Whereas St. Petersburg was supposed to be Russia's "window on the West," Moscow has never had such aspirations: it is unabashedly and unapologetically Russian (nowadays perhaps even Eurasian). As the financial center of a vast country, Moscow doesn't shy away from showing both its wealth and its scale: the best (and largest) restaurants, the most expensive real estate, the busiest metro system, the longest traffic jams are all part of the the city's brand.
