Moskovskii Zhurnal


(Moscow Journal), a Russian monthly literary journal published by N. M. Karamzin from 1791 to 1792 (eight issues). Among its contributors were N. M. Karamzin, G. R. Derzhavin, M. M. Kheraskov, and V. V. Kapnist.

Moskovskii zhurnal adopted a sentimentalist position. It was among the first Russian journals to publish reviews, critical articles, and theater critiques on a regular basis. The republication of Moskovskii zhurnal in 1801–03 was a success.
