboard one of the city's typical bright blue railcars.

You'll then begin your route around the main stations of the Kiev metro system, learning interesting facts about their history and observing the different art and architecture found in each one. Pass through Khreschatyk station before arriving at Arsenalna, the deepest station in the world, built 346 feet, or 105.5 metres, below ground. Here, you'll resurface from the metro out into the historic Pechersk neighbourhood where you'll have time to take photos of the monuments and the famous former Arsenal Factory, from which the metro station takes its name.

Next, you'll head to Zoloti Vorota, or Golden Gate, considered to be the city's most beautiful metro station. You'll soon see why - as well as elegant lamps lighting the tunnels, the walls and ceiling arches are richly decorated with distinct mosaics. The murals depict different images representing the country's cultural heritage, including the Grand Princes of Kievan Rus', Slavic mythical creatures and ancient churches. Your guided tour of Kiev's metro will also take you to the historic Teatralna and Universytet stations, and the contemporary-style Golosiivs’ka and Hippodrome stops.

The guided tour will end at Kontraktova Ploscha station.
