They have very nice metros. At one of the metro stations is at this moment exhibiton of pictures of Slovenia (my homeland). Back to the point - different stations, paintings, sculpures.. and very cheap. If you buy TROJKA card, one ride costs 36 rubels.

Moscow is a fantastic place to visit, and the subway is a national treasure. Each stop on the line is decorated differently.

Everyone who has been said it is a must and it certainly was. We were lucky enough to be taken by a guide to navigate all and explore the stations. You could do this yourself and felt very safe .

I spend two hours one evening travelling from one station to the next, all for the cost of one journey, so see the amazing Soviet-inspired station architecture. This is a must-do when in Moscow.
