I was ever so impressed with the Metro, we went to multiple stations and each one was so very different, clean, orderly and on-time, not to be missed

The Moscow Subway is an underground art museum. The Moscow subway actually has chandeliers! Coming from New York City, it is other-worldly. Clean, safe and very affordable. An efficient and enjoyable way to get around.

Who would think subway stations can be so beautiful? Unbelievable architecture craftsmanship and designs. I wish modern day development will use the old artistic designs. Train services are great as well. Definitely worth a trip through few stations to see the architecture.

It's of the 4 floor down metro station . The difficulty is nobody speaks English and nothing has been written in English . You need to see travel guide metro translated in English and then refer to see where you want to go .
