Riding the city's underground subway system is a sightseeing tour in itself with huge, vaulted, marble-columned stations - some with ornate mosaics and splendid stained glass - designed and decorated by famous Russian architects and sculptors.

I don't speak Russian so it was a little difficult to go around the metro but I did it. It's worth it to see it. They are a masterpiece each of them.

A really fantastic subway! Beautiful, cheap & fast. Circle line is great for "station hopping", a train comes along every 2-3 minutes. Just long enough to walk the station, admire the art & decor and then jump on the next train to the next station!
