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...

Most part of Moscow metro are underground. Only the new peripheral lines are above the ground level. Metro is the backbone of transportation system in the city. It is quite rushy during rush hours with no place at all. During summer it is hot in metro as there is no AC. Some of the stations are beautifully designed as revolution... More

Because the Soviet Regime deemed the subway stations to be 'workers' palaces', they didn't save money in decorating them beautifully. Each station is greater than the last! I especially like arbatskaia, but the most curious one is Ploshad Revolutsie, which is lined by dozens of bronze statues representing the russian people. Look for the dog whose nose everyone touches (it... More

From cultural, historical and artistic point of view the following stations are recommended as the must see in Moscow metro: Brown (Circle) line: Novoslobodskaya, Prospekt Mira, Komsomolskaya, Taganskaya, Paveletskaya, Kievskaya, Krasnopresnenskaya, Belorusskaya. From Belorusskaya there is a change to the Green line where Mayakovskaya is the must see (don't miss the massive monument just in the middle of the change... More

This is a wonderful. Way to see Moscow city and the stations have beautiful works of art. The best time is off peak, we went after lunch. It is a busy transport system but when everyone is on their train you get a chance to sit down and look at the wonderful mosaics, paintings, statues and stain glass windows. It... More
