Welcome back!

The old city of Muskav went through major changes in the 1990s. With high population growth steming from Muskav's tradition of education and oppertunity, the City leaders finally got together to bring the beautiful town up to date.

Muskav had hosted professional baseball since 1976. However, the team had been playing in a 43 year old, sub-standard complex. Furthermore, the city's high elevation provided for bad weather unsuitable for baseball. A retractable dome stadium--the first ever built on Syldav Island--broke ground in 1996. Four years later, the park opened it's doors for the first time.

The park is situated between downtown to the north and National University to the south-east.

Buses (and commuter train) were the only source of public transit in Muskav for years. But between 1960-1990, Muskav's popular grew from 67,200 to 103,000 with no signs of slowing.

With narrow streets making rapid bus lines or light rail impractical, the city to the (expensive) step to built a new subway system. Though the city's size didn't warrant the expense, the cost was kept down by utilizing a cut-and-cover method of building. Rather than simply boring a tunnel, the City took the opportunity to rebuilt 100-year old water mains, re-pave streets, and beautify the corridors.

This style metro station (across from the central train depot) is common throughout the City.

The modern-styled station at King's field also serves the west side of National University's campus.

Modernity within tradition: a new tennis court and glass-framed dorms for the University next to 200-year old shops & homes.

General Hospital (1987) and the top of the Star One Tower (1996) changed the city's profile and utility.

Of course, some areas are just as they always were...
