After a short introduction to the busiest metro in Europe you will see the first line of Moscow Metro, that was open in 1935. Moving on a train from station to station, we get off at the award winning platforms of 1930s. Apart from seeing the most beautiful stations and taking photos, tourists will learn the history of Russia’s first metro system, the ideology behind the design and the modern tendencies in the development of the metro.

We speak about the metro during the years of the  Second World war, when it was used as bomb shelter by thousands of Muscovites. The tour finishes at Ploshad Revolutsii station, just across the street from where the tour started.
