The Moscow Metro recently celebrated its 60th anniversary: on May 15, 1935, a regular traffic was opened on the first metro line in Moscow. And now, by the end of the twentieth century, it is difficult for us to imagine how the capital could live without a subway. The Moscow metro is the pride and beauty of the capital.

While the train is moving, the announcer announces a stop, a transfer to another line, the name of the next station. So, if you purchased a scheme of metro lines and know the Russian language, you easily navigate in the Moscow metro.
