Moscow Metro Underground Small-Group Tour
From US$ 64.44
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Overview
Moscow’s metro stations perfectly encapsulate Russia’s bygone Soviet era, but exploring them without a guide won’t do them justice. This small-group tour takes you to key stations to view their statues, murals, and ornamentation, and provides the lowdown on their history and Soviet symbolism. Sampling blini pancakes and riding a trolleybus to see two of Moscow's Stalinist-era “Seven Sister” skyscrapers makes your tour complete. Metro and bus fares are at your expense.
What to Expect
Greet your guide in central Moscow and descend into the metro system at the Revolution Square station.

Take a tour of its vestibules, famous for their bronze statues depicting Soviet-era figures, such as soldiers and workers, and hear about their symbolism from your guide.

Then, ride the metro (own expense) to other impressive stations. Check out mosaics, pillars, chandeliers, and murals of Soviet leaders, as you learn of the propaganda machine behind them. Listen as your guide tells personal family stories of life under the Soviet regime.

Back at street level, refuel with blini pancakes and a drink, and ride an electric trolleybus to see two of Moscow's seven Stalinist-era skyscrapers, dubbed the “Seven Sisters.” Gaze at the Aviators’ House and Ministry of Foreign Affairs towers, and learn some of the stories associated with these imposing buildings.

Your tour ends at a nearby metro station.

Fast and fun

We toured these amazing stations with Reilya. She was knowledgeable and fun. The stations were interesting and Reilya always had a story about the design and art work. I will be recommending this tour to my friends next year.
