The Moscow underground is decorated in a style which was fashionable 100 years before the Metro was built and decorated. Each journey costs less than .50 euros. Amazing. every city in the world should have a system as efficient as this one.

If you want to be on time everywhere, choose Moscow metro. Avoid timing of business rush aroundc9am and 6pm. New stations and lines have been built recently to allow even more quick transition through the capital.

Very Clean, no graffiti, like walking the halls of a museum. Muscovites take pride in their city. Best to visit with a guide as it is quite confusing to navigate on your own.

Amazing experience. Some stations are just stunning, especially the ones from the brown line. A day ticket can be bought and it can be used on busses and trams too.
