    Over the centuries of its existence Moscow has swallowed up several hundred settlements, villages and even small towns that have entered its modern borders. Nowadays new Moscow quarters are in their place, and only the names of certain districts, streets and squares remind of the existence of former settlements. In this book the reader will be able to find interesting details on the history of each administrative district, each district of the capital, and visualize the ancient geography of modern Moscow. The book won in one of the nominations in the contest of Association of Russian Book Publishers "The Best Book of the Year" in 2011.
