If I'm standing in a city and want to move to the nearby zone does that cost me a move action or is the city and the zone the same thing (seems strange if that's the case)

The key concept is that each area is all "one place"....the multiples names of cities, ports, and resources within an area are simply attributes of that single area. You could eliminate all the names of places within each area and have no effect on the game, as long as you still described the overall area as having or not having a port, having or not having a naval base, having or not having a city of x population, having or not having resources of y level, etc, etc.

In other words, one movement point per area, regardless of what's in the area.

The only two exceptions that I know of to this are that:
1) Ocean areas, take two movements points, unlike sea zone areas which take only one and that
2) the Urals are essentially an off-map area reachable only by strategic movement.

As Mike says, the map is divided into "areas". Areas may contain cities, ports or other features, but it is the areas which are occupied not the features.

Having said that, certain features, like ports or naval bases may alter what can occupy the relevant area, but bear in mind it is an area control game. If you control the area, you control the features.

I was initially very confused about this myself. As the force pool lists the Russian Fortress starting in Sevastopol. Which at the time I didn't yet understand.

However, I recognized areas like Scappa Flow and Gibraltar have the large Naval Base symbol, meaning they are an area, that is a naval base. While Sevastopol is a naval base in an area. The size of the naval base symbol is what helped me understand the difference.

Thanks for the replies! So that means that taking the zone of Moscow means the city has fallen? That simplifies thing a whole lot, especially when it comes to map size which is very small if one is distinguish between different cities in an area that in itself is very small.

Yup, control of an area includes everything within the borders of that area.
