Moscow metro is not a must see, its a must do. Literally. I've been many times in Moscow, but the first time I took a train alone, I got lost and enjoyed it fully. I found myself in a public, underground, rich and noisy gallery and it was an amazing feeling. Ever since, I get lost on purpose, whenever I... More

being from the east coast of usa i figured a subway was just trains and track. when i wne into the moscow system and saw all the fancy wall and expecially all the art work i was very impressed. the system moves thousands of people a day. the cars are a bit antiquated but are extremely effective and on time....

more than 200 stations, and some of them are gorgeous. You need to put your head up in order to see everything. Very interesting period, as nostly built in the 30's and 40's.

If you get chance to take a tour ( normally 1-1:5 hrs) go for it. Beautiful with lot of history. You won't see same anywhere else. Easy access, lots of impressive sights.

Communism rules because they knew how to make a dope train station. You will have so much fun and people are all smiling.

Very appropriate way of transportation in Moscow, clean and easy to orient yourself as a tourist if you get a metro map. You can pay with credit card. People are always ready to help you in case you need direction

If you are a tourist and want to have a very unique experience be sure to ride the metro. The metros in Russia are maintained very well. They are also very deep in the ground. The Russian metro systems are so much better than NYC, San Francisco, Boston, etc. Be sure not to miss this.

The Moscow Metro is one of the oldest underground train systems in the world. It is fast, efficient, inexpensive, and easy to negotiate. You can buy single trip tokens or a multi-trip card. In July, a 20 trip card cost 650 roubles. A trip lasts from when you enter the system to when you leave it so if you want... More

Various metro stations are attractions in themselves. Bronze sculptures, marble columns, mosaics, chandeliers are only a few of the sights. It is almost like visiting a museum, you have to remind yourself you are here for transportation. Metro travel itself is fast and efficient. A must see!

Thank Jean B

Staying in Tverskaya

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
