Go on the brown circle as many stations are amazing. And to visit several stations, it only costs 50 rubles because you never have to leave the station, so it's super economical and there's a lot to see! There aren't exactly plaques to explain what you are looking at but beautiful nonetheless. Truly a Moscow experience. Avoid rush hours.

All metro lines in Moscow offers free wifi, which can be a great help for tourists! Besides, I think once in a life time it's important to go do down the elevator which takes 2min to get to the platform since it acts also as a bomb shelter... Metro is super retro and it's quite enjoyable being on it. Since... More

There are some 5 beautifully decorated Metro stations in Moscow. Worth the visit, but I do suggest you go with a guide. The station names are impossible to read and one has to know which way to go to get to see them

What an amazing transportation system incorporating metro stops that can only be described as Museum! Firstly, download the Free Yandex Metro app and open up the Moscow Metro pages. Now you are ready to explore without getting lost! I carry a Canon camera which is just full of amazing photos but my iPhone remains in my pocket, thus not much... More

We paid for a guide-tour in Engish as we had difficulty with the lanquage and couldn't use Metro. Is amazing in what deep is builded ! Imagine that only the electrical- stairs is 70 metres hight. Some stations are really like gallery's rooms. Great art on the walls and on glass as well from history and everyday life of Russia.... More

Moscow metro is one of the oldest metro rail system in the world, predating WW2, if I'm not wrong and the most of the stations inside the central ring of the metro network at least have a history of its own to share, plus each metro station, if one observes properly has different decor altogether - none resembles the other,...

Underground Metro stations in Moscow are really amazing, a work of art!!! We visited 7 stations. Our local tour guide told us that one of the stations (can't remember which one) with the depth of 100 meters, consists of 4 levels. Beware of pickpockets!!!!!

I suspect it would be possible to spend several days exploring the stations on the Moscow Metro. Every one is a surprise, and of course you can continue as much as you like for 50 Rubles! (until you exit!) I have now discovered that it is possible for a train to change! I was on a train on line 2,... More
