“Gallery ןמ Motion”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Moscow's metro stations are memorials artistically decorated . Seen as a vitrine of the Soviet regime in his heydays . it is most recommended to reserve the time and travel between the various stations . choose the stations in advance and build them into orbit. Most beautiful are the circular line and can be viewed using the HOP ON HOP OFF method.
I used this link to plan my tour
BUT remember
The principles of the Moscow metro signs should understand before entering
1 - color code and the number of lines on maps no meaning in " real life "
2 - The name of the platform and the station and it in russian only
That means no problem in a regular station but Life gets difficult when you have to replace ..
The solution is : When looking down at one platform signage (no color ) with the name of the line . The transition is performed using tunnels (after you find it)

“Nothing else like it”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

I had always wanted to ride the Metro in Moscow. It was fantastic and I visited about 12 to 15 metro stops. Each was very different and amazing. Make sure you find a day to travel the Metro and amaze at the wonders of the Russians.

“Efficient with spectacular stations”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

One of the must see in Moscow, yet quite naturally on your sightseeing plan as the level of traffic in Moscow strongly discourage from using ground transport.

“Moscow metro is the most beautiful metro in the world”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Moscow metro is a must see place in Moscow! Every metro station in Moscow metro is different and very special. Many artists were working to create the design of stations. Most of the stations are built using very expensive minerals and materials.
