About Moscow
Exploring Moscow
Every year WCC is not only about the event itself but also about the city it is held in. Find out more about Moscow from this video and plan your time to do some sightseeing!

During the past four years Moscow has undergone significant changes. From the city paralyzed by the consequences of the car-oriented development it is moving towards a pedestrian and bicycle-friendlier city. The number of cars is reducing; more and more initiatives aimed at promoting bicycle as a means of transportation are taking place.

With its square of 2511 km² and population of about 20 million people Moscow is a huge city, a megalopolis and a capital that attracts a lot of attention. Moscow can be seen as a separate country with its big potential. It is a common knowledge that the future the world population is an urban future, big cities are the most prospective and people flow to the big cities every year. That is why Moscow shouldn't be considered only as Moscow itself, it is an example and a start point for all changes in Russia, this is the place all trends taken by the regions are coming from and in many cases it is also an example for the CIS countries.

Moscow is a world class city and its experience and facilities for holding big events are hard to overestimate. There are three big international airports well-connected to the city center, easy and fast transportation access to different parts of the city, modern high-tech venues to hold events on the highest level. Moscow can be easily reached by train from many locations such as Finland, for example. Foreigners feel quite comfortable here even without knowing a word in Russian because of the bilingual urban navigation.

Russian government has its seat in Moscow that is why the outcome provided by the events held in the capital are more likely to be heard. Moscow has a huge economic potential. Offices of many Russian and international companies are located here.

Moscow will be the main destination in 2018 and the logistic center of Russia because of the World Cup that will take place in 11 Russian cities. Attention to the urban development, comfortable transportation, and tourism will be paid more than usual.
