24 September Metro Orientation tour

Moscow metro system is known for its beauty, but equally it is a very practical thing 🙂 It is good to know how to use it. It’s quite easy and intuitive but still needs some practice and explanation.

I am going to help you with purchasing and topping up your Troika cards, and explain how the system functions. The tour will be organised like a game, where everybody will get a task to get us to a given metro station. So, you are going to try your metro navigation skills in a safe environment where I will tell you if we are going the wrong direction 😉

I will plan our route so that we see the most beautiful mero stations on our tour.


While it is home to some of the worlds most celebrated tourist attractions, Moscow city 129keeps one of it’s greatest treasures hidden deep underground.

The Moscow Metro was one of the USSRs most ambitious architectural projects. The metro artists and architects worked to design a structure that embodied a bright future. With reflective marble walls, high ceilings and grand chandeliers the Moscow Metro is as much a demonstration of artistic Russian virtuosity as a mass-transit masterpiece.

A journey on the Moscow Metro can be so much more than merely a trip A to B. Instead, it is a lesson in Russia’s history and architecture where one encounters Lenin, Dostoyevsky and Pushkin. The last 80 years of Russia history is unveiled before your eyes.

The stations range in design, from palatial baroque marble and granite structures to modern iron and glass, revealing the tastes, ideals, hopes, expectations and disappointments of past eras.
