There are a number of Moscow Metro stations that are worth visiting (about 10 - the rest you just use because they help you get places). The effort that has been put into dressing up certain stations is amazing - with mosaics, paintings, statues, chandeliers, busts, etc. It was mainly done in the 1930s and is largely heavy communist propaganda...

I would never have believed that the Metro of a major city could be an attraction in its own right. The Metro stations we visited were all large, clean and full of interesting and beautiful mosaics relevant to their history. We visited several as we travelled around Moscow and enjoyed them all. The system is cheap (50 roubles (60 pence)... More

This is not the easyestmetro system to get around on. A lack of English signs makes it difficult. Staff tend to be very rude and unhelpful. However there are a few staff who are helpful but very few. I find asking the younger Moscovites who ride the system tend to be more helpful with directions and advice. The best part... More

My wife and I took a Rive Cruise from St Petersburg to Moscow. We met some great people and learned (at least we were told) a lot of history. I had expected that our visit to the Hermitage would be the highlight but was disappointed (see my review). We passed through the 2 largest lake in Europe and traversed 17... More

I love that each station had a unique design and the details were all so surprising! Great for a rainy day or night visit, we also used the Metro for daily travel and found service to be amazingly frequent and the system pretty easy to use. Cheap too! Each trip is 50R or about 90 cents USD. Can't beat it.

We used the Moscow metro heavily during our recent five-day visit. Knowing the Slavic alphabet helped immensely - though the on-train signage is bilingual. Much of the signage within the stations, however, is not bilingual, and so figuring out which side to board on might be challenging for someone who cannot read the Russian language. Finding the correct metro line... More

Subway stations can be so beautiful was never thought. Our tour guide took us to this station, took a ride to few stations and back. The guide gave us the tour of a few stations which were indeed beautiful and explained us about the history. Its a good short trip

You cannot come to Moscow and not enjoy the most beautiful metro system in the world! Go and explore the beautiful stations which host the most incredible mosaics and statues!

Moscow Metro is one of the rare things in \Rusiaa, that funcition smooth and you can relay on. Always clean, on time, but sadly a bit overcrowded.Still it is the best way, often also the fastest, to get from one part of Moscow to other. But the main atraction for me, were all the mosaics on the ceilings. Most of... More

Staying in Tverskaya

Neighborhood Profile
Tverskaya
Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long street populated with well-known shops and brands. But it’s more than shopping that makes this place interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy European pedestrian streets Bolshaya Dmitrovka or Stoleshnikov lane are a great place to start. Locals can be found here working, eating, shopping, resting and going to the Bolshoi Theatre in the evening.
