Guided Tour of the Moscow Metro

At 11 am we'll meet in front of the legendary Bolshoi Theatre. Three minutes walk away we'll find the Teatralnaya station. Here we'll start our guided tour of the Moscow Metro.

Since its inauguration in 1935, the Moscow metro has been one of the most important in the world. Its stations are real palaces, built mainly in Soviet times for the use and enjoyment of the proletariat. We'll start by taking the green line, line 2, from Teatralnaya to Mayakovskaya station. Here we'll see its mosaics dedicated to aviation and its futuristic decoration.

Our next stop is the Belorusskaya station. Its impressive white coffered ceiling with borders will surprise us as we walk along the corridors. From here we'll take the brown circular line (line 5) to Novoslobodskaya station. As you stroll along, you'll think you're in a sacred place, as it is decorated with numerous stained-glass windows. Continuing along the circular route, we'll arrive at Komsomolskaya, one of the most beautiful stations on the Moscow metro. Its yellow-painted baroque ceilings will transport you to a palatial atmosphere.

Our last stop on the circular line will be the Kiyevskaya mosaics. At this station, we'll take the dark blue line 3 to the bronze sculptures at Ploshchad Revolyutsii. One of them, a hunter's dog, has a muzzle worn down by students. The cause? It's believed that if you put your hand over you'll have luck for your exams.

At Ploshchad Revolyutsii we leave the metro and return to the Theatre Square.
