Traveling Down the Moscow River by Drone, in Photos

The winding Moscow River flows through Russia's capital from the northwest to the southeast and passes some of the city's most iconic landmarks along the way.

Come for a journey by drone for a different perspective on the city and its beautiful center, packed with Soviet and modern skyscrapers, parks and medieval churches.

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.

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.
