Well in fact, maybe this tip could also be placed under the Chapter Must See tips.

But of course it is very handy to use the Metro system, but you should also take some time to look around as some of these Metro stations are real pearls of architecture.

They used the best architects and artists to design these stations. They used all kind of materials like marble, granite. These Metro stations are decorated with statues, mosaics and chandeliers.

Some of the most beautiful stations are Avtovo with its pillars, and Kirovski Zavod, which looks like a basilica.

Be careful when you want to make a picture in the Metro, do it quickly and without using your flash, as it is not allowed.

See picture as this Metro station was decorated with Roman signs (Metro station: Ploshchad Vosstanija)
