Metro stations are marked with a big, red 'M' letter. There are 11 lines, each marked with different colors and they come very frequently, less than 2 minutes during the peak time.
It can be difficult that almost everything in the metro is written in the Cyrillic alphabet. The best is if you are somewhat familiar with it, but you can get along even if you are not.
You should carefully listen to the announcements on the train. If you still get lost, you can get off the metro, find the name of the station on the platform (here you can find it written in Latin alphabet as well) and wait for the next train, only 1 or 2 minutes.
There is another trap. There are stations where two or more different lines meet. These interchanged stationd usually have different names for different lines/colors. Cool, isn't it? ;)
You can save money if you purchase a block of 10 or 20 tickets. More than one people can use the block, you just have to pass it back to your friend when it pops up after you are through the machine.
One more interesting thing, the metro tunnels and stations are very deep underground for they were constructed to be used as bomb shelters as well.
