OK, here is the map of Moscow subway of my own. It's not a masterpiece of course, i've made it several weeks ago for myself in kinda
London tube style cause i think it's a bit more handy and simple than that of Moscow Metro. Currently i'm workin on another map which
would be more detailed, accurate, and with railway lines on it.

I have a feeling that even if the Metro was the only thing to see in Moscow it would be worth a visit. I really hope I can get a chance to see this city one day.

As I see now there is a huge difference between The Moscow metro and other metros and subways in the world.

There are almost no those boring advertisements on the walls as is the case in other countries.But there is another thing. To say the truth, if Moscw metro administration allowed much space for advertising in its stations, it would bring a bigger revenue for them. With a bigger revenue they would be able to modernise its rolling stock at a quicker pace.

Historic stations are not compatible with advertisement. There are about 55-60 such stations out of >170 total. The rest have some advertisement, as well as the escalator shafts. There are also ads inside trains. Just browse the thread. You can see ads in one of the pics above too.

I am not particularly happy about this one:

This seems to be an advertisement of travel agency. If it's the EU tour - there is nothing strange.

The photos, especially those by Timurdva, are awesome. They remind me of one of the main reasons I love metros so much. For something so covered and deep underground, they are truly full of life.

So, a burning question. Does the Moscow secret subway really exist?

Well, if anyone (besides the ex-Soviet leaders who built and maybe used it) knew, it wouldn't be secret anymore, right?

I am sure there is some secret undeground network, but we do not know much precisely because it is secret


if you can read in Russian:

http://metro.molot.ru/fact_metro2.shtml

http://www.metro.ru/metro2/

if not, bottom line: secret network of tunnels and bunkers exists, but it is not metro in conventional sense

There are rumors that the Washington DC Metro also has secret tunnels.

What do you mean not in the conventional sense? Because people don't travel on it, or because it uses a different gauge?

The Russians have really great metro systems! I visited there once, and both Moscow and St. Petersburg Metro are so spectacular! The systems were fast, cheap, and very reliable! But it was really crowded in peak times, especially in Moscow. (I forgot about the old Chicago 'L')
