Every day we go down to the subway and we don't know anything about its history, we don't guess, why it was decided to build it, and how the public transport of the capital looked like before the metro.

We offer you to go on a trip to the stations of the first stage of construction of the Moscow subway, to get acquainted with their extraordinary history and to reveal many secrets of the Moscow metro.

During our tour we will learn how one horse transported a lot of people and learn how snowfalls stopped the life of Moscow.

Walking through the station hall, we will make sure that there is no heating and cooling of air in the subway systems, and we will see where the first train started.

We will find out why the ground was frozen during the construction of one of the subway lobbies; we will find out whether there is a secret bunker near one of the stations; establish the exact location of the General staff and air defense departments of the country during the Great Patriotic war.
