Riding the city's underground subway system is a sightseeing tour in itself with huge, vaulted, marble-columned stations - some with ornate mosaics and splendid stained glass - designed and decorated by famous Russian architects and sculptors.

We love the metro despite the lack of lifts. There is some great architecture and design - my favourite is Ploshad Revolutzi which makes it a tourist destination as much as a means of transport. Main thing is that it is a very convenient way...More

Visiting the Metro is a must in Moscow. It is really interesting to see the paintings and chandeliers. Apart from the fantastic surroundings, the trains are frequent, cheap and clean

We heard so much about the stations we had to see for ourselves but nothing prepared us for those stations. They are amazing, some stations have themes and are so special. I highly recommend you go to see them

Instead of rushing out of the metro or rushing to catch a train, stop and look at your surroundings. More often than not, they are incredibly beautiful, and even some of the less popular stations are still interesting (for example Partizanskaya)

Visited x 4 stations to view their specific style, really liked the bronze coloured lifestyle sculptures, particularly the dog that everyone "pats". Also liked the station with paintings, all well worth a visit

Probably best to go with the Moscow Metro tour guides. It's fairly cheap and they take you to about 6 of the stations. It's a great introduction to the metro before you go exploring on your own. We had a fantastic guide who... More
