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.

An interesting evening exploring several stops on the Metro, and you only pay once. This has to be one of the most beautiful subway systems in the world, decorated with mosaics, stained glass, and bronze statues.

Each Station has a story to tell. We took a guide and moved around from station to station. There is a flat rate entrance fee to get into the Metro and after that you can travel anywhere. Some of the Decor is remarkable and all...More

Well, yes, it is fast, goes every 2 min, but it is not turistic attraction. It stinks inside, it's old stuffy and dirty. You can go and see some chosen stations, but after 2-3 you have already enough of being there. I recommend to use...More

Many of the stations are unique & beautiful. More like a small palace than a station. If you are short of time take a trip on the inner circle line getting on & off various stations. Komsomolskaya, Prospekt Mira & Novoslobodskaya are recommended stops. Also...More

Trubetskikh Estate, great sport locations such as
Luzhniki stadium and aqua complex, and long and

Hi there, they do announce the stops in English. It's very easy to follow the underground map though. Just like any other city in the world. When you are in the train, it highlights what stop you are at and which direction... More

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
