First of all, the security is good when you want to go in to the metro system. Within 3 minutes the metro's arrive and the signs are verry clear. You don't have to get lost. Super experience

Russian's pride for sure. The metros became exceedingly beautiful as we progressed on the tour. It was planned that way to save the best for last:) Our guide Alisa was excellent. This was part of the Catherine Palace with Public Transport Private tour. Highly recommended....More

Wow is the word. There are two particular things which stands out. One being the mosaics in all the stations, with different designs and theme and the other one is how deep the stations are!

The depth and quality of these build is a sight to behold. The metros are beautiful with art galore, massive tunnels, the biggest escalators I’ve ever seen. As Willy Wonka once said: “all aboard”

If you want to see how a well run subway works, this is a great example; have not been in Moscow, which I understand has even a better one but this close to perfect. Easy to figure out and less than 40 cents to ride.

Get a Metro Tour, it is one of the cheapest and the guide would tell you all about the history of the art/stations, that is priceless!
