Owner description: 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.

The stations inside the inner circle are the most beautiful in the world. The efficiency of the system is amazing - trains ever 50 seconds in peak time and no more than every 4 minutes in off-peak. WMATA and other U.S. metro services can only feel shame in comparison, and all that at less than $1 a trip!

I was blown away by the grandeur of the underground. Every station is different, marble, chandeliers, mosaics, frescoes, sculptures, showing Soviet life, ideals, history and military might. My favourite stations were Komsomolskaya and Kievskaya.
And it is efficient too. Trains every 2 - 3 minutes, cheap, and relatively easy to use, as long as you have the Russian & English language version of the map, and plan ahead. its worthwhile reading the metro guide on trip advisor for tips how to get around the metro and buying tickets.

There is no need to do an organised tour to see the metro, just follow the tour in the Traveller article section of trip advisor - http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g298484-c4156/Moscow:Russia:Moscow.Metro.Underground.Palace.html

You get the feeling going down the metro that this is a bomb shelter (it is!!!) since you are going down 500 meters or sometimes 1 km down. The art, the architecture is like a museum, it is a WoW - buy a ticket and explore, it is really worth to do this - visit 3 different subways and be surprised. You see something unique and really nice and also see how Moscovites live

The magnificence of this Metro is hard to describe. Apart from functioning very efficiently (if somewhat crowded for most of the time) the style and decoration of the stations is simply stunning. It is like travelling in a huge underground gallery.

Absolutely reliable, within 18month living in Moscow I never had problems with the metro. Take your mp3 player as it is terribly noisy in there (except some new trains). Most amazing metro stations can be found on the circle line (brown) just hop on and off on every station. It also is cheap (less than a euro) and you can go everywhere you want to.
