It simply saved us a fortune using the Moscow Metro. It's incredibly efficient and easy to use. Just go ahead and use it and if you're having difficulty you'll easily encounter a willing Muscovite that will show you the way!

I have been using the Moscow Metro for years and it is a great place. Palaces of the People, I think the stations were called. So many are like beautiful halls with mirrors and hanging lights. However, I would say that for visitors, this is one of the most confusing places to fins oneself. If you don't read any Russian... More

Travelling with Metro train was good experience where the metro train stations are really in the deep. Whenever you start goin g underground , you can see that stairs are so long that even you cannot see the another side of starting points. But it is not with all stations only few. Metros Coming on time and normally all stations... More

You can take the ride just to awe at the awesome stations which are work of art. An the elevators are amazing, once you hop on you can't see their end they are so deep!

The stations impress the decoration and detail. Despite the language difference is very easy to get around. The stations are very well signposted, the available map perfectly meets and the people are quite solicitous.

I spent a few days in Moscow, and some of the most fun I had was hanging out and people watching on the Metro. The architecture is so different from the transit in my home city of Boston. I felt more like I was in a kind of run-down museum. Ah, but the people! From the most derelict beggar to... More

Moscow's metro system is well designed, highly efficient, and user friendly. If you aren't able to read Russian, you might have a hard time sorting it out without help. Each station is a unique work of art that makes you feel like you've traveled back in time. Get out there and ride those rails!

While the metro itself is impressive, sometimes taking you down five levels and forcing you to question just how much earth is above you, the themed stations are simply not to be missed. The metro maps and signs are so easy to read, I had no problem at all navigating by myself. There are a number of stations that are... More
