Live like a true Russian by experiencing the Moscow Metro which spans nearly the whole of the capital with over 185 miles of track, 12 lines and 180 stations carrying over 7 million passengers daily.
It is the second most heavily used underground in the world after Tokyo’s twin subway. Opened in 1935, Moscow’s Metro is world-famous for its ornate station designs with some exquisite socialist realist art in all its monumental beauty and symbolism.
During the tour you will visit the following, most stunning, stations of the Moscow Metro: Teatralnaya, Mayakovskaya, Belorusskaya, Novoslabodskaya, Prospekt Mira, Komsomolskaya, Kurskaya, Ploschad Revolutsii. You will know about the unique history and design of each station and learn that, while travelling, you can tell your direction of travel on the circular line of the metro by the gender of the announcer: male means you’re going clockwise, whilst a female voice tells you you’re going anti-clockwise. Each line has a number, name and colour and is known to the Russians colloquially by their colours.
Involve yourself with this unique experience and become a Russian traveller for the day with this amazing 2-hour tour of the huge Moscow underground.
