Even if the subway stations are very particular, along with the old fashion decoration, to reach my destination was a nightmare. The panels were written in Cyrillic only. I had a turistic guide with the names of the stations tranlated in English, but the Cyrillic names did not match exactly. The trains are old and slightly dirty. On the train,... More

I had heard stories about the beautiful interiors of the Moscow subway stations, but nothing prepared me for the reality. We were taken to many, many stations by our private tour guide who very efficiently had us on and off trains with no problems, despite the volume of people traffic on the subway. We covered maybe 15 stations, and he... More

The Moscow metro is something you need to visit. Like London escalators bring you very deep under ground, where you find very nice and beautiful historical stations. The trains are old and needs to be renewed urgently. Also make sure you know the Cyrillic names, as nothing signed in English (besides exit). A map with English/Cyrillic names is your best... More

For the price of a ticket (less than € 0,50) you can spend as much time underground as you want and see the palaces of the people that Stalin build. I made a tour of about 2 hours with a colleague and we were amazed. Smiling solders, happy farmers, Lenin and flag and that in mosaic, marble, stained glass windows... More

The Moscow metro is very unique, every station is filled with new character that describes a bit of history about the city. For instance, "Ploshad' Revolucii" is where the Red Square is describes a lot about the Wold War 2 and almost tells a story of what went on during that time. Just beautiful and definitely worth taking a ride... More

You should visit the metro! The train is crappy, but the stations are very beautiful. I could recommend Mayakovskaya, Dostoyevskaya, Kiyevskaya and Prospekt Mira.

One of Moscow's highlights and probably the best metros in the world! Every station looks like a grand historical museum or mini mansion, and my god they are all so so so deep. Everything's in Russian so great for practising your cyrillic alphabet down here!

Moscow's showcase metro stations ate the most decorous in the world. Styles range from High Stalinist to ballroom glitz - amazing! Moscow's metro is one of the proudest achievements of the Soviet era. It is very efficient and the best way to get around in Moscow.

Pay one price and ride all you want. Wander around, take pictures, watch millions of people going about their business. Stay away during morning and evening rush, and beware of pickpocketing.

The escalators are also amazing just going for 100 metres on some of them. You get around from A to B very easy. The only thing i did find is that... More
