Moscow city immersed in the constant traffic jams, hence, it is best to travel using the metro. Tickets for two-way for an adult is 110 Rubble (almost USD1.80) any distance. The metro system is known for its efficiency and speed. Some stations are beautifully decorated, like an underground luxury hotel ballroom, complete with crystal chandeliers. Some of the stations that... More

I'm used to being wowed by fancy, high-tech subway systems. This was the first time that happened to an "old" subway systems. The Moscow metro is indeed a destination in itself. Clearly the designers and builders took great pride in their work and should. The artwork and architecture in the system really tell the city's story. That the city managed... More

Line 3 is especially beautiful but the system itself is cheap, clean, safe and easy to use. A good way to get around moscow.

It is well decorated and desgned Metro that i have ever seen.Some stations looks like a art gallery. some stations are very deep from the entrance. Metro in St, Petersburg was really beautiful and fantastic. I strongly recommend 1.5 hour or 2 hour metro tour in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

The Moscow Metro is a thing of great beauty... a must visit if you are in the city. The mosaics, sculptures and engravings are worthy of being in any art gallery and you would never know you are in an underground. Slightly difficult to navigate if you are English as no signs are translated and the train always announces the... More

The only "bad" thing: almost everything is in russian no english but young speak english so you only have to catch one in good mood. If you dont want to use it you... More

Very useful, like in most cities. However, it really helps if you speak Russian or can at least decipher the Cyrillic. Just saying.

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.
