We went on the metro as part of an evening excursion from our river cruise ship Andrei Rublov. It certainly is a must do journey to see the fantastic architecture in the stations. Wonderful stained glass panels, bronze sculptures, lights and wall panels. We left the metro near the GUM departmental store, a visual feast at night when the whole... More

If you plan a visit to Moscow, the capital of Russia, make sure you take a tour of its metro, especially the older central Moscow stations built between 1935 and 1965. The stations and the metro system, which the ordinary Moscovites are so used to, are a state of the art and bring around a feeling of being in a... More

We had a Moscow greeter who showed us wonderful stations, can't believe the opulence of some of the stations, I will upload the photos on my return home but just wow.

In my opinion you have not been to Moscow if you have not been in Moscow iconic Metro (Subway/Underground). I am not talking about the train itself or the transport/transportation but the whole aspect of Moscow underground. Moscow underground is iconic, stunning and in itself a Museum. Whilst it might be unpleasant travelling on Moscow Metro (especially during the rush... More

The metro is way over crowded. You packed in like sardines. They need more trains, or lines. Moscow is a big city as well, so as a traveler you will most likely see it for yourself.

Each metro station has it's own and unique design, a lot of people everywhere, beautiful and fast and efficiency trains all the time. The only bad thing I can say about it is that there are not English signs at all and very hard for English speaking people for navigation as the local staff and most people do not speak... More

Heard a lot about the Moscow Metro, and it was all true the architecture was amazing, bit tricky to use the metro as obviously can't pronounce any the stations so have to count the stations that you want to get on & off at!

Infact almost all Metro vagoons on all lines are to be renewed top urgently,because all of them are dirty... More

Stupendous & extremely lavish. Even if you do not wish to travel on the metro, you still need to go & see it. It is a wonderful piece of ingenuity & so very clean.

i had know idea what a magnificent experience i would be (although i have heard and read so much about it before), until i actually did it. and the only way to really "enjoy" it is to make the metro tour a special event. i have used some of the stations before i toured them and because i was always...
