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.

My new favorite subway system is the Moscow Metro. It is also one of the must-see sights of Moscow and the best deal in town; a single ticket (good for one trip anywhere within the system) is only 28 RUB (less than one U.S. Dollar as of Oct, 2012). The system is well-organized, relatively clean, and I never waited more than about three minutes for a train. Practicality aside, the Moscow Metro is most notable for the amazing art installations and architectural details in each station. I didn’t see any of the Moscow Metro Dogs.

Moscow is a city famous for the traffic jams. And than there is a Moscow metro - it been used by millions every day and it is still looks great and brings you to the the destination better than any Bently on the streets of Moscow. In the hey days of the Soviet Union it was probably a little cleaner but it was grown since and if you are in Moscow it is a must see attraction. Nothing close to NY subway.

Everybody talked about the Metro so I decided to go to 4 stations recommended by locals. Decoration of these stations was soooo beautiful. Do not skip them but make sure you go with a local or that you are really good moving in Metros because although simple EVERYTHING is in Russian.

take the circle line, go up and down at each station. You will have one metro each 50 seconds and you have jsut time to see and put some pictures. each one is different. Do not see only the statues or paints. the lights are crazy . they a re differnet in each station and in coherence with the thema of the platform
