everyone visiting Moscow should visit Metro. Most of the stations are absolutely remarkable, more like palaces, each one unique. In the down town you can get down at any station, but rather visit several of them to get idea on variety of styles. My favorite one is Mayakovskaya (green line) - pick marble and mosaics on the ceiling. It got... More

Moscow metro (underground) is one of beautiful places to visit. There are old stations with monuments and even smell of history. Most of them are on Circle Line and in the centre of city. There are a lot of new stations with their own design. The difficult thing is that there are no English or any other languages' version of... More

I would agree with all appraisals reviews. Moscow metro is unique - historical monument, facinating mozaics, various architecture styles, clean and practical. Take time to explore central stations as well as some remote - Aviamotornaya, Volzhskaya. Nowerdays we have a lot of critics that metro is overcrowded and stuffy. Yes, it's true during primetime - morning hours (8-9) and evening... More

Hi, i'm from Moscow, but i decided to write my opinion in English just for our foreign guests. Metro in Moscow is a place that must to be visit. It's not only transport, but also an amazing place. Old stations were built like a palace or public museum (there are mosaic, sculptures, chandeliers and so on) and certainly without budget... More

If you live here, as I do, you get sick of the metro pretty fast, but some of the stations are lovely. I confess, however, to never having understood the point of an organized tour of these places though. Just use it to get around the center, slow down on your walks through, and you'll have seen most of the... More

You want to play a game of survival for just a couple of quid? Go for it, otherwise stay away from a crowd similar only to only japanese famous peak hours, from homeless which find shelter during cold 6 months in the subway, from criminals which use almost total absence of video surveillance. Welcome to Moscow subway and try to... More

First - it's reliable! Second - it's clean! Third - stations are beautiful! Fourth - it's cheap (approx.0,5 eurocents if you buy 11 trips). And last but not least - it's fast! It is really fast - train interval in a rush time is less than a minute! Other time - not more than 2 min. There are no traffic... More

Most of old stations are art objects. I agree that the best time to visit them is around afternoon when not so many people trying to use it. Otherwise it could be overcrowded. Select old stations inside circle line or circle line stations. I believe you'll be surprised and enjoy the view.
