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.

Efficient, cheap, with quite a few archaic trains but the most beautiful subway stations, each different in style

Travel on the Moscow Metro and see some of the most detailed metro stations in the world. Go later in the evening so you can pause to look at the ceilings without getting trampled by commuters.

Not sure what to expect from a subway in Moscow but this was super clean, and architecturally beautiful.

Khamovniki could be considered a city of its own –
here it’s possible to find some of Moscow’s most
important cultural institutions such as the Pushkin
State Museum of Fine Arts, the Novodevichy Convent and
Trubetskikh Estate, great sport locations such as
Luzhniki stadium and aqua complex, and long and
beautiful Luzhniki embankment. Pick your preferred

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
