ABOUT THE CITY
Moscow started as a hunting resort in the 12th Century. Since the days of the Russian Empire, it has been the political capital of Russia except for a brief period before the formation of the USSR. It is situated central in Russia, so it has always been an important economical, cultural, scientific, and military center. Its prosperity and varied attractions have swelled its population since the USSR times, with people moving to it from rural areas and the city currently is not able to provide adequate housing and infrastructure to all its citizens. All the major religions of the world are found in Moscow. It has a rich and historic cultural, artistic, and literature scene that also attracts international tourists.
