What you'll do

During our walking tour around Moscow metro you'll see 12 most beautiful stations and learn how their style was changing with every decade and what stood behind it. You'll find out that these stations could've looked totally different, explore the ideas of their creators and the reasons that make them unique.
We'll trace the evolution of metro from the 30's till now and see how the dominating ideas in the course of the 20th century were reflecting in the way metro stations and pavilions looked. If available on the day of the tour, we'll take a ride on one of the designer's trains and attend a mini-concert.
Other things to note
If there are any certain stations you'd like to see or you have some other requests, let me know — this impression is entirely yours so I'm always happy to make it more unique.

My name is Lisa, I'm an art historian and a videoartist. The sphere of my professional interests is Russian and French art of the XX century, and I see my mission in giving the people new knowledge and impressions of different formats. Therefore I've worked as a teacher, journalist, author of books about artists, event, concert and trip planner... I was born in Moscow and it's my favourite city on Earth. Letting people explore it and showing them something new about Moscow is a great pleasure for me.

I had a great tour with Lisa. She is friendly and extremely knowledgeable. She shared so much information, but in an easy and approachable manner. She is trained in art history and knows her stuff, but she makes it really easy for you to understand. It was one of the highlights of my time in Moscow. Book this tour and you will not regret it.

This was our first experience booked with Airbnb. Lisa was amazing and we learnt so much about the history of Russia, the architecture and the art/design of the Moscow Metro. Along with this she had carefully selected the stations so that we could see the development of the stations throughout the period. If you are in Moscow - this is a must. A real treat to have Lisa to the two of us to go through this with us. Such great value. If you are lucky enough to be able to book Lisa - then do! Her English is excellent and she is so knowledgeable - she has an artist’s eye, an art historians understanding and lives her city!

A must see in Moscow! There's a great deal of history covered-up and carved-into the Underground Palace that is the Moscow Metro. Lisa does a fantastic job piloting you through the time sub-machine. A well paced and engaging experience of the various stages of Russia's complex history.
