It is easy to use it, although there are no signs in English. There are just 4 lines. Metro entrances are marked with a blue letter "M" on top. The metro is opened from 5.45 a.m. to 0.15 a.m. Usually the last train in the line starts its way at 0.00 and the passes between the stations are closed at 0.15 am. When there're rush hours 8.00-9.00, 17.00-19.00 the metro is overcrowded so it's better to avoid it.
There are metro schemes only in russian in every car, sometimes there are schemes at the stations.It might be useful to print out our metro scheme or to buy it somewhere. When you're on the station and want tofind out the direction you need just look up there're signs hanging on the ceiling - signs are in russian too -a list of stations in every direction. If you need to find a way out of the metro also look up to see where theexit to the city is ("Exit to the city) and to which street (ulitsa). If you need to find a pass to another station, also look up for ("Passage") signs. Tickets. The metro has no special zones - all metro is one zone, and there'sno time limit for using your ticket. So you can buy a ticket or a coin ("zheton") for 14 roubles for one trip (0.48$)and spend as much time inside as you like. A good way to save money is to buy a card for many rides - the price of one ride will be cheaper then. METRO MAP
