Moscow. Time-exposure image of Moscow, capital city of Russia, by night. The Russian parliamen- tary building is at upper right, beside the wide Arbat Street. Cars are leaving trails of light as they travel over the Arbat Bridge which spans the Moskva or Moscow River. Arbat Street was trans- formed in the 1960s from narrow, winding streets into a broad, modern boulevard. It was intended by the Soviet government to provide a showcase thoroughfare. The street is characterised by blocks of buildings which contain retail outlets, residential apartments, and offices.
