We visited the Moscow metros, the design and architecture is amazing. The number of people that use the metro is greater than NY and London combined. It is fast, efficient and cheap.

Visited three of the fancy Metro stations in Moscow. Very interesting and well worth the visit. Was a little intimidated at first, but found the system very easy to navigate and the stations very interesting. Very different décor in each station. These are the palaces of the people!

We were taken to see some stations as part of a Moscow tour. The best stations to view are those on the circle line, built in the 1950's in the Stalin era. You only need one ticket and can get on and off as many stations as you like. We started in the north at Novoslobodskaya and went anti-clockwise getting... More

It was worth taking a few rides on the metro. The metro is clean, and many of the stations have beautiful art.

Unique to Moscow are these metro stations which are beautifully decorated with various themes. Novoslobodskaya, Mayakovskaya, Elektrozavodskaya, Shosse Entuziastov, Nakhimovsky Prospekt, Park Pobedy, Ploshchad Revolyutsii, Victory Park, Prospekt Mira, Kievskaya, Komsomolskaya are particularly noteworthy. A quality camera and sufficient time is a must.

Travelled a few stops on this amazing underground rail system. On the face of it the trains a similar to London, but only stop for 1 min to unload / load. Hence "bistro" - quickly. However the amazing decor is the greatest difference. Often called Stalins Underground Palaces, the are filled with bronze statues and paintings designed to raise national... More

Staying in Khamovniki

Neighbourhood Profile
Khamovniki could be considered a city of its own – here it’s possible to find some of Moscow’s most important cultural institutions such as the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the Novodevichy Convent and Trubetskikh Estate, great sport locations such as Luzhniki stadium and aqua complex, and long and beautiful Luzhniki embankment. Pick your preferred form of transport to explore the area – bicycle or river cruise during the summer and taxi in winter as many of the great places are situated beyond a short walk.
