Full description
Your private guide will meet you in the lobby of your hotel and you will start exploring the best of Moscow's underground. This tour’s duration is 2 hours. The metro ticket is included in the price of the tour, but your guide will still explain how and where to get tickets and what the fares are. After a short introduction to the busiest metro in Europe, you will see the first line of the Moscow Metro that was opened in 1935. Moving on a train from station to station, you will get off at the award-winning platforms of the 1930s.  Apart from seeing the most beautiful stations and taking photos, you will learn the history of Russia’s first metro system, the ideology behind the design and the modern tendencies in the development of the metro. The architectural styles will vary from art deco to neoclassicism as you switch the lines. You will also see the largest and most opulent stations of the Circle Line, decorated with mosaics, statues and stained glass.  Hear about the metro during the years of the Second World War, when it was used as a bomb shelter by thousands of Muscovites. After the tour, your guide can help you to get anywhere you prefer.

My guide, Alexander, met me at my hotel and a little early and he started a history of the Moscow metro on our walk to the nearest station. He was friendly and full of knowledge and taught me a lot about Moscow and the history of the underground and several beautiful stations in particular.
