From the golden onion-shaped domes of great cathedrals to the palaces of the Kremlin, Moscow reflects its history and culture as capital of the world's largest country, the Russian Federation. In the past, Muscovites have united to repel invaders in the Middle Ages and defeat Napoleon's army in the nineteenth century. Today its citizens are facing with energy and courage the tough transition from a government-controlled economy to a free market. Great Cities of the World explores what makes Moscow an intriguing metropolis.
