Moscow metro deserves all the praise it gets from tourists. Just avoid rush hours (8-10 am, 5-7 pm). Many visitors complain about lack of English, it is now being fixed, there are 3 lines (# 5, 7 and 14) with announcements in English, floor signs in English and by 2018 Fifa World Cup the whole system will get a brand...

Easy to navigate yourself around the circle of beautiful metro stations...with stained glass, statues, mosaics... If yo wanted to know the history you would need a guide, but just to them for yourself is a treat on a rainy day.

Used the Metro extensively while on a week long trip to Moscow. Of all the metros I have used, have to say this one rates up there with the best - better than NYC, on a par with Paris/London. First - the cost is decent - 50 rub per ride. Trains are quick and efficient, and move every minute or... More

The Most elegant Underground Metro Stations in the World. Every station is a Museum in itself. Don't waste this opportunity to visit "Soviet Era Russia" by renting a car, or using Uber.

Stunning decor but the ticketing system is confusing and the messages on the barriers only appear in Russian. This meant the barriers closed around my body on one occasion - rather painful. The ticketing information needs displaying in English in the stations as the ladies behind the counters never speak a word of English.

The Moscow Metro opened in 1935 its only line with 13 stations. The total length was less than 7 miles. Today, in 2016, the subway system connects all points of the megacity. There are 200 stations with an interconnected web over 200 miles long. There are fabulous examples of Russian and Soviet art. The Kievskaya station portrays famous writers, poets... More

The Metro serves most parts of the city with very good frequency of 3min apart service. The carriages are clean and the train moves pretty fast. The beautiful underground stations are the topping on the cake.

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.
