You can either do this with tour group, I did it on my own. The most beautiful metro can be seen on the brown line, line5. Paveletskaya, taganskaya, komsomolskaya, prospect Mira, novoslobodskaya, belorusskaya, and mayakovskaya on green line and ploschad Revolyuttij on blue line.

Once you enter the system, you can travel to all of the stations on the same fare (less than $1). Just keep in mind that there are a lot of stations in the system and it will take more than a day to see all of the... More
