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 ceilings, walls, chandeliers, and bronze statues are magnificent. Don't forget to pet the now shiny nose of the soldier's dog for Good Luck!

The stations are very special, it's a bit hard to know where to go ith the trains, use the maps which are free of charge. Very cheap to travel with, it really works

Cultural experience a must, Moscow hosts some of the most amazing underground stations in terms of art, architecture and depth, it is also a good way of getting around Moscow if you know where you are going, since most of Moscow's traffic is at a constant standstill. However, avoid peak hours if possible, an enjoyable experience can easily turn into rather an unpleasant feeling of being a sardine in a tin.

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
