The Imperiia Project: a spatial history of the Russian Empire

locator map note

The placemarks on this map show the location(s) of provincial towns (administrative seats). Showing the city of Moscow on a map is not at all the same thing as showing you the boundaries of Moscow province. Here we are simply using Google Maps to help you put location in rough perspective.

The coordinates are all drawn from They describe the centroid of the space of the current (modern) town location and therefore need to be taken with a grain of salt in terms of their accuracy as markers of historical places.
