Since we lived in Moscow for almost 3 years taking the metro was a daily rush hour experience. If you don't have to be on the metro at rush hour(s), avoid this experience if possible. The metro can transport you almost anywhere in Moscow but make sure you know your exit. You can end up a kilometre or more from... More

Must see when in Moscow. It is not only efficient mean if getting through Moscow traffic jams. It really a masterpiece of engineering, architecture, sculpture, art..... Crowdy during the day, suggest visiting probably after 9 pm or later. Worth to see most of the stations within circle line and circle line itself.

The subway stations are amazing, They were build by the communists for the people.. Get yourself a guide who'll take you to the best and most beautiful stations.. Remember though that taking a photograph of any police or militray personnel will get your memory card wiped. Make sure to friendly motion them to step back (smile, point camera, make gestures...

Definitely take a trip on the Moscow Metro. Very safe and unbelievably beautiful. Longest escalator in Europe. Stand on the right to allow commuters to pass by quickly whilst you take in the breath-taking view as you descend into the depths! Stunning murals and statues await you at every station, and it is hard to believe that this is actually... More

Majakovsky station - on the avatar - is a miracle! There are a dozen of stations for adoration with your own taste (IMHO, Taganskaja, Chertanovskaja, Komsomolskaja, Ploshchad' Revolyutsii, ... etc) . As a transport it is efficient as water supply system. The best option to be in time at any place in Moscow. Enjoy :-))

Moscow Metro is one of the world's best tourist attractions! Does it at all look like a metro railway station? Honestly no! Who would imagine that magnificent palace-like substructures were built some hundreds of feet below the road level traversing the length and breadth of Moscow and accommodating millions of passengers to travel as they wished by sub-way trains zooming...

The Moscow Metro is unique in every sense of the word. Not only is it very affordable and a very convenient way to beat the Moscow traffic, but the architecture is breathtaking. I actually was given a map of Moscow which fortunately had a self guided tour guide of the Moscow Metro stations, It was so fun to follow this... More

Never seen a metro subway system that is functional and an architectural masterpiece. Every station is uniquely beautiful.

The Moscow Metro is the easiest and most convenient way to get around Moscow by public transport. The colour-coded maps are everywhere and very easy to follow. Trains arrive every two minutes. I would recommend familiarising yourself with the Russian alphabet to make sure you are travelling in the right direction to the station you want. Some information is also... More
