Interesting to visit. Unusually ornate and interesting metro stops. Unfortunately, it is also very popular with the professional thieves of Moscow. These pickpockets can defeat your best efforts and totally screw up a trip

So I could have given this 5 but rated 4 because the names of the stations are all in Russian and so had to make sure we know where we were going or else we would be lost. I absolutely love the fact that it's so convenient from our hotel that we stayed at to wherever we wanted to go... More

There is no easier, faster, or cheaper way of traveling in Moscow than on the Metro. It is the archetypal example of Soviet public works: grand, detailed, and patriotic, and packed with serious looking people. And they are so deep under ground that I can only assume they were to double as bomb shelters. The lines are color coded, and... More

This was a beautiful architectural and historical experience. Sadly, all signs and route maps are in Russian in the cyrillic alphabet so very hard to find your way around. But friendly staff, while they couldn't speak English, were happy to help out with a lot of pointing and hand gesturing. Definitely a must see in Moscow!

a real treat. We had a guide who talked about each of the stations but you can simply do it by yourself for the price of one metro ticket. Take your time to appreciate the beauty of each station which are decorated in patriotic Art Deco style. Each station is different and the detail is exquisite. A must in Moscow.

Part of Moscow holiday was a tour of the Metro with Academservice. Alexie explained everything about how these stations were made to celebrate victories or share wealth with the common people. So much to see, steep escalators and beautiful paintings and sculptures. Trains every minute, 9m people use it daily. What a public transport system and so cheap. Put Melbourne... More

The hing to do is to buy a carnet of tickets, either by no. Of days or no. Of journeys as queues can be long and english is not spoken much so you'll have to do it Ruski Styl. Not only is the metro a good way of getting around the city, but the metro stations themselves are cathedrals in... More

I agree with all that has been said about he Moscow Metro. Fast and very busy with some beautiful stations. My tip - before you go download 2 metro maps, one in Cyrillic and one in normal Latin script. Decide which station you want to go to on the Latin script, then find that station on Cyriic script map and... More

We used the Metro today for the first time, it was exciting and we got to where we wanted to be. Please check which lines to travel because it is all in Russian and only English is the way out sign. It was fun and we enjoyed it.
