the most beautiful metro system ever, metro stations are amazing and there is lots of history to see there. the metro itself works perfectly and its not hard to use once you get around once or twice. the tour takes you to many beautiful stations but it is good just to go around and check them out.

Coming from Paris, with its often dirty and narrow corridors, stained walls, and гermanent garbage decor, you are amazed by the design of several Moscow underground stations !!! Marble, elegant lights, sculptures, architecture.... Not forgetting the legends, in some of the stations, like some sculptures, eroded by the rubbing of thousands of feminine hands, hoping to get a magic "kick",... More

Moscow metro one of oldest metro and one of most deep below the ground. In Moscow do not miss metro. There are stations which are piece of art by itself. They will even put 5 star hotel lobbys to shame. There are separate Moscow metro tours which are available locally or you can book online. Also if you are adventure... More

I'm from just outside of London, so quite familiar with Subways, but Moscow's subways blow every single other city in the world out the water. They are just absolutely stunning, and designed down to the very last detail. I wish I went on the Subway tour !

If you visit the Moscow you should go underground. The central stations looks like piece of art. Expecially I recommend Ploshad Revolucii station. Dark-blue line, just under the Kremlin. Kievskaya, Belorusskaya, Mayakovskaya are also the great. It is also the best way to travel in Moscow. The frequncy of coming trains - normal 2 min, in a rush hour about... More

Once you get the hang of it, and it's really no different to the London underground really, the metro is a good way to get to places further afield and is good value for money. Some lines even announce in English if you're lucky. Quite a few of the stations are really beautiful. It's worth looking them up in a... More

All of the main metro stops within central Moscow tell a story. My last visit I was in Киевская station and I was marvelling at all of the paintings of production from the Ukraine - wheat, potatoes, grains, vegetables, fruits. A utopia to be sure. Let's see what the next style of management creates in this region. This station is... More

Get metro guide with both English and Russian letters for station names. Easier to figure out direction you need having both. Buy say a 20 pass card, you can use the same card for >1 person by scanning consecutive times for number or people travelling. Clean (spotless), safe (always police at least during Christmas holidays). Stations are beautiful. Rather than... 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.
