The shimmering beauty of Moscow's metro stations

By PVM | World Wide ... World Wild | 26 Jul 2020


Moscow was such an amazing city, full of history, culture and wonderful landmarks and beauty spots. When you hear about Moscow, you will immediately think about the Kremlin, the Red Square, Lenin's Mausoleum, Bolshoi Theatre and military parades. All of them are incredible places to visit, however, the metro stations in Moscow are somehow special, with paintings, statues and architecture which can rival any museum in the world. All the above will have their own post soon but today I am focusing on the gloriously ornate, vaulted halls of Russia’s metro stations. 

The first project of Moscow metro was created in 1901 and the red line, Sokolnicheskaya, was opened on 15th May 1935. Before World War 2 there were two more lines opened: the Blue Line: Arbatsko–Pokrovskaya and the Green Line: Zamoskvoretskaya. The newest station is on the Red Linne, Salaryevo, opened on 15th February 2016.

If you are in Moscow, allocate few hours to visit the top station and treat your eyes with the unique beauty they have to offer. Don't book any paid tour from Tripadvisor or GetYourGuide, just follow the tour I created. I will explain clearly what line to take and when to change, in a quick and comprehensive guide, highlighting what each station has to offer. bef9c27f7742da507d306f0de8f90282635f9f822a8b6560112e5d4220f09c70.jpeg

Moscow Metro Tour

I started my trip at Komsomolskaya station (Red and Brown Line)

Continued the Brown Line Westbound at Prospekt Mira, Novoslobodskaya, and Belorusskaya 

At Belorusskaya station, switch to the Green Line and take it one stop, to Mayakovskaya.

Follow the Green Line to Teatralnaya, where you’ll switch to the Dark Blue Line for Ploschad Revolutzii.

Take the Dark Blue Line Westbound,  stopping at Arbatskaya, Kievskaya, and Park Pobeduy.

At Park Pobeduy, main attractions are Poklonnaya Hill, Triumph Arc, Victory Museum and Museum of Patriotic War
