Very efficient with a lot of stations all over the city. As Moscow is huge there are more than 180 stations (!) trains are rapid and modern. All the signs in Russian so if you don't speak/read the local language, you need to be a pretty good navigator in order not to get lost. The signs with the "plan" for... More

the first thing we liked walking into metro station was the heath.....compared to minus 22 degrees C outside, it was hot in the inside. And walking through all those tunnels, so light and artistic, with so many statues, paintings, mosaic....if going to Moscow, you definitely have to take one ride (1 eur) under the ground!

You can find subways around the world like in New York, probably the ugliest, but very large and eficient. Or like in London, perhaps the oldest, deepest and also very large and eficient. But I'm sure that you will not find in the world a subway like in Moskow. It is deep, large, eficient and has a unique characteristic: most... More

The subway stations are an authentic living museum, with so many artworks. They're very deep, so you have to get used to the steps. It will be better if you have a metro line plant in english, because every signal is typed in cyrillic alphabet.

The most beautiful metro I have seen so far! But beware and take it not on peak hours as then is no fun at all - to much crowd then!!! At best for weekends.

Moscow metro is truly one of the best in the world. Here's a tip: spend a day or half a day in Moscow metro! Just get there and move from station to station. There are several lines (color coded on the map) and you can transition from place to place. Every station is unique and beautiful. It's like a huge... More

Easy to figure out,fast, efficient, frequent and very affordable. It is of course often crowded, hello, it's public transportation, and it makes for fun people watching. Look for the couples who take advantage of the very long escalator rides to kiss. One will be riding backwards! Don't expect much help from the other commuters, they're busy and not really interested.... More

The Moscow Metro is probably one of the best in the world and also having some of the deepest stations in the world. At some stations, the time you would take to reach the next station after boarding the metro would be much shorter than the actual time you would be spending in the escalator to reach the underground station...

It was really crowded when we entered the metro. But what makes you amazed is the regulated system, trains coming on time, people being polite , not pushing you hard to get on or off. They wait for others to go out and then they enter. And of course the famous underground palaces of some stations I was lucky to... More
