You'll be amazed by these stations. Coming from New York it is impossible to compare, "first world (Moscow subway) vs 3rd world (New York).

The Moscow subway construction is not only transport and utilitarian, but also artistic and architectural. Each station is unique. In the turmoil of travel, do not miss the chance to appreciate this beauty.

Beautiful and great architecture. Clean (but sometimes homeless people inside smell bad). Quite safely. English-language navigation. People ready to help, especially to foreigners.

Moscow Metro is highly effective mass-transportation system with very good coverage of the city. The trains are mostly modern, arrived frequently. The stations are well decorated, some timed over-decorated. You could confuse it with some museum.

Luzhniki stadium and aqua complex, and long and

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
