Moscow is located in the European part of Russia, an average of 156 meters above sea level, between the Oka and Volga rivers, and the partly steep banks of the Moskva River, a tributary of the Oka which flows into the Volga.

About 120 small rivers are streaming towards the Moskva River. With the exception of 14, they were all installed in underground pipe systems. The 128-kilometer-long Moscow-Volga canal, which branches off to the north in the west of the city, provides for the navigable connection of the river to the Iwankovo ​​reservoir or the Volga river.

The city boundary, with few exceptions, forms the 109 kilometer-long outer highway ring (MKAD). The urban area has an area of ​​2511 square kilometers. The green areas account for about a third of the urban area. These include around 100 parks and more than 800 well-maintained facilities, enriched by approximately 500 ponds.
