Native name: Москва
Alpha Global Cities
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.
