    Leisure Center

    The Leisure Center is another obligatory feature of almost all Russian towns since Soviet times. Such buildings usually really look like palaces in classic Greek style with Parthenon portics.

    I witnessed an inauguration of another monument that very day (8th of November 2008 – it was the Dmitrov Day and the feast day of Dmitry Solunsky). This monument is devoted to people who died and were killed in conflicts of the second half of the 20th century and in the beginning of the 21th century (Afganistan, Chechnia etc).

    The building of the city administration (Town Hall) has rather modest appearance. The head of the administration Valery Gavrilov supervises over the region of Dmitrov 18 years. And quite successful!
    In a national competition in 2005 Dmitrov was recognized as the best-run town in Russia.

    Athens in Dmitrov

    I have seen the Greek motives in the form of paintings on walls of a house when I was walking from railway station to the center along the Moskovskaya street. I wondered, what attitude the Athenian Acropolis had to the Russian city of Dmitrov? However the owner of this house decided that the connection is quite evident and represented Parthenon, Erechtheion and the well-known Caryatids on walls of the house.

    Dmitrov was founded among bogs. Yuriy Dolgorukiy thought it was the best protection for the town. That was the cause of Dmitrov's sobriquet "Frog's kingdom". And Dmitrov citizen's nickname was "frogers".

    Nowadays you can find a monument of "Tsarevna the Frog" in the city. (Fountain "Waiting") Not far from there you can find musical fountain "Lily". The author – Alexander Rukavishnikov.

    pic from Internet

    On the way between Moscow and Dmitrov there is museum of the famous Russian tank, T-34.
    Unfortunately I'm not sure how it can be reached by public transport, coz the museum stands directly of the highway (Dmitrovskoe shosse).

    The museum has rather big park of T-34 and its modifications, as well as complete history of creation of the model.

    Stream is a too big word for that. It it is a groove with a tiny rill in it. But enbankment is so great that you can imagine yourself walking in S. Peter. :-)))
