“People Zoo”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Some lines everytime very busy. Inside wagons now a little bit better coz new wagons have a condition system, but at the spring, early summer it like people zoo, smelly, busy, sweat people. And be careful coz many incidents happening in the Moscow underground. And watching for your pockets, mobile phones on the neck and for your bags as well! Have a cool journey by Moscow Metro ;-)

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We loved the Moscow Metro. The stations are amazing, with beautiful stations and lobbies in a lot of the downtown stations. In addition, they were always punctual and only 28 Rubles.

“Explore at your leisure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

At first it is loud and daunting but once you get to grips with it you'll never be off it! It opens up the rest of the city to be explored. One major advantage is that is extremely cheap about 56rbls for 2 journeys (about £1) and there is no restriction on distance travelled. Maybe London should follow suit!

The moscow metro is full of beautiful marble stations. It is well worth the exploration. I particularly liked Partizanskaya.

“It's not transport, it's show-off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

From my point of view, Moscow's underground is not transport, it's show-off.
There are problems that must be solved but nobody would like to solve it. Certainly if you travel by it only for tourists purpose it may be nice. But using it every day isn't.

“Make sure you have a translator”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The Metros are very beautifully decorated, like much of the city; however, they are not easy to navigate unless you can understand Cyrillic script. I was lost. Figured it out by just comparing literature to signs.
