Moscow, the capital of Russia, was founded in 1147 by prince Yuri Dolgoruky as a fortress on the bank of the Moscow river. Within over 850 years of its history Moscow has developed into the one of the largest cities of the world with a territory of almost 1000 sq.km (appr.650 sq.miles) and a population of about 10 million people.
It is the economic and political centre of Russia, the seat of the Russian government. There are a lot of inland and foreign companies, educational and cultural institutions in the city. The Kremlin, a north-pointing triangle with sides 750m (2460ft) long, is at the heart of Moscow in every way — symbolically, historically and strategically. Red Square lies along its east side, the Moscow River flows past its south side. From here, Moscow spreads out in four distinctive rings of development, each area having its own collection of monasteries, museums and elegant buildings.
