Moscow is a city in Russia, with around 10.4 million inhabitants. It is the largest city in Russia. Lemi has 4 lists with places in Moscow.
I am a bit obsessed with metros (I design metro maps) and some underground stations are works of art in their own right! From the New York subway to the London Underground and Stockholm Metro, here are some of my favourite stations!
The Trans-Mongolian is one of the world’s last great train journeys. It takes 6 days to travel from Beijing in China through Mongolia, Siberia all to way to Moscow. Sensible people break the journey along the way and visit Ulan Bator or Lake Baikal. Silly people like me do it in one go with no stops! Here’s the story of my trip.
Which towns and cities are lucky enough to have an element named after them? 32 of the 118 element names are associated with places on Earth, though for this list i am excluding places named after whole countries (eg Francium for France, Nihonium for Japan) or continents (eg Europium, Americium), states/provinces (eg Californium, Hassium for Hesse in Germany) and regions (eg Scandium for Scandinavium).

Moscow's Metro is reknowned for its architecture, and one of the most beautiful stations on the network is at Komsomolskaya. The chandeliers and painted yellow roof make you think you're in a museum or a cathedral.

The heart of Moscow! ❤️ I’d love to see this place mainly because of the unique mix of architecture and design. Other attractions are also located in this part of town.

By 2003 squabbling about what to name the transuranic elements had mostly subsided and so when a joint team of Russians and Americans discovered artificial element 115 at JINR in Dubna, Moscow Oblast it was agreed to name it Moscovium after the Russian capital city. Only 100 atoms of Moscovium have been observed to date making it one of the rarest of all elements!

All the cabins have a guestbook with comments from previous travellers. All the comments are enormously positive about the carriage attendants on the train, who are called the fuwuyuan in China, or the provodnik / provodnitsa in Russia. We suspect they rip out the negative comments! Some people leave poems, I leave a positive review as is traditional. Finally after 126 hours on the trains we arrive in Moscow just 3 minutes behind schedule!
