Moscow is the capital of Russia Welcome to Moscow.
Hi! My name is Kate. I’m in 5th form. I’m from Potma. I was in Moscow last summer. And I want to tell you about Moscow.
MoscowMoscow is the capital of Russia. The city is located in western Russia and on the Moskva River. The climate of Moscow is of the continental type. Winters are cold and long, summers are short and mild.
Moscow’s sights Moscow is a modern city now. The population of the city is about 9.8 million people. Moscow is a political centre, where the government of our country works. Moscow was founded in 1147 by Yuri Dolgoruky.
There are many places to see in Moscow. The centre of the city and the historical heart of Moscow is the Kremlin and Red Square. The Lenin Mausoleum stands beneath the Kremlin walls, and the Church of the Intercession,
The Cathedralsor Cathedral of St. Basil the Blessed, is at the southern end of the square.
The State Moscow University. One of the highest buildings in Moscow is the State Moscow University. It was founded in 1755 by the great scientist Mikhail Lomonosov.
There are many theaters and galleries in Moscow The Bolshoi Theatre is one of the famous theaters all over the world. If you are fond of painting you can go to the Tretyakov Art Gallery or to the Pushkin Fine Arts Museum and see a lot of interesting portraits and landscapes there. I say that the Tretyakov Art Gallery is a treasure-house of Russian art. I like to visit the Central Military Museum. There are many tanks, guns and war documents there.
Transport Moscow is a very big city and its transport must be comfortable and fast. I saw a lot of cars, buses, trolley-buses, trams in the streets of the city.
The Moscow's metro began to work on the 15th of May, 1935.There were 13 stations at that time. Now it has 190 stations. Moscow’s metro is a beautiful and convenient one. There are 9 railway stations in Moscow and 5 airports around the city.
Thank you Good bye!
