The Moscow Metro Museum of Art: 10 Must-See Stations
There are few times one can claim having been on the subway all afternoon and loving it, but the Moscow Metro provides just that opportunity. While many cities boast famous public transport systems—New York’s subway, London’s underground, San Salvador’s chicken buses—few warrant hours of exploration. Moscow is different: Take one ride on the Metro, and you’ll find out that this network of railways can be so much more than point A to B drudgery.
The Metro began operating in 1935 with just thirteen stations, covering less than seven miles, but it has since grown into the world’s third busiest transit system ( Tokyo is first ), spanning about 200 miles and offering over 180 stops along the way. The construction of the Metro began under Joseph Stalin’s command, and being one of the USSR’s most ambitious building projects, the iron-fisted leader instructed designers to create a place full of svet (radiance) and svetloe budushchee (a radiant future), a palace for the people and a tribute to the Mother nation.
Consequently, the Metro is among the most memorable attractions in Moscow. The stations provide a unique collection of public art, comparable to anything the city’s galleries have to offer and providing a sense of the Soviet era, which is absent from the State National History Museum. Even better, touring the Metro delivers palpable, experiential moments, which many of us don’t get standing in front of painting or a case of coins.
Though tours are available , discovering the Moscow Metro on your own provides a much more comprehensive, truer experience, something much less sterile than following a guide. What better place is there to see the “real” Moscow than on mass transit: A few hours will expose you to characters and caricatures you’ll be hard-pressed to find dining near the Bolshoi Theater. You become part of the attraction, hear it in the screech of the train, feel it as hurried commuters brush by: The Metro sucks you beneath the city and churns you into the mix.
With the recommendations of our born-and-bred Muscovite students, my wife Emma and I have just taken a self-guided tour of what some locals consider the top ten stations of the Moscow Metro. What most satisfied me about our Metro tour was the sense of adventure . I loved following our route on the maps of the wagon walls as we circled the city, plotting out the course to the subsequent stops; having the weird sensation of being underground for nearly four hours; and discovering the next cavern of treasures, playing Indiana Jones for the afternoon, piecing together fragments of Russia’s mysterious history. It’s the ultimate interactive museum.
Top Ten Stations (In order of appearance)
Kievskaya Station went public in March of 1937, the rails between it and Park Kultury Station being the first to cross the Moscow River. Kievskaya is full of mosaics depicting aristocratic scenes of Russian life, with great cameo appearances by Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin. Each work has a Cyrillic title/explanation etched in the marble beneath it; however, if your Russian is rusty, you can just appreciate seeing familiar revolutionary dates like 1905 ( the Russian Revolution ) and 1917 ( the October Revolution ).
Mayakovskaya Station ranks in my top three most notable Metro stations. Mayakovskaya just feels right, done Art Deco but no sense of gaudiness or pretention. The arches are adorned with rounded chrome piping and create feeling of being in a jukebox, but the roof’s expansive mosaics of the sky are the real showstopper. Subjects cleverly range from looking up at a high jumper, workers atop a building, spires of Orthodox cathedrals, to nimble aircraft humming by, a fleet of prop planes spelling out CCCP in the bluest of skies.
Novoslobodskaya is the Metro’s unique stained glass station. Each column has its own distinctive panels of colorful glass, most of them with a floral theme, some of them capturing the odd sailor, musician, artist, gardener, or stenographer in action. The glass is framed in Art Deco metalwork, and there is the lovely aspect of discovering panels in the less frequented haunches of the hall (on the trackside, between the incoming staircases). Novosblod is, I’ve been told, the favorite amongst out-of-town visitors.
Komsomolskaya Station is one of palatial grandeur. It seems both magnificent and obligatory, like the presidential palace of a colonial city. The yellow ceiling has leafy, white concrete garland and a series of golden military mosaics accenting the tile mosaics of glorified Russian life. Switching lines here, the hallway has an Alice-in-Wonderland feel, impossibly long with decorative tile walls, culminating in a very old station left in a remarkable state of disrepair, offering a really tangible glimpse behind the palace walls.
Dostoevskaya is a tribute to the late, great hero of Russian literature . The station at first glance seems bare and unimpressive, a stark marble platform without a whiff of reassembled chips of tile. However, two columns have eerie stone inlay collages of scenes from Dostoevsky’s work, including The Idiot , The Brothers Karamazov , and Crime and Punishment. Then, standing at the center of the platform, the marble creates a kaleidoscope of reflections. At the entrance, there is a large, inlay portrait of the author.
Chkalovskaya does space Art Deco style (yet again). Chrome borders all. Passageways with curvy overhangs create the illusion of walking through the belly of a chic, new-age spacecraft. There are two (kos)mosaics, one at each end, with planetary subjects. Transferring here brings you above ground, where some rather elaborate metalwork is on display. By name similarity only, I’d expected Komsolskaya Station to deliver some kosmonaut décor; instead, it was Chkalovskaya that took us up to the space station.
Elektrozavodskaya is full of marble reliefs of workers, men and women, laboring through the different stages of industry. The superhuman figures are round with muscles, Hollywood fit, and seemingly undeterred by each Herculean task they respectively perform. The station is chocked with brass, from hammer and sickle light fixtures to beautiful, angular framework up the innards of the columns. The station’s art pieces are less clever or extravagant than others, but identifying the different stages of industry is entertaining.
Baumanskaya Station is the only stop that wasn’t suggested by the students. Pulling in, the network of statues was just too enticing: Out of half-circle depressions in the platform’s columns, the USSR’s proud and powerful labor force again flaunts its success. Pilots, blacksmiths, politicians, and artists have all congregated, posing amongst more Art Deco framing. At the far end, a massive Soviet flag dons the face of Lenin and banners for ’05, ’17, and ‘45. Standing in front of the flag, you can play with the echoing roof.
Ploshchad Revolutsii Station
Novokuznetskaya Station finishes off this tour, more or less, where it started: beautiful mosaics. This station recalls the skyward-facing pieces from Mayakovskaya (Station #2), only with a little larger pictures in a more cramped, very trafficked area. Due to a line of street lamps in the center of the platform, it has the atmosphere of a bustling market. The more inventive sky scenes include a man on a ladder, women picking fruit, and a tank-dozer being craned in. The station’s also has a handsome black-and-white stone mural.
Here is a map and a brief description of our route:
Start at (1)Kievskaya on the “ring line” (look for the squares at the bottom of the platform signs to help you navigate—the ring line is #5, brown line) and go north to Belorusskaya, make a quick switch to the Dark Green/#2 line, and go south one stop to (2)Mayakovskaya. Backtrack to the ring line—Brown/#5—and continue north, getting off at (3)Novosblodskaya and (4)Komsolskaya. At Komsolskaya Station, transfer to the Red/#1 line, go south for two stops to Chistye Prudy, and get on the Light Green/#10 line going north. Take a look at (5)Dostoevskaya Station on the northern segment of Light Green/#10 line then change directions and head south to (6)Chkalovskaya, which offers a transfer to the Dark Blue/#3 line, going west, away from the city center. Have a look (7)Elektroskaya Station before backtracking into the center of Moscow, stopping off at (8)Baumskaya, getting off the Dark Blue/#3 line at (9)Ploschad Revolyutsii. Change to the Dark Green/#2 line and go south one stop to see (10)Novokuznetskaya Station.

How to navigate the Moscow Metro – a brief guide
The Moscow Metro is considered one of the most beautiful in the world, and one of the largest, with 269 stations and counting! Still, no one is immune from standing flummoxed in the middle of the platform not knowing whether to go left or right, or which of six or more exits to take to escape the subterranean maze. Our guide sheds light on some of the finer points, and will definitely make your life in the subway easier.
These began to appear back in 2014, and are now visible at all the main interchange stations. Huge stickers with arrows on the floor show where you need to go to change line.
The lines are indicated by number and color, with the names written in Russian with English transliteration. For example, the number 7 in a purple circle means the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya line; it is the purple line on the Metro map.
The Moscow Metro has over 20 different types of signs, which all complement each other. So if you look at one and are still confused, try looking at another.
Metro signs answer the key question: “Which way should I go?”, and usually show the end station of the line and/or the general direction (northbound, southbound, to the city center, etc.). Some overhead signs show only the line number and the end station; such a scheme is also used in the Paris Metro.
There are also signs on the platform walls, which tend to be more detailed. They tell you which direction the train is headed and which stations it will stop at. The station you are currently at is marked with a rectangle in the color of the line, and all others are listed in order from top to bottom.
All sign information is duplicated in English: names of Metro stations in lobbies, on platforms, and in rail cars are all shown in Latin script. Stations in rail cars are also announced in two languages, Russian and English. And ticket windows with English-speaking staff are marked with the sticker “We speak English!”.
How to find the right exit
Many stations have several exits. One of the busiest central stations, Kitai Gorod, has no fewer than 15! But numbers, stands, and wall guides will help you out of the labyrinth without needing a ball of string.
Locals often use subway exits as geographical markers. For example, they might say “Let’s meet by the exit at Solyanka.” But for tourists this might not be very helpful. That said, maps showing the local area and main sights are available at exits (not all), or on round colorful stands in station lobbies and on platforms:
But since all exits are numbered, it’s best to be guided by the exit numbers.
There is often an overhead sign at exits listing the nearby sights, streets, shopping malls, and other reference points.
And on platform and lobby walls, you can see more stickers with bus, tram, and trolleybus numbers, showing the way to public transport stops.
The traditional meeting place in the Moscow Metro is v tsentre zala ("the platform center"). But recently, special stickers with the words Mesto vtrechi ("Meeting place") have appeared, making it easier to find one other.
Some stations have a stand with a Metro map in the center of the platform and by the ticket windows in the lobby. But these days, the best way to navigate the branchy subway system is via a mobile app. Armed with one, you can work out the fastest route from A to B, calculate the journey time, see all available transfers and ground transport stops, and get notifications about temporary closures of stations and exits, etc.

'Miles do not matter' to the thousands who descended on Washington, DC, in support of Palestinians: 'This is breathtaking, and it's amazing.'
- Tens of thousands of protesters gathered in DC on Saturday for a pro-Palestinian demonstration.
- Organizers said hundreds of buses brought people from across the country to the nation's capital.
- Insider spoke to people from as far as Georgia and Illinois who made the journey to the protest.
Aali had never been to a protest before he came to the pro-Palestine march in Washington, DC, on Saturday.
"This is good," Aali said at the demonstration. "If you can do something, you have to do it."
It was also Aali's first time traveling for a protest — he told Insider he took a bus from Pennsylvania to the nation's capital on Saturday morning.
"It was about a 2-hour bus ride," he said.
Aali, who asked Insider to withhold his last name due to privacy concerns, is just one of hundreds of people who traveled from outside the Washington, DC, metro area for the National March on Washington: Free Palestine demonstration organized by nine co-sponsoring activism groups.
"Hundreds of buses have been organized by local community groups and progressive organizations to bring activists and people of conscience from cities across the country to join the historic march," organizers said in a statement provided to Insider Saturday morning.
Organizers told Insider before the demonstration they were expecting 100,000 attendees and that they hoped it would be the largest pro-Palestinian demonstration in US history.
Watta, from Philadelphia, told Insider the distance she drove didn't matter, given how much the cause mattered to her.
"It's about two hours from Philadelphia, and I've never driven to DC before," Watta told Insider at the demonstration. "The farthest I can comfortably drive is an hour, but obviously the miles do not matter because I came here in solidarity with the Palestinian people."
Others came from the southern or Midwestern US.
Mary, from Chicago, told Insider the last time she traveled to a protest was 30 years ago.
"This is breathtaking, and it's amazing," Mary told Insider.
Others traveled in large groups by bus. Thejas Wesley, a member of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, told Insider he traveled with 750 people across 14 buses from Boston.
K.B. Butler said she and 200 others from Atlanta boarded a bus at 8 p.m. on Friday to make it in time for the demonstration.
"There are so many people at this protest who are out on the streets for the first time, as well as people who are learning about what's happening in Palestine for the first time," Butler told Insider.
Hundreds of thousands of people are rallying across the world in support of Palestine
Saturday's protesters joined the hundreds of thousands of people around the world who have marched in pro-Palestine rallies in the last several days.
Massive protests swept London, Istanbul, San Francisco, and Los Angeles last weekend after the Israel Defense Forces launched its ground operation in Gaza.
Hamas militants killed more than 1,400 people and kidnapped an estimated 100 to 200 people in a series of terrorist attacks in southern Israel on October 7.
In response, Israel launched punishing air strikes and a ground offensive in the densely populated Gaza Strip, which is home to about 2 million people, nearly one million of them children.
The Hamas-led Palestinian Health Ministry said that the death toll in Gaza is nearing 10,000 people. The Ministry said Saturday at least 3,900 thousands of those fatalities have been children.
The median age in Gaza is 18 .
The Palestinian Health Ministry released a list containing the names, ID numbers, and ages of every person killed by Israeli airstrikes, Insider previously reported , after President Joe Biden publicly doubted the accuracy of their casualty statistics.
Insider is unable to verify the list, but it has been endorsed by officials from the United Nations and the World Health Organization .
As they marched toward the White House, protesters carried a banner that listed the names of the nearly 10,000 people the health ministry listed in their death tolls.
"This is a political awakening for many, many people," Butler said.

I'm a solo traveler in my 20s. My first guided group trip was filled with surprises, and I was the youngest one there by decades.
- I'm a solo traveler in my 20s who spent a week traveling around Morocco on a guided tour.
- Although I was the youngest traveler by a few decades, I enjoyed bonding with the other tourists.
- Guided tours are a great, affordable introduction to the world of independent travel.
As a 23-year-old solo traveler, I'm used to a particular way of traveling. Most of my nights are spent in hostels with people my age.
But earlier this year, feeling exhausted and fulfilled after a solo trip in Jordan, I longed for some relief from the constant stress of traveling alone as a woman . So I decided to spend my next trip traveling around Morocco on a budget bus tour with 30 other tourists, most of whom were retirees , for a week.
Instead of hostels, I would be arriving at a four-star, sleek hotel for my first night in Rabat. Plus, I would no longer be alone.
For just over $832, the eight-day "Classic Morocco" tour took us from Rabat to places like Fès, Marrakech, and Casablanca.
At first, I was embarrassed to admit that I was part of a tour group
Every tour group member had a big, swinging audio transceiver and earbuds around their neck, astutely listening to our tour guide, who spoke into his own little headset.
We all wore big lanyards with the tour company's logo on them. I was mortified.
The first few days of my trip, I tried to shrink into the mass of tourists the best I could, fearful that I would be grouped with the likes of "people who book bus tours."
Being young and an experienced traveler , I tend to rebuke these types of tours. But I eventually got over all of that.
It was nice to have the itinerary planned for me, but I did miss the freedom that comes with solo travel
This style of sightseeing was not conducive to slow travel , nor was it a way to travel deeply in one place or gain a complex understanding of the culture.
But on my trip through Morocco, the day-to-day itinerary felt full. It was a lovely surprise to be able to completely relax and let go of the logistics. Without the stress of getting lost or missing public transport , I was able to focus on the historical and cultural facts that the guide prepared.
Navigating the traditional markets of Morocco (known as souks) was made easier with our tour group, but where we shopped and wandered was limited.
Like any big tour, we had to make our planned stops. The autonomy of wandering was lost, and sometimes, I felt we were herded into a carpet or tannery shop for far too long.
I also found I loved bonding with the other tourists
Through the staged theater of it all, I found a sense of solidarity and humor with other guests.
It quickly became clear that I was the youngest person on my tour, beating most people by decades. I was also the only solo traveler on the trip.
However, the tour group provided a built-in social network, which can be a relief when coming off of extended travel or solo adventuring. As a 23-year-old, bonding and traveling with retirees was an entirely different experience.
The evenings were slow, and meals were quiet but often filled with insightful conversations (and sometimes disagreements) about current affairs and generational outlooks.
My "best friends" on the trip were a man in his early 80s and his wife, both happily enjoying their retirement. Another couple in retirement gleefully showed me videos of their daughter, who was a talented hobbyist pole dancer. I truly never knew what stories I was going to get.
Overall, the guided tour was a great way to learn more about Morocco
The guided tour offered an affordable way to get a taste of a new country.
For a young person and/or solo traveler, a guided tour is a great introduction to pseudo-independent traveling and can serve as a great in-between before you go off and explore a country alone .
I suggest taking one of these tours, especially if you have time to extend your stay in the region to get a deeper feel for the culture. To get the most out of the experience, be sure to book with a company that hires local guides.
If you're thinking of traveling to Morocco, it's important to keep in mind that a lot has changed since my group trip in January. In September, Morocco faced the most devastating earthquake the country has seen in over 60 years.
Because the country is still recovering, I'd advise prospective travelers to extensively research how tourism in certain recovering areas was impacted, as well as the impacts on local capacity.
