Moscow urban structure

Throughout the centuries Moscow has been evolving in a classical radial-circular structure of development, meaning that the new parts of the city are built around its historical centre. As a result, Moscow is essentially the same now, as it always has been, with its extraordinary combination of old and modern.In the end of 20 century Moscow government decided to seal the city. This led to the disappearance of historic buildings in downtown and outskirts of compaction high rise buildings.Now, Moscow has a new mayor and a government.Master plan for the development of Moscow 2050 is blocked. Muscovites hope on the amendment to the document. Transport Moscow transport The Moscow transportation network is very diverse and exists literally over many levels. The city's buses, trams, Metro, motorways, trains and planes together all serve to maintain a high level of connectivity between Moscow's many different districts and beyond.Also I want to add,that sometimes it is better to use public transport, because you can spend the whole day staing in traffic jam.
