“Impressive but move fast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Metro is a bit cleaner than NYC or London and much deeper, convenient to travel all over much of Moscow especially to avoid the traffic, very loud, nice mosaics

“a must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

make sure you spend a few hours checking out the varied stations especially in the circle line. It is rather confusing to find your way around, be patient, and remember its no loss to check out more stations than planned.

“Cheap to Visit and Best Way to get Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

The Metro is another must see in Moscow, and really is the best way to get around although a little daunting without a guide. Signs are all in Russian so a map would be necessary. The place is very grand with all the marble and each station is decorated in a different way. We loved the station with all the sculptures - one a man with a dog gave you good luck if you touched his nose. Others had very ornate ceilings with grand chandeliers etc.
Rush hour is probably not the best time to tackle the Metro for the first time as it really is packed and there is only standing room on the train. We found the people were very good and they didn't push or shove to get on or off. People also stood for the elderly and those needing a seat. Travelling by Metro is real taste of Moscow we felt. Lastly, if you don't like heights, the escalators can be a little daunting travelling up several storeys in places.

“A living monument”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

If You are going and visit Moscow, You MUST go around with the Metro.
But, remember use a map and train yourself with Cyrillic Alphabet (We found latin written text only inside the trains).
You'll enjoy each and every station and you'll move fast inside the City.
Remember also to have small change in ruble (one way ticket costs 28 rubles)

“art in a surprising place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

I had heard about going to the metro but until you do it you will not believe how beautiful it is. All the figures are "kind of " in Soviet art but they are quite amazing.
