Know More about this tour

Start your tour at Nevsky Prospect in St Petersburg, and then head below ground to explore the city’s metro stations. Whereas most European city metros are dark, gloomy and have little to write home about, the same can’t be said in St Petersburg, where stations were designed as palaces for the people.

As you walk through the underground tunnels, learn about the Soviet Union in its heyday and marvel at the artwork and architecture that epitomized the regime’s power and prosperity. Travel by metro to Ploshchad Vosstaniya at Uprising Square and admire its incredible bas-relief carvings (sculptures carved on a flat surface) of revolutionary events featuring leaders like Lenin and Stalin.

Visit Avtovo, the station that many consider an underground palace with its marble columns, gold mosaics and sculptures of soldiers carved into a palatial entranceway. See more intriguing bas-reliefs at Kirovskiy Zavod, a station named after the nearby Kirov industrial plant, and then continue to Admiralteyskaya – one of the deepest underground stations in the world at a depth of 282 feet (86 meters).

After exploring the underground artwork of St Petersburg, return to Nevsky Prospect, where your tour finishes.

  • Terrible experience, no guide showed up, and the telephone number provided as a local contact was not connected. A big disappointment.

  • Love and enjoyed this tour. Tour guide was extremely competent.

  • We had difficulty finding the meeting, which our was advised of the change, but we were not. Nonetheless, we managed to find each other and completed the tour. Anastasia was our guide and was very knowledgable and informative about the history of the stations And the significance of the art work. The pace was not too slow and tour was just the right length. A good experience.

  • this was a real disappointment. instruction on voucher was horrible or non-existent. never found the place or the guide. the location we were asked to meet were nearly 1km away from the nearest Metro station, and the street name given Nevsky Prospect was several km long. it would have been better to meet at a specific metro station, and a specific entrance point. Really disappointed. called the Moscow Free Tour no given, no one answered, only voice mail.
