Moskva

The Official Symbol fo Moscow

Trans-Siberian Railroad

GREAT TO KNOW
    Moskva is the river which runs through Moscow. It flows into the Oka river which is in turn a tributary of the Volga, Europe's longest river, which discharges into the Caspian Sea.
    The Russian parliment is called the Duma.

    One of the most typical examples of the so-called 'Stalin-Gothic' architecture is the high-rise building of the University of Moscow which has 36 floors.

    When in Moscow, make sure you try some blinis - famous little Russian pancakes which are eaten with caviar.

    “Alexander and Natalie” is the only Moscow fountain with drinking water.

    Moscow has more billionaires living in its streets than any other city on earth.

    The official symbol of Moscow is St. George fighting down the Serpent, depicted on a dark-red shield. This symbol was once established in 1781 and restored in 1993.

    The Mikhailovsky (Inzhenerniy) castle is considered the most romantic construction in Saint Petersburg.

    The Moskva River, as well as Gorky Park are mentioned in Scorpions' ballad Wind of Change. The first lines of the lyrics read as : "I follow the Moskva/ Down to Gorky Park/ Listening to the wind of change".

    The city of St. Petersburg, Russia, was founded in 1703 by Peter the Great, hence the name, St. Petersburg. But it wasn't always that simple. In 1914, at the beginning of World War I, Russian leaders felt that Petersburg was too German-sounding. So they changed the name of the city to Petrograd - to make it more Russian-sounding. Then, in 1924, the country's Soviet Communist leaders wanted to honor the founder of the Soviet Union, Vladimir I. Lenin. The city of Petrograd became Leningrad and was known as Leningrad until 1991 when the new Russian legislators - no longer Soviet Communists - wanted the city to reflect their change of government.

    The longest railway in the world is the Trans-Siberian Railway or Trans-Siberian Railroad, built 1891-1916, a network of railways connecting European Russia with Russian Far East provinces. It is 9,288.2 kilometres (5,787 miles) long and spans 8 time zones.
