It's the deepest metro network in the world and it's beautifully decorated... what else will you discover on this guided tour of the St Petersburg metro?
St Petersburg Metro Guided Tour
Our English-language guided tour of the St Petersburg Metro will begin at 71 Nevsky Prospekt, next to Mayakovskaya Station. Here, we'll descend into the deepest metro system in the world to discover its fascinating secrets!
The St Petersburg Metro is so much more than just a mode of public transport. Many experts in art and architecture consider the network an underground museum and you'll soon understand why as you visit the palatial stations on our tour. Admire the spectacular mosaic murals illuminated by impressive golden crystal chandeliers as your guide reveals why this elegant decor was chosen. We'll then get to see an unusual type of metro platform known as a horizontal lift... intrigued?
During our tour of the different lines of the St Petersburg Metro, we'll learn some curious legends that surround the transit system, like the existence of an underground city located between the tunnels... science fiction or state secret? You decide!
Maybe you aren't convinced by hidden metropolises, but the "ghost stations" of the metro are historically documented, so there's no denying those! After uncovering numerous fascinating facts about the metro, we'll return to our original meeting point where our tour will come to an end.
