Moscow Metro offers souvenirs dedicated to Alexander Pushkin
A wide range of souvenirs from appointment diaries and badges to thermos mugs and pens are now on sale in the Metro.

Souvenir kiosks at four Live Help desks have expanded the range of items they sell to include a limited number of souvenirs dedicated to Alexander Pushkin and the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line – one of its stations is named after the great poet.

The new souvenir line is part of a pilot project, The Metro and Russia’s Great Names, which is dedicated to outstanding personalities in the history of the country after whom some metro stations were named. The project begins with Russia’s greatest poet, Alexander Pushkin, who left his mark on both Russian and world literature.

The number of souvenirs of the new line is limited. They include appointment diaries, badges, thermos mugs, pens and many other items. All souvenirs are purple – the colour that represents the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line. Should the souvenirs sell well, the project will continue. There are plans to create similar limited souvenir lines for other metro stations named after Dostoyevsky, Kutuzov, Turgenev, Mayakovsky and other famous people.

The new souvenirs are available at kiosks at the Live Help desks in the entrance halls of four metro stations: Paveletskaya on the Zamoskvoretskaya Line, and Pushkinskaya, Ploshchad Revolyutsii and Arbatskaya on the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line. Working hours: every day from 8.30 am until 7.30 pm.
