How to get to Subic Bay

Via private car.

Subic Bay is just a two-hour drive from Manila. It is most accessible through land transportation.

If you are going by car, take the Northern Expressway to the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway( SCTEx ), then exit a few kilometers past the Angeles toll booth. Take the SCTEx in the direction of Subic. The SCTex merges with the Tipo expressway and further into the Subic Bay Freeport Zone.

Via Public Bus

Bus lines that ply the Olongapo-Manila routes are the Victory Liner and Saulog Transit. Victory Liner has terminals in Pasay City, Caloocan, Sampaloc, and Cubao. Saulog Transit is at Dr. Lopez Jaena Street, Cavite City. Saulog has daily trips from 2 A.M. to 2 P.M., with a one-hour interval. Victory Liner starts at 4 A.M., and each bus leaves the terminal hourly. The fare to Olongapo is a little over PhP200.00 for both bus lines.

From the Olongapo City bus terminal, a quick jeepney ride can be used to get to Subic Bay. The city’s jeeps and tricycles here are color-coded, representing specific routes. Yellow jeeps are from Sta. Rita/Pepsi to Main Gate; Red, Gordon Heights to Main Gate; Orange, Public Market to Pag-Asa; Brown, Cabalan to Public Market; Green, Mabayuan to Public Market; and blue, Public Market to Subic Town.

At the Main Gate is a terminal of buses that can take you to various points inside the freeport. Coasters and minibuses are also available anytime to ferry you to your accommodations. Taxi vans are another option but are more expensive than buses or coasters.

SUBIC OVERNIGHT ITINERARY for a Weekend Trip (2 Days/1 Night)

SUBIC OVERNIGHT ITINERARY for a Weekend Trip (2 Days/1 Night)

By continuing to read this article, you agree to double check with the authorities or other concerned entities for the latest updates.

Road tripping is probably the most convenient and safest way to travel especially now that the pandemic is not yet over. It will allow you to travel at your own pace and make stops whenever you need or want to. If you’re coming from Manila, one of the most popular road trip destinations is Subic.

In most conversations, Subic refers to the Subic Bay Freeport Zone (SBFZ), which comprises parts of the municipality of Subic and Olongapo City in Zambales and Morong and Hermosa in Bataan. The former U.S. Navy Base is best known among tourists for its beaches, dive sites, waterparks, and other family-friendly attractions. There are also historic spots along the way. It has also made a name for itself as a shopping hotspot, thanks to the various outlet shops and duty free shopping stores around the area.

If you’re planning to go on a road trip to Subic with family, here are some of the attractions you can visit during an overnight trip. We got to visit these during the recent Subic leg of the NLEX Lakbay Norte. Keep reading to know more details about these attractions that you can include in your Subic itinerary.

WHAT'S COVERED IN THIS GUIDE?

Holy Land Subic Sanctuary

For your first stop, spend a couple of hours at the Holy Land Sanctuary, a biblical theme park and a retreat and pilgrimage site for Catholics. It’s situated somewhere detached from most other attractions, so it’s a good idea to visit this first just to get it out of the way.

Holy Land Sanctuary Subic

Spanning a 15-hectare land along Tipo Expressway and adjacent to the Subic Freeport Sentry Gate, the property is an ancestral land of the Aetas that was leased and developed into Holy Land Sanctuary. In turn, the Aetas are receiving a percentage gross revenue sharing through SBMA (Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority) and they are also provided with jobs in the sanctuary.

Inside Holy Land Sanctuary are over 200 life-sized religious statues depicting the life of Jesus, local devotions, and international apparitions of Mary. The Stations of the Cross draw pilgrims here especially during Holy Week. You will also find a chapel called Chapel of Cana , a prayer wall, a coffee shop, and a souvenir shop here. There are also overnight accommodations at the retreat village if you wish to stay the night or have a guided retreat.

If you’ll visit here to do the way of the cross, don’t worry about getting lost because they will provide a map of the whole place so you’ll be guided where you need to go. If you can’t do a lot of walking or if you’re going with seniors, there are also shuttles that could take you around.

Opening Hours: 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM Location: Adjacent to Subic Freeport Tipo Main Entrance Gate, Tipo Expressway Entrance Fee: P350 – Regular, P280 – Students & Senior Citizens Room Rates: P4000/ room (up to 4pax) Breakfast: P300/head Lunch & Dinner: P350/head For reservation and inquiries, you may contact them at 09189380979 or 09064641945.

If you’re not a Roman Catholic or you’d rather visit somewhere else, you’ll find eco-trails like Pamulaklakin Forest Trail and El Kabayo Trail (and El Kabayo Waterfall) around the area. I’m just not sure if they’re open these days so please double check before you go. There are also wildlife observation spots around the area.

Tree Points Bistro

Tree Points Bistro Facade

Yes, tree not three. This restaurant and sports bar was named such because of the trees inside the restaurant. Instead of cutting them down, the owner decided to keep and incorporate the huge trees in the design of the place.

Tree Points Bistro serves a variety of dishes from Western fare like steaks, pizza, pasta, and burgers to Filipino dishes like lomi, beef mami, and champorado. They also offer coffee, smoothies, wine, and beer.

We got to try their pizza with a really thin crust and lots of cheese, which I loved. I also had one of their “Belly Buster” meals—the Tom Brady’s BBQ Belly, which is pork belly slathered with barbecue sauce and served with garlic rice. Their smoothies are perfect if you’re going for a meal on a hot summer day like we did.

Tree Points Bistro Subic Pizza

The restaurant is very spacious and has a lot of tables so even if you’re with a group, you don’t have to worry about the place feeling too crowded.

Opening Hours: 6:00 AM – 11:00 PM Location: Aguinaldo corner Raymundo St., Subic Bay Freeport Zone

Hotel Check-in

After a hearty lunch, it’s time to check in!

Subic Grand Harbour Hotel Subic Bay,

As a well-developed tourism hotspot, Subic harbors lots of accommodation options. As part of this edition of Lakbay Norte, we stayed at Subic Grand Harbour , which is a beach front hotel and resort. This is perfect for you if you want to stay close to the beach or if you’re interested in trying out water activities. You’ll find a water sports station just down the beach. It is also within the Central Business District so restaurants, cafes, and convenience stores are plenty.

✅ CHECK RATES & AVAILABILITY!

If you’re looking for other options, search for more SUBIC RESORTS!

Subic Rolling Tour

The Subic Rolling Tour will take you around the Freeport zone. The tour usually starts at the Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center (SBECC) and will take you to the following sites:

  • Spanish Gate
  • Inang Laya Monument
  • Bat Kingdom
  • Duty Free shops

If you book this tour, a tour guide will lead you, as they share information about the different stops. However, note that the tour guide would have to ride with you in your vehicle during the rolling tour.

Bat Kingdom Subic

To book a rolling tour, you can send an email to [email protected] . In your email, indicate the date of your trip, name of the point person for your group, and mobile number.

Rates: P250 – Private Vehicle P500 – Coaster or Bus Note: There’s no fee for the tour guide, but you are encouraged to give your guide a tip. If you have inquiries, you may contact (047) 252 4049.

Subic Bay Yacht Cruise (Splurge Option)

Yacht Cruise Subic

You’re probably thinking: This is an expensive activity for a road trip, and… you’re right. It is pricey. But if you’re celebrating a special occasion or you’re with a big group and could split the cost, this could be worth it!

The yacht cruise would take you around the bay and treat you to the gorgeous view of the Subic horizon for 2 hours. You can also bring food and drinks on board, so you could have a party while on the cruise if you want.

They also offer a dinner cruise where you can enjoy steak and seafood while on the yacht. This is a great date idea if you’re going with your significant other.

Rates: Private Yacht Rental- P6000/hour (Minimum of 2 hours, up to 20 pax) Steak and Seafood Meal – P999/person (Optional)

Dinner Cruise P1950 (Steak & Seafood + 2 hour cruise) P1750 (Mixed Grill + 2 hour cruise)

Location: Subic Bay Yacht Club Rizal Highway Corner Burgos St., Subic Bay Freeport Zone For booking and inquiries, you may call La Banca Cruises at 0917 548 3218

Subic Bay Weekend Eco Market

Subic Weekend Eco Market

If a yacht cruise dinner is too over-the-top for you and you’d rather stay grounded, how about a visit to an eco market?

If you’re visiting Subic on a weekend, drop by the Subic Bay Weekend Eco Market, composed of various booths selling local products. You’ll also find stalls serving food.

Subic Weekend Eco Market Food Stalls

When we visited, there were booths selling handmade products like bags, baskets, and banigs (traditional mats) and food products like mushroom chips, yogurt and other dairy products, and fruit wines too!

Opening Hours: Weekends, 3:00 PM – 8:00 PM Location: Dewey Ave, Subic Bay Freeport Zone

After foraging through the weekend market, time to head back to the hotel for a well-deserved good night’s sleep!

Inflatable Island

For maximum fun time, gallop to the premier inflatable playground in the Philippines! Dubbed the biggest in Asia, the Inflatable Island in Subic features slides, bridges, towers, swings, human launchers, and more!

sbma tourist spot

This beachside floating island spans about 4,200 square meters and also includes other features such as Floating Zoo, Bali Lounge, Unicorn Island, and Samba Beach. The waterpark will get your adrenaline pumping now more than ever with its newly launched rides — the Unicornzilla and Vortex.

Actually, this isn’t part of our recent Lakbay Norte trip. But since there is a gap in our itinerary, we decided to fill it in with this. Besides, as one adage goes, one does not leave Subic without hitting the beach!

You can check Klook’s discounted rates for three packages: half-day pass, all-day pass, an all-day pass with lunch.

sbma tourist spot

Meat Plus Cafe

For today’s lunch, how about we steak to the classic?

Meat Plus Subic

Serving mostly steaks, Meat Plus Cafe started out as a store selling raw meat. But due to its wide popularity among the people in Subic, they eventually turned it into a restaurant. Their setup here is a bit different compared to other steak restaurants. The order process is similar to a fast food restaurant where you would line up at the counter, order your food, pay, and then find a table and wait for your order to be served. They also have a freezer where you can choose your own steak and have it cooked for a fee.

Aside from steaks, they also have ribs, burgers, chicken, salmon, and pasta on their menu. Salads, soups, sides, and dessert options are also available. We were told that one of the popular items on their menu is the potato skins, which we tried while waiting for our steaks. It was very crunchy and comes with a sour cream and a cheese dip.

For the main course, I had their ribeye steak and it was very tender. Their steak meals come with rice and vegetables, but you can also opt to just have either of the two. You can also order your steak according to your preferred doneness.

Opening Hours: Mondays-Thursdays, 10:00 AM – 8:00 PM; Fridays-Sundays, 10:00 AM – 9:00 PM. Location: Sampson Rd, Subic Bay Freeport Zone

Royal Duty Free

You’ve probably made a stop here as part of the Rolling Tour, but if you ran out of time, there’s no shame in returning for good deals!

Royal Duty Free Subic

One of the most popular things to do in Subic is shopping. There are a lot of outlet shops and duty free stores here. If you’re looking for pasalubong or just shopping for yourself, head over to Royal Duty Free , where you can find both local and foreign products from food, clothes, toys, and more.

Royal Duty Free Shops Subic Chocolates

If you’re planning to shop here, keep in mind that the prices of products are in USD, but once you checkout, you can pay in peso. They accept cash, card, GCash, and PayMaya payments.

Opening Hours: 9:00 AM – 7:00 PM Locations: Palm Street, Subic Bay Freeport Zone Manila Avenue, cor. Canal Road, Subic Bay Freeport Zone

How to Get to Subic

Manila to subic by car.

Driving from Manila to Subic takes 2.5 to 4 hours depending on the traffic conditions. The journey is very convenient because the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) connect Metro Manila to Subic.

Navigating should not be a problem. From Manila, enter NLEX and drive along the expressway until you reach the exit to SCTEX. Take the SCTEX Exit and continue driving to SBMA.

Nearest Airport

If you’re flying in from outside the country or other destinations in the Philippines, the nearest airport from Subic is the Clark International Airport (CRK) located in Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga.

New Clark Airport

Clark International Airport has opened its New Terminal Building last May 2 and all flights will now depart and arrive in this terminal. The new terminal has modern designs and technologically advanced features that are very suitable in the current times. The airport’s interior is very modern and bright with a wood ceiling and floor to ceiling windows that will treat passengers to a view of Mount Arayat.

New Clark International Airport

One of the key features are the contactless airport procedures including their self check-in counters and self bag drop. Although this is not new to airports in general, this is an upgrade from the old terminal. For their self check-in counters, you also have the option to access it through your mobile device by scanning a QR code if you’re cautious about touching the screen.

Clark to Subic by Car

If you’re driving from Clark, take SCTEX and follow the road signs leading to SBMA/Subic Bay Freeport Zone. Travel time is around 45 minutes, depending on the traffic situation.

(photo via Instagram, @MonicaRacestheWorld) Subic Bay is known for its beaches, but not a everyone knows about its hidden gem, Dungaree Beach.

Mt. Balingkilat

(photo via Instagram, @Davendonfranche) Remember that cliche “Life’s a climb, but the view is great”? Well, it couldn’t be more appropriate for Mt Balingkilat. The Subic tourist spot isn’t an easy one to hike -- it takes around 14 hours to reach the peak and with the scorching sun and absence of much trees, the trek is not for the faint of heart or health. But the summit is all worth it. The view on top of the mountain is breathtaking, making the two-day climb a piece of cake.

10. Royal Duty Free

You may question the inclusion of Royal Duty Free to this list, but if tourists are visiting the province just to shop then this shouldn’t be a surprise addition to this best Subic tourist spots list.

The Moscow Metro Museum of Art: 10 Must-See Stations

There are few times one can claim having been on the subway all afternoon and loving it, but the Moscow Metro provides just that opportunity.  While many cities boast famous public transport systems—New York’s subway, London’s underground, San Salvador’s chicken buses—few warrant hours of exploration.  Moscow is different: Take one ride on the Metro, and you’ll find out that this network of railways can be so much more than point A to B drudgery.

The Metro began operating in 1935 with just thirteen stations, covering less than seven miles, but it has since grown into the world’s third busiest transit system ( Tokyo is first ), spanning about 200 miles and offering over 180 stops along the way.  The construction of the Metro began under Joseph Stalin’s command, and being one of the USSR’s most ambitious building projects, the iron-fisted leader instructed designers to create a place full of svet (radiance) and svetloe budushchee (a radiant future), a palace for the people and a tribute to the Mother nation.

Consequently, the Metro is among the most memorable attractions in Moscow.  The stations provide a unique collection of public art, comparable to anything the city’s galleries have to offer and providing a sense of the Soviet era, which is absent from the State National History Museum.  Even better, touring the Metro delivers palpable, experiential moments, which many of us don’t get standing in front of painting or a case of coins.

Though tours are available , discovering the Moscow Metro on your own provides a much more comprehensive, truer experience, something much less sterile than following a guide.  What better place is there to see the “real” Moscow than on mass transit: A few hours will expose you to characters and caricatures you’ll be hard-pressed to find dining near the Bolshoi Theater.  You become part of the attraction, hear it in the screech of the train, feel it as hurried commuters brush by: The Metro sucks you beneath the city and churns you into the mix.

With the recommendations of our born-and-bred Muscovite students, my wife Emma and I have just taken a self-guided tour of what some locals consider the top ten stations of the Moscow Metro. What most satisfied me about our Metro tour was the sense of adventure .  I loved following our route on the maps of the wagon walls as we circled the city, plotting out the course to the subsequent stops; having the weird sensation of being underground for nearly four hours; and discovering the next cavern of treasures, playing Indiana Jones for the afternoon, piecing together fragments of Russia’s mysterious history.  It’s the ultimate interactive museum.

Top Ten Stations (In order of appearance)

Kievskaya station.

sbma tourist spot

Kievskaya Station went public in March of 1937, the rails between it and Park Kultury Station being the first to cross the Moscow River.  Kievskaya is full of mosaics depicting aristocratic scenes of Russian life, with great cameo appearances by Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin.  Each work has a Cyrillic title/explanation etched in the marble beneath it; however, if your Russian is rusty, you can just appreciate seeing familiar revolutionary dates like 1905 ( the Russian Revolution ) and 1917 ( the October Revolution ).

Mayakovskaya Station

Mayakovskaya Station ranks in my top three most notable Metro stations. Mayakovskaya just feels right, done Art Deco but no sense of gaudiness or pretention.  The arches are adorned with rounded chrome piping and create feeling of being in a jukebox, but the roof’s expansive mosaics of the sky are the real showstopper.  Subjects cleverly range from looking up at a high jumper, workers atop a building, spires of Orthodox cathedrals, to nimble aircraft humming by, a fleet of prop planes spelling out CCCP in the bluest of skies.

Novoslobodskaya Station

sbma tourist spot

Novoslobodskaya is the Metro’s unique stained glass station.  Each column has its own distinctive panels of colorful glass, most of them with a floral theme, some of them capturing the odd sailor, musician, artist, gardener, or stenographer in action.  The glass is framed in Art Deco metalwork, and there is the lovely aspect of discovering panels in the less frequented haunches of the hall (on the trackside, between the incoming staircases).  Novosblod is, I’ve been told, the favorite amongst out-of-town visitors.

Komsomolskaya Station

Komsomolskaya Station is one of palatial grandeur.  It seems both magnificent and obligatory, like the presidential palace of a colonial city.  The yellow ceiling has leafy, white concrete garland and a series of golden military mosaics accenting the tile mosaics of glorified Russian life.  Switching lines here, the hallway has an Alice-in-Wonderland feel, impossibly long with decorative tile walls, culminating in a very old station left in a remarkable state of disrepair, offering a really tangible glimpse behind the palace walls.

Dostoevskaya Station

sbma tourist spot

Dostoevskaya is a tribute to the late, great hero of Russian literature .  The station at first glance seems bare and unimpressive, a stark marble platform without a whiff of reassembled chips of tile.  However, two columns have eerie stone inlay collages of scenes from Dostoevsky’s work, including The Idiot , The Brothers Karamazov , and Crime and Punishment.   Then, standing at the center of the platform, the marble creates a kaleidoscope of reflections.  At the entrance, there is a large, inlay portrait of the author.

Chkalovskaya Station

Chkalovskaya does space Art Deco style (yet again).  Chrome borders all.  Passageways with curvy overhangs create the illusion of walking through the belly of a chic, new-age spacecraft.  There are two (kos)mosaics, one at each end, with planetary subjects.  Transferring here brings you above ground, where some rather elaborate metalwork is on display.  By name similarity only, I’d expected Komsolskaya Station to deliver some kosmonaut décor; instead, it was Chkalovskaya that took us up to the space station.

Elektrozavodskaya Station

sbma tourist spot

Elektrozavodskaya is full of marble reliefs of workers, men and women, laboring through the different stages of industry.  The superhuman figures are round with muscles, Hollywood fit, and seemingly undeterred by each Herculean task they respectively perform.  The station is chocked with brass, from hammer and sickle light fixtures to beautiful, angular framework up the innards of the columns.  The station’s art pieces are less clever or extravagant than others, but identifying the different stages of industry is entertaining.

Baumanskaya Statio

Baumanskaya Station is the only stop that wasn’t suggested by the students.  Pulling in, the network of statues was just too enticing: Out of half-circle depressions in the platform’s columns, the USSR’s proud and powerful labor force again flaunts its success.  Pilots, blacksmiths, politicians, and artists have all congregated, posing amongst more Art Deco framing.  At the far end, a massive Soviet flag dons the face of Lenin and banners for ’05, ’17, and ‘45.  Standing in front of the flag, you can play with the echoing roof.

Ploshchad Revolutsii Station

sbma tourist spot

Novokuznetskaya Station

Novokuznetskaya Station finishes off this tour, more or less, where it started: beautiful mosaics.  This station recalls the skyward-facing pieces from Mayakovskaya (Station #2), only with a little larger pictures in a more cramped, very trafficked area.  Due to a line of street lamps in the center of the platform, it has the atmosphere of a bustling market.  The more inventive sky scenes include a man on a ladder, women picking fruit, and a tank-dozer being craned in.  The station’s also has a handsome black-and-white stone mural.

Here is a map and a brief description of our route:

Start at (1)Kievskaya on the “ring line” (look for the squares at the bottom of the platform signs to help you navigate—the ring line is #5, brown line) and go north to Belorusskaya, make a quick switch to the Dark Green/#2 line, and go south one stop to (2)Mayakovskaya.  Backtrack to the ring line—Brown/#5—and continue north, getting off at (3)Novosblodskaya and (4)Komsolskaya.  At Komsolskaya Station, transfer to the Red/#1 line, go south for two stops to Chistye Prudy, and get on the Light Green/#10 line going north.  Take a look at (5)Dostoevskaya Station on the northern segment of Light Green/#10 line then change directions and head south to (6)Chkalovskaya, which offers a transfer to the Dark Blue/#3 line, going west, away from the city center.  Have a look (7)Elektroskaya Station before backtracking into the center of Moscow, stopping off at (8)Baumskaya, getting off the Dark Blue/#3 line at (9)Ploschad Revolyutsii.  Change to the Dark Green/#2 line and go south one stop to see (10)Novokuznetskaya Station.

Moscow metro to be more tourist-friendly

For many years now, Moscow has lagged behind St. Petersburg when it comes to making life easy for tourists, especially where getting around the city is concerned. Whereas the northern capital installed English-language maps, signs and information points throughout its subway system in the late 2000s, the Russian capital’s metro remained a serious challenge for foreign visitors to navigate.

Recent visitors to Moscow may have noticed some signs that change is afoot, however. In many stations of the Moscow subway, signs have appeared on the floor – with large lettering in Russian and English – indicating the direction to follow in order to change lines. Previously, foreign visitors using the Moscow metro had to rely solely upon deciphering the Russian-language signs hanging from the ceilings.

Student volunteers help tourists find their way in Moscow

However, this new solution has a significant drawback. “The floor navigation is visible only to a small stream of people – fewer than three people per meter. During peak hours, this navigation will simply not be noticed,” said Konstantin Trofimenko, Director of the Center for Urban Transportation Studies.

One of the biggest problems for tourists in the Russian capital remains the absence of English translations of the names of subway stations in the station vestibules and on platforms. The Department of Transportation in Moscow has not commented yet as to when this problem will be solved. However, Latin transliterations of station names can already be found in the subway cars themselves.

Finding the right exit

At four of the central stations – Okhotny Ryad, Teatralnaya, Ploshchad Revolyutsii, Lubyanka and Kuznetsky Most – the city authorities have now installed colorful stands at the exits with schematic diagrams of the station’s concourse and surrounding area, which provide information about the main attractions and infrastructural facilities.

The schematic diagrams are the work of British specialists from the City ID and Billings Jackson Design firms, who have already implemented successful projects in New York and London.

According to Alexei Novichkov, expert at the Design Laboratory at the Higher School of Economics, the design of these information booths raises no objections: The color solutions, font, layout and icons are consistent with international standards.

Kudankulam

However, the stands do have some shortcomings. “Many questions are raised about the fact that the developers of these maps did not apply orientation to the north, and have provided layouts of the surrounding areas with respect to the exits,” says Novichkov. “A system like that is used for road navigators, but most of the ‘paper’ guides and maps are oriented strictly to north. The subway map is also oriented to north, so people may become confused.”

Muscovites and foreign visitors are generally positive about these navigation elements, with most of them citing the numbered exits from the subway as the most useful feature.

The fact is that many Moscow subway stations have several exits. One of the busiest central stations of the Moscow subway in particular, Kitay-Gorod, has more than a dozen exits. Previously, these exits were differentiated from each other only with signs in Russian referring to the names of streets and places of interest to which they led – making it easy for tourists and those with poor navigation skills to get confused.

Now, when making an appointment to meet a friend, instead of struggling to find the right spot when they tell you: “I'll meet you at the exit to Solyanka Street,” you can just propose to meet under a specific exit number.

“I’ve lived in Moscow for seven years,” says Angelika, a designer from Voronezh, “but I still don’t always know where to go to find the place I need, so the new schematic diagrams will be very useful. Previously, some subway stations had maps, but not with so much detail.”

Teething problems

Foreigners, meanwhile, focus their attention on other elements. “It is good that the new information boards have QR-codes, which can be ‘read’ by smartphones,” says Florentina, a writer from Vienna. But there are also shortcomings. “The English font of the information on posters and in the captions to theaters and museums is too small – you have to come very close to see it well,” she says.

Pleasant encounters on the streets of Moscow

Florentina was also dissatisfied with the fact that such posters are not provided at all subway stations: “When I was trying to find Tsaritsyno Park (a museum and reserve in the south of Moscow) at a subway station with the same name, it turned out to be quite difficult,” she says.

“There are no maps with landmarks for other areas, such as those already in the city center. There were no clear pointers in the English language, and the passers-by I met did not speak in English, so they could not help me,” she adds.

Officials say that the navigation system is gradually being redeveloped and improved. According to Darya Chuvasheva, a press representative for the Department of Transport of Moscow, the introduction of a unified navigation system will take place in stages.

“By the end of 2014, the system will first appear on the first subway stations on the Circle Line. By the end of 2015, we plan to install the system at all major stopping points, subway stations and transport interchange hubs,” says Chuvasheva.
