We visited only 3 different stations but were amazed at the beauty in the design of those three, both down where the metro trains were and above where you got your tickets. If you go for no other reason than to check out the design from different eras, it is worth it. We were there in the middle of the... More

As part of our tourist itinerary, our 2 guides, one who travelled with us from abroad and one local brought our group of 20 to try the Moscow Subway. They chose two stations said to be more iconic. The first leg of journey was fine as we boarded the train as a group and were settled in the same compartment.... More

Moscow metro is very old. The net is huge, all parts of town are well connected. The trains are very very fast and I have never waited more than 2 minutes. There are murals and mosaics on the walls in some stations, sculptures and other art pieces on every huge station. Like some underground museum. This is the cheapest way... More

We had a day (06/09) to fill before catching a train eastwards, so we decided to walk around to Arbatskaya Metro station and purchased a couple of tickets which had ten journeys on them. We then made our way to the Park Kultury stop, which is the nearest for Gorky Park. Having walked through the park, we found Frunzenskaya station... More

Buying the metro ticket from a machine was the easy bit! 40rub (70p). A woman in the ticket office ignored us, then shook her head when we pointed at an underground map. That was at Kitay Gorod Metro. ALL signs were in Russian, NO English. No announments by male or female voices, as we were told they denote direction trains... More

If you can read russian alphabets, it is very easy to use metro in moscow. Cheap and it is better then to use taxis in moscow, because of the heavy traffic. There are many stations, some are new, some are old and clean, and some are old and non clean. The most Luxury station that I have ride from it... More

I visited a lot of the stations and they are all different styles and design and VAST in size. I've not seen anything like this! They are so beautiful. Some are full of soviet symbols.

Best historic metro we have experienced. It is cheap and covers all you need to see of Moscow. It is efficient, frequency of trains is such that it would be exceptional to walk from one end of a platform to the other without a train arriving. It is clean and functional although signs are written in Cyrillic a little familiarisation... More

I went on a metro tour with a tour guide and the stations are amazing. They vary from what can only be described as 'palace like' complete with chandeliers, to communist tributes with amazing themes and statues throughout. I would recommend booking a tour for this as they will know the best stations to go to and will be able... More

This is truly one of the most amazing experiences of a visit to Moscow. It is excellent value and very efficient, not to mention stunningly beautiful BUT to use it as a means of transport you really need to know the Russian Alphabet in order to read the destinations and know which direction to travel in. On the whole, the... More
