See one of the most beautiful subways in the world!
In fact, Saint Petersburg subway doesn't need any advertising. It's not only one of the most beautiful metro systems in the world, but also the system thoughtfully constructed and well organized.
If you wonder
• Why the stations are so beautifully decorated;
• Why the metro system is so deep (no, not for bomb-shelter usage);
• Why there's a feeling that something is missing in decoration of some stations;
• How the metro decorators left memories about the metro builders;
• Where you can find the only of left bass relief of Stalin;
• Where is the most suitable escalator for reading the whole chapter of book;
• What construction which was first invented for Saint-Petersburg subway is now used all around the world;
• What's like to stay inside the third deepest station in the world
than the Subway tour is right for you!

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…

We really enjoyed taking the subway your with Evgeniya. She was very knowledgeable, patient (we had a five year old with us), and convivial. We learned many fascinating details about the metro system, and also had the opportunity to experience an under-appreciated part of St P's architecture. Well worth spending the full two hours if you can spare the time!
