Guided Tour of the Moscow Metro

  • English English
  • 1.5 hours

Known as "the palace of the people", the Moscow metro stations are a veritable museum. Get to know all about them with this guided tour of the Moscow underground.

Itinerary

At 3pm the tour meets at the Kutafya​ Tower, access point to the Kremlin monuments. Since its inauguration in 1935, the Moscow Metro has been one of the most important in the world. Its stations are palaces, constructed primarily in the Soviet era for the use and enjoyment of the proletariat.

Accompanied by a professional English-speaking guide, discover the sumptuous Mayakovskaya station, where you can contemplate its aviation-themed mosaics, and futurist style decoration. You will also visit Belorusskaya, home to an impressive panelled ceiling sure to impress as you walk through the hallways.

Explore the brown circular line (line 5) and Novoslobodskaya station. Walking through the station it will seem as though you have stumbled across some kind of sacred place, decorated as it is with stained glass windows. Komsomolskaya, one of the Moscow's most beautiful metro stations, is another of the stations included in this tour. Its baroque yellow-painted ceilings will transport you back in time with its palatial atmosphere.

Learn fascinating stories about the Moscow subway system and the secrets hidden underground.
