Meet your expert guide outside the Kremlin and head underground with
your Moscow metro ticket to discover the city's underground treasures.
See the most interesting stations with extravagant Soviet-era
architecture and hear the history surrounding the metro stations from
your expert guide.

Widely praised as one of Stalin's finest architectural achievements,
Moscow's subway was created to symbolize his rising regime and a
recognized empire. Learn about his successors, who later toned down
the ornateness of the subway's architecture, and see how the different
eras are reflected in the character of each station. If you're lucky,
you may even find the secret entrance to the unconfirmed Metro-2, a
parallel underground system used by the government -- a mystery which
has neither been denied nor confirmed today.

Visit Revolution Square Station (Ploschad Revolyutsii) and admire the
72 magnificent bronze sculptures that depict the people of the former
Soviet Union, set underneath marble arches designed by the legendary
Russian architect Alexey Dushkin. Another Dushkin-created station is
Novoslobodskaya, and you'll head here next to admire its dazzling
stained-glass panels.

Discover Baroque dcor, vaulted ceilings and chandeliers at
Komsomolskaya Station, and then marvel at the grandiose and pompous
design of Kurskaya Station -- one of the first stations to be built.
Its design reflects Stalin's communist ideals and you'll note its
left-wing slogans on the walls, next to mosaics that symbolize the
'victory' of his regime over poverty and starvation.

Finally, pay a visit to Mayakovskaya, the station that's named after
Russian poet Vladmir Mayakovsky, and see why it's often considered the
most beautiful and iconic Moscow Metro station. Gaze upward at some 30
fascinating mosaics that depict Stalin's vision for a bright Soviet
future, and then admire the features of typical pre-World War II
architecture that the station embodies. Your tour ends here.
