It's a sheer pleasure to visit the metro stations. Unfortunately we did not have time to visit all of them, but to mention just a few: Arbatskaya, Revolution, and Kiev metro stations were very beautiful.

If you come to Paris, you have to visit the Eiffel Tower. When you travel to Moscow, you MUST visit the local subway! There's no need to travel all over the Metro - just come and see the Ploschad Revolutsii (Revolution Square) Station. This is the most beautiful subway station all over the World! You'll be impressed by the monuments... More

Every station of Moscow metro has its unique design! Everywhere is clean and comfortable with benches, magazine counters and cold and hot drinks stands. Some trains are very beautifully designed with different teams. Wifi is available inside the train. I love traveling in Moscow metro

Was fun take the metro with my kids looking for treasures ( the metro) Even using the... More

Amazing experience, more than just a regular metro, Moscow Metro has 195 stations and its route length is 325.4 km (202.2 mi). This metro is called the most beautiful in the world – 44 of the nearly 200 stations are listed as cultural heritage sites. Compared to many other metros around the world this has been my favorite and great... More

Fast and cheap metro. Orientation is a little difficult for non russian reading. The metro is a good choice for moving around the city.

Metro in Moscow - one of the most unique in the world. Very deep underground. You feel almost exhausted going down very long way. Extremely many people there. Absolutely crowdy and all possible nationalities there. This is no place to be polite, people are in hurry and really selfish. Be careful keeping wallet with you. Keep your children nearby. Still...

The metro is amazing, it's like a museum with all the statues, mosaics, and marble. Do spend an afternoon there visiting the main station (most of them are on Koltsevaya Line). A few tips: the names of metro stations in Russian are long and can be confusing. But they are marked by numbers and colours too, so it's not hard... More

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.
