Moscow Metro. Impression for a Lifetime

with Alexandra

Alexandra

Moscow metro is one of breathtaking experiences in our city. Why? Its first stations were built back in 1930s and the idea was to make a so-called “palace for people of USSR”. Its halls are huge, enormous, with thousands of statues and mosaics. there is so much history behind all that beauty! A triumph of communist revolution 1917, accelerated tempo of industrialization and bloody 1930s, hard years of war and celebration of victory of 1940s, a desperate hope for happy communist future –all that is reflected in the interior if Moscow metro stations! My goal is to show you the magic connection of history and present, take you to the most remarkable stations and places of interest in our underground subway system.

Our tour will include the stations on 4 most old metro-lines: red, blue, green and brown ring-line. We will visit 11 stations; take the escalator a couple of times to see places of interest in the entrance hall. I will tell you some interesting facts about the history of metro, of USSR itself, will show you how the appearance of the stations used to change with the change of ideology(and show you the old photos), tell you some rumors and legends about our subway system. After the tour you will, probably, know about the metro more, than most locals do. You will have a glimpse of Moscow from a new angle.

I was born in Moscow and have been living here for all my life. I like travelling. I’ve travelled quite a lot in Europe and Asia, I’ve studied abroad for a while. I know , that the population of I was born in Moscow and have been living here for all my life. I like travelling. I’ve travelled quite a lot in Europe and Asia, I’ve studied abroad for a while. I know , that the population of Moscow is more than the population of some European countries, that it’s a very huge and busy city, but I can still say: I love Moscow! Why? I like it, because it’s very different. It’s historical and modern, it has densely built-up areas and huge green parks, castles, monuments, boulevards, ancient city walls… There is a lot to see and to do in Moscow. I like riding a bicycle along the Moskva-river in summer time, ice-skating in wintertime, exploring former factories, which became centers of street-art and alternative culture, walking down the streets and boulevards with old nobleman's houses. Moscow never sleeps. It’s always alive, it always keeps on going. I like my city and I want you to like it too. Full profile Leave a Review
