Full description
Moscow's metro stations offer not only functionality as a public transport system but incredible cultural value. On this tour, visit the best Moscow Metro stations from the Soviet period that were designed and built from 1934–1960. Then, explore the Space Museum, also known as the Museum of Cosmonautics. After meeting your professional English-speaking guide at the meeting point, take a metro tour that lasts 30-50 minutes. Admire the work of outstanding architects and engineers, as well as the beauty of the underground system, and compare the different architectural styles with the help of your guide. Next, head to the Space Museum, which was opened on April 10, 1981, in celebration of the day when Yuri Gagarin became the first human to orbit the Earth in space 20 years before. Here, plunge into the history of Soviet and international cosmonautics, or space science. With your guide, discover many of the museum's 85,000 different items and exhibits. See the models of the first sputniks, the first space station, and a miniature spaceship, and marvel at the model of the Mir Space Station’s main module.
