Finding good luck inside the Moscow Metro

One of the most revered Moscow Metro stops is the station named Plaza of the Revolution. Dedicated to the civilians of the Red Guard who fought during the 1917 revolution and the civil war that followed, 76 bronze figures represent the Red Guard. This station was built in 1938 and remains one of the most beautiful today.

There is a tradition that promises good luck if you rub the nose of the dog depicted on one of the bronze figures. Rubbing the dog’s leg means that you’ll pass a test. Hmm, what if you didn’t study?
