Catalogue Note

This detailed view is of the old city in and around the Kremlin and was published in the Civitates Orbis Terrarum, the first series of printed town plans. The nucleus of Moscow was at the junction of the two rivers shown here, the Moskva and the Neglimnaya, the latter forming a moat on the northern and eastern flanks of the Kremlin.
