Historical Moscow on Google Maps
Old Maps of Moscow has a very large collection of historical maps of the Russian capital.
The site uses Google Maps to help users navigate the historical collection. Users need to click on the Google Map of Moscow to show the location they are interested in viewing. Then they can select from the many historical maps to view the chosen location on their chosen map.
The map collection goes back to 1739 and includes plans, topographic maps, historical aerial photography and much more.
