A Brief History of Moscow
Moscow is named after the river that runs through it - the Moskva River - and was originally called "the city by the Moskva River." The earliest known Moscow reference comes from 1147 - talk about old! The city has a population of 11.5 million people (or Muscovites), 3 million more than the city of New York. The city is currently the most populous in the country. Moscow was home to the 1980 Summer Olympic Games, as well as the first ever World Youth Games in 1998.
Moscow's Meaning to Russia
Moscow is Russia's capital and home to the Kremlin, the home of Russia's government. However, Moscow has not always been the Russian capital - from 1712 to 1918 St. Petersburg was the capital, until the Bolshevik Revolution brought it back to Moscow. The capital is home to many churches, museums, and theaters and is a Russian cultural hub. Here you can find all you want to know about Russia, and more, plus you can see it all for your own eyes.
