No better way to get around Minsk. By European standards it's ridiculously cheap. A great way to see the daily travails of Minsk natives going to and fro throughout the city.

It´s not impressive as Moscow´s, but some old stations are still worth a visit. It´s a very efficient way of travelling in the city, and cheap.

Fast, efficient, safe, punctual, easy to use and above all very cheap (about 25p a ride) The best way to get around Minsk. Just be aware that it is very well used and can be a bit crowded at times.

It was easy to use the Minsk metro. Our worries were over-estimated. It's considered clean and safe. It consists of only two lines, currently. Apparently, it's forbidden to take pictures inside of it. Too bad, some stations are very nice and Soviet-style.

It was very interesting to take a look at the Minsk metro - the latest metro constructed in the USSR in 1986. It is very small - two lines only with one transfer station in the center of the city. It takes about 4 minutes...More

This is a super inexpensive and fast way to get around town. There are only three lines so not complicated at all. There are even signs in English and announcements in English once on the Metro.
