Metrotour, the official guided tour agency for Moscow’s Metro, has opened its doors at the Vystavochnaya Metro Station.

“The subway is a whole underground city of great interest to tourists, so we decided to start a guided tour agency,” said Moscow Metro chief Dmitry Pegov. “Today, with the help from the Museum of Moscow, it is becoming a reality.”

The agency offers twelve guided tours of the Moscow subway in Russian, English and Chinese.

Metrotour is a joint project between the Moscow Metro and the Museum of Moscow. The first tourists set off on a guided tour of the Moscow Metro right after the opening ceremony on May 15, with the next tour, “Metro at Night”, taking place on the Moscow’s annual Museum Night on May 21st.
