What you'll do

We will spend two hours underground, visiting the most beautiful metro stations. We will not only show you their interiors – this tour is a real crash course to the history, art, and architecture of Russia, especially of its Soviet part. During the tour we will visit 11 most famous metro stations, that were built during several decades of Soviet Union, we will see how the “message” and the style of these stations have changed through time. We will tell you about the ideology behind Moscow Metro, how these stations were serving for propaganda purposes, stories and legends about Soviet leaders and common people, who are closely related to the Metro. By the end of the tour, you will understand that the history and character of Moscow Metro, in reality, is the history and character of all our country!

Anna

We are a small community of local guides - Anya, Diana, Tanya, and Elena. While being tour guides is not our full-time job (among us are urban planner, actor and historians), we all are passionate about our city and we want you to share this feeling with us :) We’ve started making the Metro Tours about two years ago and since that time even our attitude to the metro system has changed. We cannot stop telling others about great things in the metro even when we are going somewhere with our friends or colleagues, so now people call us “Metro nerds” – and well, we’re not against it! :)
