Moscow's Subway System Now Offers One Excellent Adventure

On Friday, the Moscow subway system launched a new promotional train on its Zamoskvoretskaya Line called “Times and Epochs,” where different cars are dedicated to five different historical eras, ranging from antiquity to the 20th century. The train is named after an annual historical reenactment festival organized by the city of Moscow.

On the first day of the promotion, reenactors boarded the train in full costume, posing for photos with passengers.

The “Times and Epochs” History Fest will take place in Moscow next month, from June 1 to June 12.

The Moscow subway system regularly redecorates for different promotions. For instance, earlier this year it painted some train cars with images from famous Russian and Soviet films for a project called “Legends of Cinema.”

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
