Moscow Metro Tour
Tour duration: 1.5 hours
Driver service: no
During the Moscow Metro Tour, your private guide will take you to the most beautiful stations. She will explain who and why needed the “underground” in the early 20th century, what theories and facts we now know about tunnels marked “Top Secret” by the USSR government, and why are some stations voiced by a female voice, and others by men’s voice. Doing the Metro Tour with a personal guide, versus going on your own, saves you time and helps you see a lot more as your guide will point out some things you would most likely miss on your own.
Moscow Metro was one of the proudest achievements of the Soviet era!
Its stations are the most decorous in the world. Many of the stations are palace-like, with marble, mosaics, stained glass, life-sized statues, and bronze fittings. Some central Metro stations became part of the architectural heritage of the capital along with Moscow Kremlin, royal estates, and mansions. On some marble walls of Moscow Metro, you can find fossils of the Jurassic period. Some stations were used as Headquarters of the USSR Ministry of Defense during WWII. In one underground station, you can see the sky above your head. Another has the longest escalator in the world (126m / 413ft).
