History of Moscow
Moscow was the first capital of the Duchy of Moscow/Muscovy in the 14th century for over 200 years. It soon was replaced by the Tsardom of Russia, moving the new capital to the city of Saint Petersburg. It then became the capital city of the Soviet Union once again. The city of Moscow was in a battle between Nazi Germany and the Soviets. The soviets had to defend Moscow from the Nazis taking it in the war. The Battle for Moscow ended up in a soviet victory, and soon at the end of the war, the Soviets also made the Soviet Satellite of East Germany. Many decades later, after the fall of the Soviet Union and independencies of several nations, Moscow became the capital of Russia from 1991, to the present.
