The metro stations in Moscow are amazing. Some of them look more like a church than a metro stop. With the metro system in Moscow you buy one ticket for 50 Rubel and as long you don't leave a station you can take another metro and see other stops. A must have seen and very cheap as you just need... More

Unbelievably clean. Statues, murals, paintings adorn the walls and floor of the subway. It is hard to believe that it is used on a daily basis by so many and kept so neat and clean. Our subways pale in comparison.

Fantastic metro system in Moscow for getting around city. Can be very confusing early on with language barrier if you don't speak Russian, so would recommend you research what stations you need to go from your area before hand. Services are very reliable and stations are well maintained after a few days of using metro felt very safe doing so.

Crazy but travelling on the Moscow Metro is a must! Not just for getting from A to B but not to miss the outstanding beauty and detail in so many of the stations!! If you have time, get on and off at the stations on your route, you will not be disappointed!! Thousands of people use the Metro every day... More

You will find yourself getting excited by what the next station will look like while journeying between them on the Moscow Subway. If I am not mistaken it has to be the cheapest subway system in the world with stations on every corner of Moscow Central & they are most definitely the grandest subway stations & something to be proud...

You should obviously visit the most beautiful stations, they impress so much (Mayakovskaya, Komsomolskaya, Arbatskaya, Kievskaya, etc)! But don't visit it at rush-hours or you'll be not just impressed, the number of passengers will kill you! The best time to visit is the late hours - time before closing!

To my opinion this is by far the most interesting attraction in Moscow. The system is amazing as the trains are extremely frequent (every 30 secs. - I measured ...!), the stations are unbelievably clean, including the rails themselves (in NYC, this area is the rats country...), and very safe. But the main attraction is the design which is unbelievable... More

You have to buy a ticket for 11 trips in Metro or bus, and it is like 350 rublos so we did the Metro that goes all around the center of Moscu and stop at 5 stations where one was better than the other. So different some had frescos , other statues, but really is something never seen, so clean,... More

The most beautiful stations that I have ever set eyes upon. The London Underground now looks shabby and grim in comparison.
