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.

It's enough to get to Moscow underground to study Russia's history and Russia's prejudice. The most travelled and most beautiful ones are Kievskaya ( ring road) , Mayakovskaya, Ploshad' Revolucii ( the prejudice is for good luck to rub the nose of the dog), Arbatskaya, Kropotkinsaya - it's all the Stalin era contraction, but nowhere else you will find so much style and architecture underground. Some off othe main rounte stations that look gorgeous are Aeroport - with lights behind the marble blocks, Vorobievi gory - station on the bridge over Moscow river that was renovating for 19 year.
Overall - is you escape rush hours, Moscow metro is great - relatively cheap ( 30 roubles a ride with no zone system) and beautiful!
If you travel at late hours - act as local - don't look people in the eyes not to get extra attention and wear headphones if you travel alone.

It is cheap. For example 500 RUB for 20 travels.
Make sure to get on quick, the doors closes really fast.
Some stations are amazingly beautiful, especially for just being parts of a great transportation-network in one of the world's biggest cities. Many beautiful paintings and sculptures to see.
Most of the Metro lines have old and soisy carts. Sometimes impossible to have a conversation when the train is moving.
The roads are most of the time very busy. It's often a faster choice to travel by metro. The trains are going very frequently. It's measured in seconds, when the next train is coming.

The metro station must be almost a kilometer below the ground level. It is pretty scary to use a 600 - 800meter long escalator to reach the station. I am sure that even nuclear war can't harm the metro system of Moscow. Their network is a benchmark to the world. Their punctuality is remarkable. The architecture is admirable. Please don't believe on people who tell you that, "You might get robbed in the metro". Its all rubbish. Russian are extremely nice & friendly people with good moral values. They will never hurt you without an objectionable reason. It was fun traveling by the most beautiful & efficient metro in the world.

It was amazing that Moscow Metro is included in sight seeing. We were not willing initially but when we went it was like a Museum 100 meters below. Every Metro underground has its own individuality...Mosaic Work , Glass Work, Sculptures ...Breathtaking paintings and what not....
