In Exploring Moscow by Douglas Fehlen, we find out a lot of fun facts about Russia’s capital city. We find out that Moscow is over 900 years old and hasn’t always been the capital. When Peter the Great was czar, he moved the capital to St. Petersburg and it was only after the Russian Revolution that it was switched back. Moscow is home to the Kremlin and other important government buildings. The city is home to many major landmarks like St. Basil’s, Annunciation and Archangel cathedrals. These buildings stick out with their gorgeous colors.

It is home to the Bolshoi Ballet Company, the Tretyakov Gallery, the Multimedia Art Museum and Moscow’s state historical museum which opened in 1883 during the coronation of Alexander III. Moscow was the site of the 1980 Summer Olympic Games. America didn’t send any athletes that year because the Soviet Union had invaded Afghanistan in '79. Aside from the history and sights, we also are given a list of some fascinating tidbits of information. An interesting one is that there’s actually an underground river called the Neglinnaya. It flows five miles through the central part of Moscow.

Once again Douglas Fehlen has succeeded in delivering a very informative book on another major city. This time we learn about the ins and outs of Moscow, the capital city of Russia. Exploring Moscow is written very simply but is packed full of facts within its thirty or so pages. Despite being a book written for children, adults can also get great use out of it as well. It’s an informative book for all ages.
