GMP Virtual Tour of the Russian Metro: Unique Underground Palaces of Moscow and St. Petersburg

November 30, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

$10

The Russian Metro is world-famous for its unique design and amazing beauty. It’s a kingdom of mosaics, stained glass windows and sculptures. Throughout the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, the Soviet Union’s best artists and engineers were appointed to construct each Metro station to resemble the most lavish palaces of the nation. Stations look like ballrooms thanks to the bronze chandeliers, marble floors, ornate ceiling and exquisite design.

Join Evgenia Kempinski, owner of St. Petersburg’s Jewish Tour Travel Agency and the tour guide of our trip to The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, for a tour of these amazing structures. This tour will be sans the crowds, noises and smells that the Russian Metro can sometimes host, and will show the most impressive and most interesting stations both from the artistic and historical perspective.

This program will be shown via Zoom, please register to receive the full login information.
