What a beautiful subway system - a true work of art. If I lived in Moscow, I would love to use the subway every day. Is it expensive to use?

It kind of reminds me of the London Underground in some ways, especially the escaltors and the 'tube' like stations.

You must be so proud of your metro, for sure!

I am old enough to not be proud of things I have not done myself. But I do identify with people who have right to be proud of it.

It is not expensive - it is affordable so that everybody can take it. Depending on how you purchase tickets or passes, it will cost from 19 roubles (76 cents) a ride to 8.6 roubles (34 cents) a ride (70 rides pass). Or you can buy a monthly pass for metro/ bus/ trolley bus/ tram for 1300 roubles, including no more than 70 metro rides.

For students it is really cheap - 180 roubles a month ($7.2).

And to make it dirt cheap - there are unlimited ride passes
30 days - 860 roubles ($34.4)
90 days - 1780 roubles ($71.2)
365 days - 6000 rouble ($240)

http://www.mosmetro.ru/pages/page_0.php?id_page=87

Retired Muscovites ride free.

If it looks too cheap - factor in that local prices and income levels are different from London.

In terms of dollar value it has been going up for years (inflation of rouble plus falling dollar), but it does not affect the ability of locals to ride as inclomes have been keeping up with inflation.

The bottom line is that the prices are not restrictive as they have been in China for instance, where many people cannot afford to ride subway. Riding metro in Moscow is almost like breathing, except that you do not have to periodically buy a pass to breath.

Slavyansky bul'var. Late august 2008.

Unfortunately it was decided to remove those green trees and black information signs.
Signs were already removed and this is the last time you see green trees.

well it's a newest one. and as always a center of attraction... this is an only station opened this year. next two stations on line 10 (LDL) will be opened in september 2009, so it will be a single thread about whole new section.
