Moscow Russia Tourist Information and Travel Guide
The Moscow Metro System or simply "Metro" provides an inexpensive and fast way to get around the Moscow metropolitan area.
More than nine different metro lines transport Muscovites between some 150 metro stations. The fare is the same, regardless of the distance you travel.
Metro stations are architecturally attractive and truly elegant, featuring beautiful chandeliers and paintings. The stations were designed by prominent Russian architects, artists and sculptors.
The first subway line was opened in 1935. The system is heavily subsidized so travel is extremely inexpensive.
