Moscow is the capital and
the most biggest Russian city, situated in the center of European
Russia, the Russian Plain. Moscow is mentioned in the chronicles
for the first time in 1147. The geographical position of Moscow,
in the centre of Russian lands, on the bank of the navigable river,
between Oka-river and Volga-river, in crossing of ancient trade
ways, was economically advantageous and was one of the main reasons
of its economic and cultural development.
