Tour the Moscow Metro - a marvel of inner city transport

On the Moscow Metro Tour, you will learn about the history and architecture of the Metro subway system in the Russian capital city.

The two hour tour travels by Metro to visit a number of stations, each with its own character.

The Moscow metro was begun in the 1930s and its various stations reflect completely different styles and periods.

Carrying up to eight million people every day - more than New York and London put together - this system is one of the world's marvels of inner city transport.

The Moscow Metro is a rapid transit system serving a large part of Moscow, as well as the neighboring city of Krasnogorsk. With its first section opening in 1935, it was the first underground railway system in the former Soviet Union.

The system is situated almost entirely underground, though some lines (specifically, Sokolnicheskaya, Zamoskvoretskaya and Filyovskaya) cross the Moskva River, while Sokolnicheskaya Line also crosses the Yauza River by bridge. The system sometimes reaches a depth of more than 60 meters (200 feet) below ground. Fewer than 10% of the stations are at or above the surface level. There are 182 stations and 301.2 kilometers (187.2 miles) of route length.

Moscow Metro is the world's second most heavily used rapid transit system after the Tokyo's twin subway. It has 12 lines and on a normal weekday it carries over 7 million passengers. Passenger traffic is considerably lower on weekends, bringing the average daily passenger traffic during the year to 6.6 million passengers per day.

During the morning and evening rush hours, trains run roughly every 90 seconds on most lines. At other times during the day, they run about every two to three and a half minutes, and every six to ten minutes late at night. Given the frequency of service, specific timetables are not necessary nor provided to passengers.

The Moscow metro comprises 182 stations, out of which 73 are deep-level, and 88 are shallow. Of the deep stations, 52 are pylon-type, 18 are column-type and one is "single-vault" (Leningrad technology). The shallow stations comprise 63 of the pillar-type (a large portion of them following the infamous "sorokonozhka" design), 20 "single-vaults" (Kharkov technology) and three single-decked. In addition there are 11 ground-level stations and four above ground. Two of the stations exist as double halls, and two have three tracks. Five of the stations have side platforms (only one of them-subterranean). The station Vorobyovy Gory is on a bridge. Three other metro bridges exist but are covered or hidden. In addition, there are two closed stations and one that is derelict. There are also four stations reserved for future service.
