Abstract: It is shown that, for every closed oriented surface $ M$ of genus $ g$ with an arbitrary Riemann metric, there exists a metric graph of genus at most $ g$ such that the Gromov-Hausdorff distance between $ M$ and $ \Gamma$ does not exceed $ C\sqrt{{\mathrm{Vol}}M}$, where $ C$ depends only on $ g$.
