One of the most outstanding features of Moscow is its Metro. It is spectacular, and it costs virtually nothing to view it. It is both a working metro system and a museum of Russian art depicting the Imperial era and the Soviet era. A must see!

Each station has its own story with intrigue history. You can clearly see the layers of time passing by each station. A metro trip is must for history, art lovers.

Decorated with mosaics, paintings, sculptures and carvings - just beautiful. AND it's useful and convenient for transportation although you may spend time looking at all the sights at each station and miss your train.

We were a bit apprehensive about using the Moscow Metro, but since using a taxi is a risky proposition in Russia, and we had no cell service to call for Uber, we gave the Metro a try. There is an English option on the ticket machines, which was great. The stations themselves are beautiful and very clean. Same with the... More

Stalin wanted the subway to be a Russian showcase for visitors, and he pulled out the stops here. Best to use a guidebook or have a guide to the best metro stops. You will find artwork that turns the subway stations into museums. The fare to enter is very inexpensive, and you can travel anywhere, transfer as much as you... More

Having visited a lot of metros in different cities, Moscow's one is definitely the most beautiful in the world so far (I have been to only 44 countries...)! It is a whole museum and you won't regret your visit

Once you learn to read Russian the subway map will be the most important thing to go anywhere. The ring line helps alot in getting extra time instead of taking the lines crossing the town. Amazing stations and many references for movies-buffs.

There are a number of Moscow Metro stations that are worth visiting (about 10 - the rest you just use because they help you get places). The effort that has been put into dressing up certain stations is amazing - with mosaics, paintings, statues, chandeliers, busts, etc. It was mainly done in the 1930s and is largely heavy communist propaganda...

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.
