I took a tour with a fun young tour guide that showed me all the most famous metro stops. The entire tour took about 90 minutes and was so interesting. The metro stops were built to be the 'People's Palaces' as Lenin said and they are something to see. Each stop is ornate and clean and filled with history. The... More

Each station is unique, sometimes basic and simple sometimes luxurious. For the very nice one you regret the size of it, but after all it's all driven by length of the underground wagon convoy.

My biggest revelation happened watching the bronze scultptures at Revolution Square. Almost 50% female representation, and equal in importance and degree of clothing. A female and male student, farmer, parent, hunter, in pairs showing equal importance. A male sailor next to a female paratrooper. I realized how hard is is in most of Europe to find any public sculptures of... More

The Moscow Metro is very easy to navigate --- even if you don't read Russian, if you just bring a map with you and pay attention to the stops you'll have no difficulty. If you have time, I'd recommend just riding the train and getting off at various stops just to see the amazingly beautiful depots. They are unlike anything... More

I never miss the opportunity to see more stations. It's a must see if you visiting Moscow. Although the station names are all in Russian. Each line is colored and numbered. It's cheap and efficient and safe. Cost about 50pence per ride. Just go to ticket office. Say 1, 2,3,4 fingers to buy each journey I recommend you take the... More

The first day when we arrived at Moscow metro, we felt really intimidated by the lack of English words. After the first ride, we felt that the language barrier did make understanding the capital a little harder, it actually brought us to a new level of learning. I was wrong to assume that the map I printed online is sufficient.... More

It's a pretty magnificent place to see. I'm from NY and the subways are a gutter compared to this. It's known for its famed chandeliers and marble floors and its efficiency. Definitely worth the visit.

Very well functioning metro. Easy to get around and takes no time. It's an amazing metro, and beautiful decorations. But would be a big plus if they had more English signs for tourists.

After the fashion of some other reviews I will venture to sort out the pros and cons of visiting the Moscow Metro based on my own expirience. I live a short way from our capital so I've been there many a time. Pros: 1. Every station has its own absolutely astounding architecture and design that reflect the era it was... More

Staying in Tverskaya

Neighbourhood Profile
Tverskaya
Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long street populated with well-known shops and brands. But it’s more than shopping that makes this place interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy European pedestrian streets Bolshaya Dmitrovka or Stoleshnikov lane are a great place to start. Locals can be found here working, eating, shopping, resting and going to the Bolshoi Theatre in the evening.
