A bit of research and organization will be needed prior to using the Metro, as all the signs are in Russian, you would need to pay close attention to where to get on and off, and watch out for pick pockets in the tunnels. One of the people in our group of three got her wallet taken out of her... More

Impressive metro network. Deep below the city. Old architecture well preserved and partly renovating. Some newer metro cars, but many very old and noisy. Haven't seen any English signs. Best way to move through town. Traffic is horrible

Always use metro to get around Moscow - it really works great. Yes, it is crowded, yes it can be smelly but after all - it is cheap, reliable and fast. Especially good when it is cold or raining or you need to get somewhere on time - traffic in Moscow is generally very unpredictable. Search for best metro stations... More

Takes one by surprise. The finish of marble, the statues, marble murals, cleanliness. The beauty of imperialism and modernism coming together. It's unlike any other metro in the world. And so efficient and fast. I am really impressed. Wish the station names were written up in English or using an easy alphabet.

The Metro is definitely the best way to get around Moscow. Many of the stations are works of art themselves...showcasing the architecture of the Soviet era. Very reasonable too!

Thing not to be missed if you're in Moscow is for sure its old metro. Some of the most beautiful metro stations in the world are part of it. Quite cheap sightseeing stop, you can spend hours visiting stations and enjoy in old-fashioned style of building

Staying in Tverskaya

Neighborhood Profile
Tverskaya
Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long street populated with well-known shops and brands. But it’s more than shopping that makes this place interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy European pedestrian streets Bolshaya Dmitrovka or Stoleshnikov lane are a great place to start. Locals can be found here working, eating, shopping, resting and going to the Bolshoi Theatre in the evening.
