Owner description: 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.

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!

The metro stations are so ample. Although it is crowded you don't feel claustrophobic. The stations look like museums full of history, you can spend a good half day going through them, it's difficult to choose only one. They are mainly in line 5 known as circle line.

There are taxis and uber in Moscow and it is not expensive but the Metro Stations are amazing, it is not that hard to get around, it is in Russian but if you have an app like Yandex or you have the stations in writing it is relatively easy. Some Stations are beautiful so its totally worth it.

You can't leave Moscow with out touring the main metro stations. They are beautiful, grand and very different from each other. Watch out for pick pockets.
