Full description
Head beneath the streets of Moscow to discover the spectacular architecture of the Moscow Metro stations.

Meet at the famous Ploshchad Revolyutsii (Revolution Square) station and admire its red and yellow marble arches resting on low pylons of black Armenian marble. See the huge Soviet statues of an armed soldier, farmer with rooster, warrior, and more.

Continue to some of the most significant stations to find impressive mosaics, columns, and chandeliers to dazzle your eyes! The stations reveal a big part of Soviet life, with walls depicting propaganda scenes and party leaders looking down on commuters. Hear personal stories from your guide about life in the USSR.

Return to street level to refuel with some traditional bliny (pancakes). Then, take the eco-friendly electric trolleybus along the Moscow Garden Ring. Used mainly in the daytime by the Russian babushkas(grannies), the trolleybus hits peak hours in the mornings and evenings, when many locals use it to commute.

Stop at Aviator’s House, one of Stalin’s “Seven Sisters.” Then, go to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and hear what went on inside the walls! Learn curious facts about Soviet history, and see how the Russia of today compares, 25 years after the fall of the USSR.
