....... ok probably not the best place for a family holiday :oThe Moscow subway system is actually huge and very complex and wide-reaching (the only reason it gets so packed is because the population of Moscow is about 13 million people - many of whom can't afford cars).
But if you're going to go on it and you don't speak Russian, yeah, best of luck - there are no signs in English, only Russian. :lol:

But Russia is a great place for a family vacation! Just from the photos posted you can see that! It's just best to do it with a tour group. :lol:

The map is a bit old because the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line (dark blue) has been extended to Park Pobedy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Park_Pobedy)

It's a :worship: station

I really want to go to Russia one day ... in the summer, of course. I would get to practice my Russian, and maybe meet a hot Russian guy. :drool: :hearts:

It looks like a really beautiful place. The subway pictures and traffic jams show that there is insufficient urban infrastructure, but I'm sure that will change in the future as Russia's economy improves.

:hearts: Russia :hearts:

okay minus that subway thing, russia looks so gorgeous.

nyc's subways are bad during rush hours, but i don't think i've ever experienced something that bad.

OMFG :eek:

That guy with the gun...I'm guessing he's a military guard of some sort doing a routine check for bombs or terrorists, or he's just an everyday Moscovite carrying a toy that could get him into a lot of trouble :scared:

And what's up with the traffic? Did the lights die down that particular day or something? It's unlikely the infrastructure there's the problem because the lanes are so wide, but you'd imagine the problem would've been fixed by nightfall.

Moscow Chokes on Growing Traffic Problems

Morning Edition (http://www.npr.org/templates/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId=3), November 28, 2006 · There used to be a limited number of cars in the former Soviet Union. But now that Moscow is reaping windfall profits from high oil prices, the Russian capital is now overwhelmed with traffic. And conditions are only expected to get deteriorate.
