Explore the Secrets of Moscow Metro Online
April 26, 2020 14:16


During the self-isolation period, the Moscow Metro launches a series of online excursions telling about the most mysterious corners of the Moscow subway.

Metro is not only the stations and trains that run between them. Most metro facilities are not available for inspection at normal times. This is not only tunnels and complex infrastructure, which ensures uninterrupted train traffic, but also, for example, the roofs of vestibules, which are impossible to see during normal trips.

What lurks in the dark yawns of underground tunnels? What works are intended for technical substations and depots? How is the technical condition of rails and trains checked? What are the responsibilities of the various departments of subway employees? You will learn about this and much more during live online broadcasts that will be carried out by the Career Guidance Center of the Moscow Metro during the quarantine period.

You can visit guided tours of the tunnels and the Metro Museum remotely, listen to lectures on the arrangement of underground transport, and go to the closed stations and places that are never open to visitors. There are no age restrictions for online travelling so children are invited to join.

Project broadcasts will be held five times a day. You can watch them for free on the Instagram page.
