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.
We booked our Moscow tour with Express to Russia. It was supposed to be just the city tour and the Kremlin/Red Square tour, but our guide Elena was kind enough to add the Metro Tour. We just paid her $6 USD to cover the cost...More
Horrible queues at the peak hour which is 6 to 7am and pm. Don't go there during those hours. However, really pretty vintage stations and and wi-fi in trains. They recently introduced we trains that are spacious and even have chargers for phones.
Each Metro station are amazing by architecture and efficient.
The underground depth is just wow. Important security staff at the entrance and inside. People are quiet. No pipi smell and dirty corner like in EU. SAFE every all the day
If visiting Moscow, a must do! Take the metro for the experience and to see the beautiful underground metro stations.
You can purchase a 20-journey ticket for 747 rub. Approx. $11 USD. This will allow you to travel with ease and not worry about purchasing...More
We hopped a few metro stations to view the beautiful installations. This is my first time seeing such beautiful stations...normally its the facade/architecture. Was like walking into a palace! Was awestruck by the beauty.
Amazing amazing amazing of the few stations I saw. We visited one, on the way to Red Square that has bronze statues of wat heroes (I think), and their digs who should bring good luck.... I believe there are many more stations to see.
The Moscow Metro is just awesome! Really cheap (55p Sterling for a single trip!
Many of the stations are tributes to the people of Russia and their experiences through war and revolutions, and are depicted beautifully.
The whole Metro is a credit to the country!
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.

We arrived in the city by high speed train (from St. Petersburg), and were then transferred to subway with our tour guide. I don't know what stations we saw; we only saw a total of four stops on two different rides. It was beautiful, but with just a glimpse I liked the subway in St. Petersburg better.
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.
