One of the many things in Moscow that bestow pride on all Muscovites is the metro.
The metro system is the cheapest and most reliable way to get to anywhere in the city. Also known as the ‘underground palace’, it is built from basil and marble and features mosaics, sculptures and glass paintings, which are a must see for everyone who visits Moscow.
Carrying up to eight million people every day - more than New York and London put together - this system is one of the world's marvels of inner city transport. This is more than just a railway - it's a time mashine. Ride the metro and you are back to the USSR. Stalin built this underground as a temple of communism. And the Soviet symbols still remain.
You'll visit a dozen of the best soviet period's stations and a few modern ones built over the last 20 years with our moscow private guide.
