Moscow’s Metro: A Living Museum


Moscow Metro is part of the Quest Around the Globe Trip Report.

If you know TPOL, you know I don’t care to visit museums. As an eternal optimist, I think of it as something to do when I’m old and fragile. If you know TPOL, you know that I enjoy visiting living museums like the Cu Chi Tunnel in Vietnam. Another tunnel of great significance and great beauty is Moscow’s metro system. Shanghai’s metro is clean and efficient, New York‘s is full of rats, Prague has the longest escalator, while Moscow’s is alive with both people and art. I spent an afternoon going from one famous stop to another.

What other museum costs $0.65 to visit?

Can NY put up signs of its stops?
Great for practicing your Russian
