Many of Moscow’s metro stations are architectural gems and well worth visiting. It is essential to realise that the metro is a very busy, vital and continuous element of Moscow’s transport system. Most central stations are very crowded. The platform concourses are often architecturally fabulous, but the elevators and passages to and between them are often dirty and congested, as with any Underground system. Many of these seemed to be lined with corrugated metal sheets and are often narrow and packed with travellers! Quite a few subways are lined with small shops which are worth looking in for bargains. Elevators are often very crowded and go very deep - interesting to see that it is common for folk to face each other to chat whilst on these. Trains are very frequent and often very crowded too - don’t expect to get a seat! So - be prepared to suffer a little discomfort to see the jewels of the stations themselves!
