— Why so many stations are so beautiful;
— Why all the stations are so deep;
— Where you can feel an illusion of a real sky being 30 meters deep under the ground;
— Where you can find the bas-relief of Stalin, the only one that was left in the metro after his regime;
How subway workers leave memories about themselves in decoration of stations;
— Why there’s a feeling that some stations don’t have all necessary elements of decoration;

This tour includes:
5 stations of the red line of rich decoration and strong propaganda of Stalin’s regime -2 stations of the greenline of smart construction, that became a symbol of Saint Petersburg metro -3 stations of the purple line ofmodern design and large mosaic panels
