    Almost since its very founding over eight and a half centuries ago, Moscow played a prominent role in the history of Russia. Enduring the onslaught of some of the most powerful armies in history and serving as the country's political, cultural and spiritual center, the city has seen much throughout its history and has much to show as well.

    This gallery allows you to sample the views of Moscow both today and from a hundred years ago, to see how the city has changed; how it looked before the tumultuous events of the Great War and the Great Revolution and how it stands today.
