Moscow

As stated in ancient chronicles, in 1147, Prince Yury Dolgoruky invited his relative, Prince Svyatoslav Olgovich, to see him in Moscow, which was a small castle lost in the boundless Russian forest. Thus, the history of Russia's most important political, economic, cultural, and scientific center began. In the 12th century, Moscow turned into a fortress. By the 13th century, it was already a town, and in the 15th century, Moscow became the capital of the Russian State. Today Moscow, with its history, architectural masterpieces, and innumerable art treasures, has found itself in a whirlpool of global currents determining world development. People worldwide come to witness Moscow's splendors and fall for the charm the capital of the largest empire on earth certainly possesses.
