Explore the Most Beautiful Moscow Metro Stations with the Private Guide!


During our walking tour around Moscow metro you'll see 12 most beautiful stations and learn how their style was changing with every decade and what stood behind it. You'll find out that these stations could've looked totally different, explore the ideas of their creators and the reasons that make them unique.

We'll trace the evolution of metro from the 30's till now and see how the dominating ideas in the course of the 20th century were reflecting in the way metro stations and pavilions looked. If available on the day of the tour, we'll take a ride on one of the designer's trains and attend a mini-concert.

Novoslobodskaya with its beautiful stained-glass windows, Ploschad Revolutsii and its 75 bronze statues, Mayakovskaya and its 35 mosaics and splendid baroque Komsomolskaya are not even half of the amazing stations you're going to see during the tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was a great tour with a knowledgeable and friendly guide. Lisa's expertise could have been in any of architecture, history or art, such was her command of the material. If you plan to visit the Moscow metro, take this tour! We visited 14 stations in about 2.5 hours and didn't feel rushed. Lisa knew exactly what exits/transfers/trains/platforms, etc. to take. It probably would have taken 7 hours to replicate the tour by ourselves (and without the great benefit of Lisa's knowledge).
