Moscow is the capital of Russia, the largest city in the country and Europe, and one of the largest cities in the world. Moscow refers to global cities having a great influence on the world because of its high economic level and population. It is the main transport hub of Russia, its political, economic, cultural, and scientific center.

Moscow features

Moscow is located in the center of the European part of Russia, between the rivers Oka and Volga. The climate is moderate continental: heavy frosts and extreme heat are rare. The average temperature in January – minus 7.2 degrees Celsius, in July – plus 20.4 degrees Celsius.
The city has the status of a separate federal subject of the Russian Federation. It is the smallest federal subject by land area.
The name of the city as well as the names of many other cities around the world, is bound with the name of the river it is standing on (the Moskva River). The river was called this way long before the settlement appeared. It is unknown who named it and what this name means. There are two main versions: Finnio-Ugric and Slavic.
According to the first one, the word “Moskva” is derived from the Finno-Ugric language group which means “river-bear”. The Slavic theory points to the stem “mosk” denoting “marshy” or “moisture, liquid, marshland, dampness”.
The city is surrounded by 6 airports, 9 railway stations, and 3 river ports. Moscow has developed a fabulous metro (subway) system. The first stations were built in 1935.
Moscow is the largest Russian financial center. About half of Russian banks are located in Moscow. Most of the largest companies are registered and have head offices in Moscow, although their manufactures might be located thousands of km from the city.
The city is the most important center of retail sales in Russia. Moscow represents about 30% of all commodities sold in Russia.

Moscow transport system

Moscow has been the largest transport hub of Russia throughout its history. The city is located in the very center of the hub of railways and highways.
The main airports are Vnukovo International Airport (located in Moscow), Domodedovo International Airport and Sheremetyevo International Airport (located in the Moscow region).
Moscow is the central hub of Russian federal highways heading different directions and connecting the city with other administrative centers of the country and bordering states.
Since 1935, the underground railway has been in action in the city. Today, it is the main means of transportation within the capital of Russia. On average, the Moscow Metro carries about 7 million passengers per day.
Moscow faces serious transport problems, because of the explosive increase in the number of vehicles on the streets. Traffic jams of all kinds occur very often.
Moscow is one of the largest cultural and tourist centers of Europe and the world. There are a lot of different places of interest in the city – various historical, cultural, and architectural sites as well as entertainment centers. Moscow has a decent number of hotels including the ones of the world famous hotel brands known for their quality and ambiance.

The Kremlin, the Bolshoi Theater, A.S.Pushkin Fine Arts Museum, and Tretyakov Gallery are among the most famous Moscow sights.

Such sights as the Novodevichy monastery and Kolomenskoye estate are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The hyperboloid design of Shuhovskaya tower and Ostankino TV tower are unique. The latter was once the highest building in the world (540 m).
