Moscow Metro Underground Small Group Tour
From US$65,98
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 provide the lowdown on their history and Soviet symbolism. ‘Blini’ pancakes and a trolleybus to see two of Moscow's Stalinist-era ‘Seven Sister’ skyscrapers make 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 Revolution Square station.

Take a tour of its vestibules, famous for their bronze statues depicting Soviet-era figures such as soldiers and peasants, 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, and 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 1954-built Aviators’ House and Ministry of Foreign Affairs towers, and learn some of the stories associated with these imposing buildings.

Your tour finishes at a nearby metro station.
