The city of Moscow the capital of Russia is situated on the banks of the Moskva River that flows through the central parts of Eastern Europe; the city is named after the river with the name itself meaning a river whose waters are dark and turbid.

The word Moskva is supposed to have been derived from the Finnic group of languages and could refer to a cow or bear. The river is a tributary of the river, Oka; the Moskva is a small river and its total length is 503 km.

The river flows through the Moscow and the Smolensk Oblasts and the major towns situated along its course are Zvenigorod, Zhukovsky, Kolomna, Voskresensk and Mozhaysk. The river freezes for a period of 4 to 5 months from November to March in winter. River terminals on the Moskva facilitate passenger traffic and are important centers of river traffic and cruise routes.
