Wow!! The metro stations are stunning and incredibly clean and easy to use. After spending a week in Moscow it is definitely the easiest and cheapest way to travel around the city. We bought a 10 trip card for about £3 each.

One of the most beautiful subways in the world. Very unique and interesting. Try to avoid rush hours.

The Metro moved millions of people under the city... Saw people running for a train, there's one every 4-5 minutes! Great way to get around Moscow!

We had a list and a map of the most stunning locations on the Metro to visit and we were not disappointed. Some of the stations are stunning and I could have easily spent double the time down there that we did (we spent a day for our self guided tour) We also used the metro to get about and... More

Any trip to Moscow would not be complete without a visit to a metro station. Unlike the London tube Moscow's offering is clean, cheap and efficient. The stations themselves are often adorned with chandeliers, paintings and statues. the tracks are far under ground so the escalators are very long and steep. Beware though that the station names are usually written... More

I would highly suggest making use of the metro. Traffic is horrible in Moscow and getting anywhere by car is very time consuming. The layout of the metro lines are very clear and even if you are unable to read the Russian writing, it is easy to count your stops. I think many of the stations also had English lettering... More

People were rude and the traffic is terrible. They want tourists but very few English speakers and little or no effort to welcome tourists.

The Moscow Metro is amazing. All the stations are eye catching-chandeliers,mosaics and sculture. The station names are on the wall opposite the door that opens. Buy an 11 trip pass at the KASSA and you can use it for more than one person. It is very safe. Go to Park Pobedy station at night to see the illuminated Victory monuments... More

First and foremost the metro is a highly efficient very clean well run transportation sytem. What sets it apart from others is the artistic nature of the stations. They all reflect individual themes and one needs to ride it and visit a few stations to truly appreciate the desig. Even on a day to day basis there is extensive use... More
