If you are a tourist and want to have a very unique experience be sure to ride the metro. The metros in Russia are maintained very well. They are also very deep in the ground. The Russian metro systems are so much better than NYC, San Francisco, Boston, etc. Be sure not to miss this.

The Moscow Metro is one of the oldest underground train systems in the world. It is fast, efficient, inexpensive, and easy to negotiate. You can buy single trip tokens or a multi-trip card. In July, a 20 trip card cost 650 roubles. A trip lasts from when you enter the system to when you leave it so if you want... More

Various metro stations are attractions in themselves. Bronze sculptures, marble columns, mosaics, chandeliers are only a few of the sights. It is almost like visiting a museum, you have to remind yourself you are here for transportation. Metro travel itself is fast and efficient. A must see!

Absolutely beautiful, especially compared to the dirty London ones. I couldn't keep my mind off the walls and the chandeliers! The people were also really kind around here.

Moscow metro deserves all the praise it gets from tourists. Just avoid rush hours (8-10 am, 5-7 pm). Many visitors complain about lack of English, it is now being fixed, there are 3 lines (# 5, 7 and 14) with announcements in English, floor signs in English and by 2018 Fifa World Cup the whole system will get a brand...

Easy to navigate yourself around the circle of beautiful metro stations...with stained glass, statues, mosaics... If yo wanted to know the history you would need a guide, but just to them for yourself is a treat on a rainy day.

Used the Metro extensively while on a week long trip to Moscow. Of all the metros I have used, have to say this one rates up there with the best - better than NYC, on a par with Paris/London. First - the cost is decent - 50 rub per ride. Trains are quick and efficient, and move every minute or... 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.
