Moscow (Russian: Москва, Moskva) is the capital city of Russia. It appears in all versions of the game Mario is Missing! In the Nintendo Entertainment System release, the entrance to Moscow is located in the fourth room, alongside the one leading to Montreal. It appears much earlier in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System version, in which it is one of five cities Luigi has to visit in order to defeat Ludwig von Koopa on the first floor, the others being Rome, Beijing, Nairobi and San Francisco. During the events of the game, Moscow is full of Koopa Troopas, and in order to secure the city, Luigi has to visit three landmarks and return one artifact to each that was stolen by the Koopas. The three landmarks are the Kremlin, St. Basil's Cathedral, and the Bolshoi Theater. In the PC version, the Koopas have also robbed two additional landmarks: Lenin's Tomb and the Moscow Metro.
Moscow is also mentioned in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! live-action segment "Captain Lou Is Missing". Officials from the city send Cyndi Lauper a message stating that the missing Lou Albano was nowhere to be found, and request more 8-track tapes. Mario suggests to send them his Jim Nabors tapes.
