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.

This is definitely the most beautiful metro I've ever been! Just make sure to go with a map or to understand a bit of Russian, as there are no signs in English.

The Moscow Metro is a must to see and use. Our guide quickly took us to the most beautiful or interesting stations. We did not see one that was not worth time to admire. Soo clean and well cared for.

Our tour guide took us thru several station stops on the subway so we could see the magnificent stations along our trip. They belong in museum. Hard to believe that 7 million people use this system every day. Make a point to visit the subway.

That more or less says it all. It is a highly efficient transportation system set apart from many others by the exceptional quality of the station furnishings and decoration. Apart from the decor it is the usual - swirling crowds and foul air.

Probably best to go with the Moscow Metro tour guides. It's fairly cheap and they take you to about 6 of the stations. It's a great introduction to the metro before you go exploring on your own. We had a fantastic guide who... More
