About MoscowThe map showing Moscow, the national capital and largest city of the Russian Federation.
The city is located at the center of European Russia, on the Moskva River.
Moscow became the capital when Ivan the Terrible proclaimed himself the first tsar in the 16th century. Peter the Great moved his capital to St. Petersburg in 1712, but, after the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, Moscow was made the capital of the Soviet Union and seat of the new Soviet government, with its center in the Kremlin.
Today the city is the country’s political, economical, and financial center. More than 10 million people live in its metropolitan area.
