People are stunned when I show them photos of the Moscow Metro. I never would have thought that such architectural beauty could be present in something so seemingly cold and heartless as a public subway system. Not only that, but the trains ran smoothly as well, much more so than any I have ridden in the US.

Absolutely recommend it to everyone one. Besides breath-taking art works, it shows a major part of Russian's culture. Also suggest you take a good local tour guide that helps you better understanding of there.

The Moscow metro system is rapid, efficient but not the cleanest or quietest subway system in the world. Still, where else can you see colossal statues, stained glass or chandeliers in the stations?

Where I live our train system is rubbish. We visited three different lines and there was only 1.5 to 2.5 minutes between trains! No, really! In Melbourne if you miss a train you open War and Peace and expect to finish before the next train. But all that aside, the stations are all works of art. Really cool! Russian history... More

This something one should not miss in Moscow. Infact there are many such stations which has amazing architecture. The station is also called Kitay Gorad. Visit during off peak hours to get a uninterrupted view

What an incredibly large system! It is clean and well marked but you do have to know where you are going as it is complex. Trains are clean and efficient with waiting times less than 90 seconds between most trains. Impressive complex.

I really enjoy walking when visiting a city. But for Moscow, I really recommend mixing walk and MTR. The metro is quite unique, each station is different and it's historically valuable. The most pleasant metro I have ever tried !

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.
