This is easily the most impressive underground system in the world both in terms of its architecture and efficiency. Using it for the first time makes you immediately understand why is this the most popular means of transport among locals, sometimes even among those with cars.
Stations' designs earned the system the nickname 'People's Palaces'. With many stations indeed looking more exercises in classical architecture and resembling palaces and churches more than train platforms.
On the tour you'll learn more not just about the system's architecture but also many interesting numbers and
curious facts from its modern and not-so-modern history.
And most importantly, you'll learn a lot about navigating through the system yourself and after this tour will be riding the metro on your own like a pro.
It's simple. I pick you at your hotel or any other convenient spot, we go to the tour's starting point (by metro itself if needed), do the tour, and then I drop you at any place you want or bring back to the hotel.
It's a 2-hour walking tour that includes visiting 6-7 most impressive metro stations. It starts at Revolution Square and ends at Mayakovskaya. Your metro tickets are bought separately from the price of the tour. But it's only around 100 RUB per person.
