July 12

As for the number of free Wi-Fi hot spots, the Russian capital has overtaken New York, London and Tokyo and entered the TOP 3 world leaders, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC).

"In 2018, Moscow almost doubled the number of public Wi-Fi hot spots and approached Seoul, which occupies the second position now," the experts noted.

Besides, Moscow ranked first by the area of green natural and recreational sites per capita. It should be also noted that 90 percent of Muscovites live within walking distance of recreation areas.

Over 60 percent of Moscow residents live within 500 m from cultural and leisure facilities, which ranks Moscow fifth among the largest world megacities.

As for the total length of equipped bike lines, Moscow is still 11th, but from 2011 to 2018 their length has increased ninefold. According to experts, 'My District' program will further expand the bike line network.

Moscow ranks second in terms of commissioning street and road network, exceeded only by Beijing. However, unlike Beijing and most other cities, Moscow has been steadily scaling up road construction over the past five years.

Experts have also noted the density of the rail network in Moscow that has surpassed all other cities the study mentions.

The density of the metro network and the number of stations in Moscow have ranked third, but the large-scale metro development program, including the Moscow Central Diameters, will make the city a leader in the future.
