Has to be seen to be believed. The details and sculptures are amazing. The actual trains were quite good as well.

I was a bit daunted using the metro which is all mainly having its stops written and spoken in Russian. After a bit of research and reading on TA, the journey on the metro proves to be quite simple. Might be bit tricky with the language barrier but with some sign language and map it is doable. Tickets can be... More

I took the metro to go to the international airport. Many stations I saw look like the inside of a museum. This is impressive and more interesting then metro stations in most Western cities. The metro is reliable, the coaches spacious, the trains quite fast. The only problem I had was that everything was written in Cyrillic, and I was... More

The most beautiful subways in the world . Painted , decorated and magnificent . History of a nation in another story . Be sure to use it because it is the fastest transport in Moscow.

this is the best way to get anywhere in Moscow, the trains are really fast and you don't have to wait for it much time. Tickets are fixed price, and you can use the metro endlessly without going out))

As first time traveler to Moscow, I found that Metro Moscow is easy to follow. Although at first I am bit worried with the letter/spelling. I am travelling from Moscow Domodedovo to Yaroslavl. So I am using Aeroexpress, Metro Moscow and Train. Sometimes it can be confusing in some station to find where is Metro vs Subtrain vs Other. My... More

Having travelled around the world and seen a number of metros, I admit that the Moscow one is the most beautiful. It can't be compared with the ones in Paris, London, Beijing, Hong-Kong, Ir somewhere in Latin America. Each station is unique and devoted to this or that historic event. It's a real treasure (not talking about the transportation efficiency).... More

We were shown the wonderful Metro by our guide seeing the best stations and experiencing the trains, some of which seemed rather ancient! But it is an experience you should not miss - the Art is quite amazing.

Obviously the Metro is a functional thing to get you from A to B. But this is Moscow, so it does it in style. I used around 10 stations during my stay and no two looked the same - there's marble and mosaics and statues and so many beautiful things. Plus it only costs around 50p for a single journey....

To see the Moscow's subway is a must, when visiting Moscow. We took a guided tour with the same guide by Free Tour of Moscow, only that the subway tour we paid for and it was definitely worth it. Irina took us to ten different stations, each with different style and symbols and explained stories behind.
