On 5 August this year Moscow Metro jointly with Leo Tolstoy Museum opened an exhibition “Tolstoy. War and Peace. Moscow” at Vorobyovy Gory station. The exhibition is dedicated to the history of the novel that Tolstoy was writing for seven years and includes women’s outfits of the 19th century, exact reproductions of military uniforms of the Napoleonic Wars era, archival photos and manuscripts.

Vorobyovy Gory is the longest of the above-ground metro stations. The length of its platform part is 332 meters. This is almost equal to the height of the Rose Tower – the highest hotel in the world located in Dubai. The station was named after the historical district Vorobyovy Gory (Sparrow Hills). In addition, this is the first station of Moscow Metro located on the bridge over the river.
