Join us on our Free Metro Tour Of Moscow and see how Moscow’s metro stations have been used to artistically demonstrate the power, wealth, prosperity, and glory of the former Soviet Union.

Learn how the city’s many metro stations have become “underground museums” containing so many images, mosaics, and statues of cultural significance!

See how these stations are silent evidence of how Russian ideology has shifted over time, from when leading Soviet artists and sculptors were hired to design the stations in a Stalinist Empire style, to when the former Premier of the Soviet Union, Nikita Khrushchev, ordered a “De-Stalinization” process throughout Russia. Listen to intriguing stories of how these stations were used as bomb shelters during World War II, and how they even became makeshift hospitals, eateries, and important gathering places for members of the communist party during that time.

On our Metro Tour Of Moscow you will learn that Moscow’s metro system is so much more than just an efficient metro system – it’s one that connects passengers to various points throughout the city, as well as to decades upon decades of Russian history, making the experience historically fascinating for both tourists and locals alike.
