The Skyscrapers of Moscow City, in Photos

Moscow is more a city of brick krushchevki apartment buildings and panel housing than high-rises. But Moscow City — a cluster of skyscrapers in western Moscow — is a notable exception. The business district took two decades to build and now has some of the tallest skyscrapers in Europe. Here's a look at Moscow's business district from far, near, within and above. 

Independent journalism isn’t dead. You can help keep it alive.

As the only remaining independent, English-language news source reporting from Russia, The Moscow Times plays a critical role in connecting Russia to the world.

Editorial decisions are made entirely by journalists in our newsroom, who adhere to the highest ethical standards. We fearlessly cover issues that are often considered off-limits or taboo in Russia, from domestic violence and LGBT issues to the climate crisis and a secretive nuclear blast that exposed unknowing doctors to radiation.

As we approach the holiday season, please consider making a one-time donation — or better still a recurring donation — to The Moscow Times to help us continue producing vital, high-quality journalism about the world’s largest country.
