“Every station is unique”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Every station is unique, you have the feeling that you travel inside a museum, since every station is full of statues paintings etc. Plus its very convinient since it can take you anywhere you want in Moscow. Relatively cheap compared to what it offers

“Clean and Impressive!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

A sight to see. Extremely clean, organized, and civil - the way you would expect during Soviet times as well! Easy to get around to all touristy sites.

Lovely decor, frequent trains but that is all. You need to plan in advance, take a photo of your stops so you can compare the Cyrillic as it is difficult o try and translate from English. Signage is poor and NOBODY wants to help you. Trying to buy a ticket is rather trying so make sure you are very well prepared...... use Ggogle translate for all your questions, plan in advance and then have a screenshot that you can show the people as they will not try and communicate in anything other than Russian (some of the younger women were much more helpful!!!).
Other than frustrations with transport, multiple metal detectors etc. Moscow is Fab!!!!!! :)

“The fastest way to get around”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

It is very well connected i must say...perfect way to get around Moscow. The connections are pretty much straight forward with different coloured lines. It gives you the 'old-world' feeling with beautiful architecture. Like any other subways in the world, people move very fast and don't forget to stay on the right hand-side of the escalator if you do not wish to walk (because in my country we stand on the left). The only setback for me was, no english signage. For me who doesn't speak or read Russian, it was a bit challenging. The tricks are carry the metro map, see those coloured lines, see the name of the station and match the writing on the map and on the signage and for confirmation just stop anyone who looks approachable and ask them. From my experience, those younger generation seems to be more friendly and they usually know if not much at least a little english. Another tip is see those who are carrying or reading an english book, they will definitely speak english. The best part from my experience, i actually made friends with the local girl i met on the metro while trying to figure my way. She was really helpful and very nice that she took time to guide me to the station i wanted to go. Thank you Karina! Oh yea, and the fares is cheap too.

“Central metro stations”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Great and unique architecture, this is one of the "must-see" places in Moscow. There is no such an underground anywhere else in the World. But its really busy and hectic almost always, choose the right time to see and make pictures (weekend mornings, maybe later hours after ten pm, Moscow never sleeps).
