Today, Kyiv Metro consists of 52 stations and three lines, with a total length of about 70 km. Here, you can also find the world's deepest underground station at 105.5 meters below the surface. On your tour, you visit the most interesting and iconic metro stations: Lva Tolstogo, Maidan Nezalezhnosti, Khreschatyk, Arsenalna, Dnipro, University, Teatralna, and Golden Gate.

This is a really cool tour of the famous cold war era underground. Every station has a different feel and story whether mosaics or communist propaganda.
