Once in the city you can easily explore the central area on foot. As for the attractions outside of the historic centre, we recommend using the official website Public transport in Moscow.
Don’t be discouraged by the difficulty of the language with different characters, as the underground is actually very easy to use. There are 12 lines with 200 stations, and you can reach almost all the places of interest in the city.
The architectural beauty of some of Moscow’s stations are a tourist attraction in themselves. Most of the lines are open from early in the morning until one in the morning (operating around as many as 20 hours per day). There are different types of tickets, (e.g. single, two journeys, 20, 40 and 60 journeys), or you can buy the Troika Card which allows unlimited travel on all public transport. The city also has a network of buses, trams and trolleybuses, although they are quite outdated and of little interest to tourists, especially since they mainly go to destinations on the outskirts of the city. In front of you Moscow’s airports, you will find public taxis, which are usually yellow and with bright writing on their roofs. There are usually cars available because they are large airports, although their availability may vary according to the time of day, day of the week, current demand, and traffic conditions. It is often worth booking a private taxi just for convenience alone.
Taking a public taxi usually involves long waiting times for passengers, as well as exorbitant costs.
