Moscow-The capital of Russia Moscow is the capital of Russia, its administrative, economic, political and educational centre. It is one of Russia's major cities with the population of 9 million people. Its total area is about 900 thousand square kilometres. Moscow is a major industrial city. Moscow is a railway, highway and international airway cross-road. It has 9 railway stations, 5 airports and besides Moscow is a port of five seas. Moscow is the city of science and learning.
The city was founded by Prince Yuri Dolgoruky in 1147 as a fortress on the bank of the wide and deep Moskva river. At first it was a small settlement with wooden houses surrounded by wooden walls to protect people from the enemies. As the time passed Moscow turned into a wealthy city. In the 16th century, under Ivan the Terrible, Moscow became the capital of the state of Muscovy. Many times Moscow suffered from various invaders-the Tatars in the 13th century, the Napoleon's occupation in the 19th century, two World wars in the 20th century. The present-day Moscow is the seat of the government of the Russian Federation.
