Owner description: 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.

When visiting Moscow definitely take time to travel the subway system. Amazing artistry and detail. Can be quite busy during rush hour so off hours is likely best.

Stylish, columns , statues, a place made for giants. Wonderful. But its hard to navigate , changing lines is particularly hard as there are few signs in english, . I know I am in Russia, why should there be signs in English , but even Tokyo is easier , and Russia you could make Moscow a tourist magnet , generate a lot of tourist currency with just a little thought on how to make the place accessible for non Russians, and English is no longer a western language but a lingua franca.

I'm amazed to see that a metro train station is built in a way that gives an impression of "entering a palace, art gallery and museum". A huge applaud to the architects/engineers who have worked to building such a commute monument.

Many of Moscow’s metro stations are architectural gems and well worth visiting. It is essential to realise that the metro is a very busy, vital and continuous element of Moscow’s transport system. Most central stations are very crowded. The platform concourses are often architecturally fabulous, but the elevators and passages to and between them are often dirty and congested, as with any Underground system. Many of these seemed to be lined with corrugated metal sheets and are often narrow and packed with travellers! Quite a few subways are lined with small shops which are worth looking in for bargains. Elevators are often very crowded and go very deep - interesting to see that it is common for folk to face each other to chat whilst on these. Trains are very frequent and often very crowded too - don’t expect to get a seat! So - be prepared to suffer a little discomfort to see the jewels of the stations themselves!
