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.

On our last day in Moscow, our guide took us to visit the metro stations. We took one of the trains and got out at the famous Komsomolskaya Station. We were surprised when we step foot in the station. We did not expect the station...More
The Moscow Metro (subway) is unlike any I’ve ever been in in my travels throughout the world. The subway trains themselves are typical as far as comfort and interiors. They can also be a little crowded at times, just like anywhere. It’s the stations themselves...More
Perfect transit network. Make sure you know which exit to take. Weekly pass (750 rub or so) was way useful than the single ride passes I used to buy for 80 rubles each. You can't get lost if you follow the routes exactly as google...More
The Moscow Metro is a marvel and a must see. Efficient, historical and stunning. Most of the impressive stations are on the circle/brown line but make sure you also go to Komsomolskaya and Ploshad Revolutsia.
What a great subway system. Awesome architecture! Fast, efficient, clean and really economical! Get on a train, any train, and the recorded voice instructions given in Russian (and English for those who need it) are so simple to follow. Could not believe how fast and...More
It is well known that the metro is almost like an art gallery. But it is also an easy to use and fast method of transport around the city. Station names are in English and on-board announcements also have a translation as well now. So...More
Moscow metro is very interesting. A lot has been said about it, bit what most called my attentio were how deep into the Earth it is and how frequent the trains pass. The escalators were huge. I never saw anything like that. And, I took...More
Khamovniki could be considered a city of its own – here it’s possible to find some of Moscow’s most important cultural institutions such as the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the Novodevichy Convent and Trubetskikh Estate, great sport locations such as Luzhniki stadium and aqua complex, and long and beautiful Luzhniki embankment. Pick your preferred form of transport to explore the area – bicycle or
river cruise during the summer and taxi in winter as many of the great places are situated beyond a short walk.
Moscow Metro features 222 stations, so a bit out of hand to list them all. For visiting purposes, I would recommend to stick to the brown line (the smallest circle), and whatever is inside of it if you want to visit actual... More
Moscow Metro features 222 stations, so a bit out of hand to list them all. For visiting purposes, I would recommend to stick to the brown line (the smallest circle), and whatever is inside of it if you want to visit actual stations.
If you need a whole list, Wiki has it, and also has pages for most of the stations, with picture and additional info.
I really don't recall names of the stations. However, I recall taking a Metro nearest to Red Square. 1 - 2 hours are sufficient to travel / see many stations. I travelled from Red square to see a circus. In about an hour I... More
I really don't recall names of the stations. However, I recall taking a Metro nearest to Red Square. 1 - 2 hours are sufficient to travel / see many stations. I travelled from Red square to see a circus. In about an hour I saw 5 metro stations. All are unique. Ask your local guide / hotel tour desk that you would like to see a metro station that was built prior to second world war.
