Secrets of the Moscow Subway


Moscow subway was formerly named in honor of Lazar Kaganovich, and then received the name of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, in addition to the military, defense and related national security secrets and secrets that need to be discussed separately, since the design it is associated with a number of mystical secrets …

One of the biggest mysteries of the Moscow subway is a so-called “Subway 2” or as it is indicated in the official government documents object “D-6”.

Government underground communication system that connects all strategic assets not only in the city but also far away. Tunnels reach the underground city in Ramenki, Pushkin, Fryazino, Odintsovo, Krasnoznamensk, Vnukovo, Barvikha. All they are now in standby mode, Subway – 2 at any time is ready to accept all our leaders and provide them with a decent help in solving global issues.


The creatures of the underworld

Perhaps clergy was not so wrong. The witnesses and direct participants of all mystic accidents in the Moscow subway, metropolitan diggers, responsibly say that in the “underground” lives a myriad of creatures from the underworld. Underground extremals saw not only the spirits and ghosts but also “hohriki” with “sliders”. That’s how underground creatures are called by diggers. In addition to mystical creatures, underground is full of the devil creatures, that slightly reminiscent of representatives of terrestrial fauna. It is possible that if you step down from the platform, after a few tens of meters, you can see them in detail – a white woodlice and centipedes of especially large sizes; fleshy, that have the size of a tea saucer, spiders; rats that grew bigger eating underground food to the size of an average sheep dogs and other animals.


Among the workers of the Moscow “underground”, there are rumors that after midnight in the tunnels often appears Lineman. And this ghost has a prototype. Literally ten years ago died a person, who really worked as an underground Lineman. The man was industrious and highly positive. It is possible that after the death the subway employee can’t calm down, and continue working, regardless of his “ghostly” condition.


Ancient burial

After such evidence, it is clear why the bulk of urban myths and legends is associated with the stations of the Moscow subway. A well-known fact is the fact that many of the stations of the Moscow “underground” are located under the cemeteries. There may be, of course, ancient tombs, but the negative energy of these places usually remains forever. For example, Sokol station. Right next to it before there was a cemetery for soldiers who died in the First World War. Staff, that serves station, as well as machinists, repeat excitedly about bloody phantoms, walking on the platform in the quiet hours of the morning. Anomalous zones are also Leninka, Arbat, Borovitskaya and Alexander Garden. This assembly is once again placed under the cemetery burials, regularly updated since the 16th century.

Ghost train

There are many urban legends associated with underground facilities, including the subway. Among the urban legends about the Moscow subway, in particular, there is a legend about the ghost train, which was repeatedly seen on the Circular line. According to one version, in this train “collected all desperate souls who couldn’t find a way into the world of the living “. Train (sometimes specified – obviously of an old design), according to one version is completely empty, on the other – filled with a haggard-looking man in gray clothes, in the cabin, you can see the driver in the form of 1940-50 years. The train stops at every station, but only occasionally opens doors. You shouldn’t come into the train, or even stand near open the door as the ones who are trying to make it disappear forever. Sometimes, stories about ghost metro train have even more terrifying details.

Black driver

Another classic scary story about the subway – the legend about the Black driver. According to legend, many years ago, the driver of the emergency staff was burned, saving passengers. Then he died in a hospital, and underground leadership accused him of what had happened. Since then, his ghost walks through the tunnels, and late in the evening it can be found at the stations.

Ghosts from Aviamotornaya


The most frightening story is related, perhaps, to the accident on the escalator at the station Aviamotornaya that occurred in 1982. Then, eight people died and another 30 were injured. The cause of the accident was misconfigured emergency brakes and structural gaps of the escalator. Despite the fact that all the dead people suffocated under the weight of people falling on their bodies (there were a hundred people on the escalator at the time of the accident), in Moscow, there were rumors that people were sucked into the moving parts of the mechanism and cut into pieces. And for nearly three decades, they talk about the bloody ghosts without hands, which sometimes appear on Aviamotornaya.

A girl in a dress

Relatively recently it was the story about a student, who was followed by drunken men at the station. According to legend, the girl tried to escape from unwanted fellow travelers, jumped on the road and disappeared into the tunnel. Since then, sometimes between stations people see a thin figure in a bright dress.


Finally, on the Internet, you can find an incredible number of perfectly serious stories about how the subway passengers faced with the inhabitants of another time: the Muscovites of the fifties of the XX century, soldiers of the Civil War and the Great Patriotic War and even horseback riders.
