A City Reborn: The Epic Transformation of Moscow's Streets

Summer in Moscow is the blissful season of trips to the dacha, fresh watermelon, and the unceasing sound of drilling from the city's never-ending barrage of roadworks. The Moscow's mayor's ambitious project to overhaul the streets of the capital has been time-consuming, expensive, and controversial: but finally, residents are starting to see some real results.

The Moscow Times has picked the best before and after shots from Moscow's streets to showcase the city's extraordinary ongoing transformation.

Russia media is under attack.

At least 10 independent media outlets have been blocked or closed down over their coverage of the war in Ukraine.

The Moscow Times needs your help more than ever as we cover this devastating invasion and its sweeping impacts on Russian society.
