Moscows: a Place Name Survey

A research team from a high school in Polyarnye Zori, Russia, requested assistance with their interactive map project “Moscows” for a regional student conference in December. Please provide your answers to the survey questions as comments. Your assitance will be highly appreciated. Go global, Nimitz!

1. How many places called Moscow do you know in your state and in your country?
2. Where are these Moscows located?
3. What do you know about the origins of their names?
4. Do you know that there is Moscow in Russia?
5. What do you know about it? List your spontaneous ideas, not research results, please.
