The opulent metro system, decorated with the marble sculptures and frescos is a wonder, erected at a time when Leningrad was still healing its wounds inflicted by the Nazi siege. The tour is an exploration of the “palaces for the people” and the Soviet epoch.
The earliest stations of the Leningrad metro show an extraordinary sense of taste in interior design. Besides purely aesthetic beauty, the underground “palaces for the people” reveal different aspects of life in the Soviet Union, such as the veneration of Russian literature or the religion of the socially significant deed. Discover the values of post-war Russia deep below the ground on the metro tour.
This tour, dedicated to the post-war history of Leningrad and its citizens, takes you through the most opulent stations of the red line: from Avtovo to Ploshad Vosstaniya.
The metro tickets are included in the price. You will see the decoration of both underground halls and surface vestibules of the oldest eight stations across the red line.
