Full description
Ride the St. Petersburg subway to see the opulent décor of stations that could be mistaken for magnificent palace halls or the lobbies of 5-star hotels. It was not an accident, as In Soviet times the subway stations were built as palaces for the people. Meet at the Millennium Bridge (Kazan Bridge), built for the 1,000th anniversary of the city of Kazan in 2005. From here, venture underground to see stations that are true works of art. They are all made of marble and richly decorated with mosaics, sculptures and stained glass to represent the prosperity and power of the Soviet Union. Behind this beauty there’s an astonishing history to be told, along with humorous anecdotes and city legends. Among the stations you will stop at, admire the bas reliefs of revolutionary events at Uprising Square, and the ornate Avtovo, with columns of glass and white marble. See bas reliefs of heavy industrialization at Kirov Plant, and go to one of the deepest subway stations in the world at Admiralty. Metro tickets are included in the tour price and your tour will end at a convenient location in the city center.

    Excellent

    My wife & I thoroughly enjoyed the underground tour, we also got some really useful & interesting historical information from our excellent guide Paulina. Well worth the price and a really nice way to get an understanding of the metro (underground) system. Would recommend this tour for couples, family’s etc., etc.

    Excellent tour, the guide went above and beyond.

    The guide was very knowledgeable and he gave us so much historical background to the metro stations that made the tour very interesting and stimulating. He also was very generous with his time and took all the time needed to answer our questions and allow us to appreciate all the sites he was showing us,
