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.

The metro system is super easy to use, the "troika" card is super simple, the metro is very clean and found it to be the quickest way to get from one side of Moscow to another.

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!
