Very useful, like in most cities. However, it really helps if you speak Russian or can at least decipher the Cyrillic. Just saying.

It is always an adventure riding the Metro. Will you get one of the specially decorated trains, will you get a seat and sometimes the chance to hear some locals selling things or looking for charity. Definitely the fastest way to travel and some of the stations are architecturally stunning with mosaics and frescos worthy of a place in an... More

This was one of the best things I did in Moscow. The metro is cheap to ride, like 50 rubles, and you can ride as long as you want and stop at all of the unique stations. They are all so different and incredibly beautiful. There was obviously a lot of money used in the building of these stations and... More

Never seen such care to the interior of underground stations. And so efficient with trains every 2 minutes. Therefore even when busy, no one needs to push and rush

Taking the metro in Moscow gives you not only the possibility to move fast around in different places of the city, it gives you also an inside view of the monumental sovjet culture, deep down, 100 meters below. A must.

Really interesting Metro system. The trains are old, as are the Metro stations but the stations have class, the trains less so. Great architecture, lighting and brass figures. Easy and safe to get around although impossible in a wheel chair or with walking disabilities. Fast, regular and on time trains. Clean and at times busy Metro stations. Best to work... More

Being from Toronto there is no comparison to this Metro and the TTC. This one is faster, cleaner, cheaper and much better run. Highly recommended especially when the traffic is very bad.

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.
