We took the Metro Palaces tour with Vladimir on our first night in St. Petersburg. This was our first visit and we can't imagine a better introduction than the two hours we spent learning about the history of the city through the design of the metro system. Vladimir is a wonderful guide - extremely knowledgeable, friendly and clearly passionate about the subject matter. We highly recommend the tour and Vladimir as a guide to this amazing city.About activity Дворцы ленинградской подземки 14 days ago
It was really fascinating tour allowing to understand much better Russian history.About activity Дворцы ленинградской подземки about 1 month ago
Great tour. In 2 hours you see the first stations built on line 1. It goes beyond the superficial architecture to explain the meaning and reasoning behind it and provide a very interesting picture of 20th century Russian history and culture, including the Revolution, the Siege of Leningrad, Soviet values, industrialization and others. Vladimir explains all this in detail, covering things that would be easily missed otherwise. You also see a couple of construction details affected by the Cold War. Fascinating.

The tour guide, Eugenia, was awesome – Her knowledge of the history, art and architecture was amazing… The tour included showing how to buy tokens and how to enter and ride the system, with visits to some amazing stations… A very worthwhile tour and one of the highlights of my trip…About activity Subway Tour 9 months ago
