Moscow, a city of 12 Mio people, is the capital of Russia (map of Russia). Moscow State University (MGU) named after the famous poet and scientist Mikhail Lomonosov is located in the middle of a huge park at the outside the city center on the former Lenin hills, on the shore of the river Moskva. A 20 min. metro ride connects the campus (metro station ‘universitet’) to the red square. The main building is more than 600 feet (200 m) high and was built after Word War II in the typical Stalinian style.
