The members of the FIFA World Cup Volunteer Program who work in the Moscow Metro and help tourists attending the event to find their way around the city often have to deal with some rather unorthodox questions posed by inquisitive visitors, according to a statement posted on the official website of the Moscow Mayor’s Office.
The most unusual questions the volunteers reportedly had to answer included “Where is Lenin sleeping?”, “Will you marry me?” and “Can I spend the night in the metro if I have unlimited 24-hour ticket?”
Also, some tourists inquiring about how to reach the Ploshchad Revolutsii (Revolution Square) metro station, the closest one to Nikolskaya Street, often referred to as ‘a station with dogs’ — likely a reference to several canine sculptures adorning the station hall.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup which kicked off in Russia on June 14 is approaching its culmination as the remaining eight teams prepare for the quarterfinals.
The final match is scheduled to take place on July 15 at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.
