Moskva - Russia's capital city and its political and economic heart - sits on the far eastern end of Europe, roughly 1 300 km (815 miles) west of the Ural Mountains and the Asian continent. The Moskva (Moscow) River winds through the city, and the Kremlin, the seat of the Russian government, lies at its center. With a population close to 9 million and an area of 1 035 km2 (405 square miles), Moskva is believed to be the largest of all European cities.

These two images show the urban expansion Moskva experienced during the last 25 years of the 20th century. The blue-gray patches are urban areas. The light green areas surrounding the city are farms while the brown areas are regions of sparse vegetation. View detailed information
