What you can expect
Go underground on this guided tour to explore Moscow's opulent metro system. Built with marble and granite and decorated with stained-glass windows, mural paintings, mosaics and even sculptures, Moscow's metro stations provide a dramatic backdrop to everyday life in the Russian capital.
On this 3-hour tour you take in some of Moscow's most important and wonderfully decorated stations. Carrying up to 7 million passengers a day and covering almost the entire city, the Moscow Metro is one of the most extensive mass-transit systems in the world. It's famous for the many fine examples of social-realism which decorate its stations.
Visit some of the most important stations and get the chance to admire their spectacular baroque-style ceilings, marble statues, busts of Communist heroes, stained glass windows and ceiling mosaics, which depict a bright Soviet future.
