Moscow (pronounced /ˈmɒskoʊ/) is a city in northern Idaho, situated along the Washington/Idaho border. It is the most populous city and county seat of Latah County[3] and the home of the University of Idaho, the land grant institution and primary research university for the state. Eight miles (12 km) west is Pullman, Washington and Washington State University, also a land grant college.

While the university is the dominant employer in Moscow, the city also serves as an agricultural and commercial hub for the Palouse region. The population was 21,291 at the 2000 census, with a 2008 estimate of 23,131.[2]

Moscow is the principal city in the Moscow, Idaho Micropolitan Statistical Area, which includes Latah County. Moscow is the birthplace of writer Carol Ryrie Brink and singer Josh Ritter.

Along with the rest of northern Idaho, Moscow resides in the Pacific Time Zone. The elevation of its city center is 2,579 feet (786 m) above sea level. Major highways serving the city are US-95 (north-south) and Highway 8 (east-west), both of which are routed through Moscow city center.
