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 decor on the Metro is spectacular and well worth exploring. We had travelled on it before our group organised visit which took in the stations with the most impressive decor.

I've heard about the Moscow metro stations my whole life and they did not disappoint. In some stations, there are mosaics on the ceiling all in the correct perspective. There are plane flying over your head, apple trees with ladders to climb to pick the apples, parachutists falling through the air looking like they might land on you. The one, and maybe only, thing Stalin got right. The ones in St Petersburg are also beautiful, maybe even a little better. Each station is different, probably each by a different artist.

Most metro stations in Central Moscow are museums by themselves. There are brilliant sculptures and many more pieces of art effects. It is must visit. Spend at least half day if not more to visit these stations

Moscow metro is the most artistic metro in the world! Where else you'll find stations decorated with paintings, mosaics or sculptures? What to speak about special trains which make you to feel yourself as in Tretyakov Gallery!

Most of the metro stations have been well designed and are mini works of urban art. Revolutionary Square was my favourite you've just got to rub those brass statues. Travel around and find your own favourite. There are trips when you can pay to be taken around but why would you want to do that. For 28 roubles you buy a ticket and you can stay down there all day !
