West of the Urals, Russia is densely populated and yet the area becomes miniscule when mapping the entire country. We have prepared a map that is centred on Moscow and radiates outwards. Due to the projection necessary for a map close to the North Pole, St. Petersburg and Murmansk are at the top of the map, Rostov and the Black Sea are in the southwest corner, and the Ural Mountains bless the southeast portion of the map. The front side has an excellent inset of St. Petersburg and the reverse a city centre map of Moscow, along with the remaining portion of western Russia and the place names index. Western Russia is the part of Russia just about every visitor sees. It is the ‘face’ of Russia and adventuresome though the Trans-Siberian Railway may be, Western Russia is where the people live, where the historic cities are located, and where most touristic activity takes place. This is the first new map on Russia by anyone for years!
