If you've only experienced the metro in North America, this is a very pleasant surprise. It is clean, it is spacious, high ceilings it looks nothing like the dungeons in the USA. The only negative is all signs were in Russian only when I was there, so it may be a little difficult if you don't read Russian.

There are underground stations in Moscow which are significantly different to any I have come across in other cities. That difference is in their architecture which is well worth seeing. Go on an organised tour which will take you to those of note. Can be done in a couple of hours and has the benefit of taking a train back... More

It's different and artistic, but just metro. Yes i like it. But dangerous, because too old and neglected. And there is no English or latin letters. How it will be touristic???

Moscow metro is really grandious. If you are visiting Moscow for few days you have to take ride and see at least few most Popular stations. This is really piece of art.

The Moscow Subway stations are spectacular. An early tour will reassure you that they are a safe, easy to use and convenient way to get around day and night.

Very unusual metro/subway. A work of art. Very clean, beautiful art/statuary, runs on time, worth a visit, should not be missed when in Moscow.

The stations are works of art, with sculptures, and murals that are well maintained. The place is immaculate. If there was graffiti on a wall or subway car, it's cleaned off immediately. Impressive

We were introduced to the Metro by our guide who gave us very useful information on how to buy tickets; hold up the number of fingers matching the number of journeys you want to make to the people in the booth. Simple. She then took us on a short tour through 3 or 4 stations including a stop at Ploshchad... More

If you go to Moscow and do not travel in the Metro then you have not seen Moscow. It is really very Grand. Each and every station is unique. The Metro was created at the time of Stalin. Even the air vents have designs on them. Never seen such a long and fast escalator. It is always crowded so to... More
