I would love to visit Moscow one day and ride the subway. Is it relatively safe?

As safe as millions of ppl use it every day. Im always so surprised by this kind of questions. I really dont want to ofend or attack anybody, coz it's not my goal, but sometimes ppl from the so called 'modern' west are so ignorant and so narrow minded. It must be the propaganda to tell ppl that outside from western Europe and States the world is impossible to live in, where the wild animals walk along the streets attacking citizens, who lives in caves without electricity and running water.
Of course you can get robbed in Moscow metro, as you can be killed in Bruxelles metro station! Guys, now it looks like the east is safer than the west.

@Beccaaa
Get the ticket to Moscow and experience it by yourself. Don't be scared, just be carefull as you are in any other big citiy.
You will have fun, coz its metro is probably the most beautifull in the world.

Why do so many stations in Russia have the name Prospect? What does it mean?

Улица = ulitsa = street
Проспект = prospect = avenue
Площадь = ploshchad' = square
Бульвар = bul'var = boulevard
Парк = park = park

Many stations have names ended on '-skaya' (-ская) (feminine) or '-skiy'/'-skoy' (-ский/-ской) (masculine). This means like 'something of subject'. Tverskaya = Tver [station]. Dostoyevskaya = Dostoyevskiy [station]. (station - this word is feminine in Russian). Leninskiy prospect = Lenin avenue.

Another common ending is '-o' (Yasenevo, Mitino, etc.), quite popular in the names of the stations far away from city center. This is very simple - the ending '-o' is very popular for the names of the villages in Russia. You may notice that the most of Russian airports have '-o' ending in their names since they all have named by the nearby villages.

You've forgotten шоссе = shosse = highway/drive

Lemon-osprey Prospect! Lemon-osprey Prospect!

So, what are the odds of Lemon-flavored osprey again? Can we make this the running joke of the thread?

But, really. Thank you very much for these informative lessons. I really appreciate it.

A quick clarification: Tverskaya means Station of Tver?

Silent reader here. Please don't make a joke of one's language that sounds funny in your own language. About the last question, it's correct, although I prefer to translate it as just "Tver station", as "Paddington station" instead of "station of Paddington".

PS: Just adding a little explanation here to KVentz's post. In Russia, all the name of the station is in adjective form. It is why it has such endings, and it agrees to the noun which they belong to. Station (станция, stantsiya) is female (it ends with -ya or -a), train station (вокзал, vokzal) is male (it ends with consonant), while neuter nouns ends with either -o, -e, or -mya form. This rule is mostly correct, but there are words that don't agree to this rule

It is named for the street Tverskaya. This street is located in the direction of Tver. Streets are called participles. Tverskaya Street - so it pertains to Tver.
