The following text was translated from the Russian original by the computer program

So it can be used only for general introduction.
Hotel-office centre "Dmitrov Posad, built in 1988, was the "first swallow" swept Dmitrov wave of historical stylization. But this "ninth wave" stylisations occurred in 2004, when we celebrated the 850 anniversary of Dmitrov.
There are, for example, "old" gates were built in trees. Do not waste time on the arguments as a "structure" corresponds to the historical truth.
Many of the buildings inside the walls to the anniversary of "licking" and enclosed bars...
At the same time those buildings that were in bad condition, began to look even worse.
In some places instead of lattices built prop fences. High enough to hide the slums, so full of "Potemkin villages" failed.
Neighboring trees unsightly Soviet factory tint only from the outside. On the shafts were built fake fence (apparently to cover up this "inside out"), but not completed.
But erected fake (I apologize for the repetition of the words, but nothing can be done) bronze bridge and two horseshoes. Sculptor Alexander Rukavishnikov.
Another built a few small sculptures on the pillars near the crossing of the street Semeniuk. On a good asphalt around them money, probably not enough....
But a lot of sculptures.
A pit in the pavement - even more.
sculptures still, probably more. This photo shows only a small part of the
Here is one of those sculptures closer. In the background - shafts.
And who is this? Especially one with a huge bald head? And it is not somewhere on the edge, and near Cathedral of the assumption of...
This Cyril and Methodius, and the head of one of them only seems bald: sculptor (same Rukavishnikov) somehow never worked hair on his head.
That is "inspired" person at one of rukavishnikovskih figures.
But as this figure holds (or rather, drops) book.
And this big-and short - legged dwarf-Prince Yuri Dolgoruky, the founder of Dmitrov. Sculptor... Right? Yes, the same Alexander Rukavishnikov. Often, very often have to repeat the name in connection with the 850-year anniversary, has transformed the historic city centre in tasteless dummy. In fairness, we note that Rukavishnikov worked not one, but in a creative collaboration with the architect Rostislav Nara.
As always, in the form of "branded rukavishnikovskaya spirituality.
And the gesture of the right hand of the statue of Prince whether by accident or specially repeats...
...The right hand's gesture located in front of the statue of Lenin. Only the latter proportions more appropriate...
is another monument. Kropotkin, is pre. Of course, on
The whole "theatre sculptural absurd" complement nearby the three bears...
...And two moose.
And the monastery of STS - again Rukavishnikov again "jubilee" in 2004. We the sculptor carved this time? I do not Tartar-Mongols Lee (judging by the fur-trimmed hats, light spears and small dlinnogrivym steppe horses) are going to conquer Russia? No, it princes Boris and Gleb.
These are the contrasts can be seen near the historic center (Minin street).
The invasion of "new Russian" mansions in the historic private building - alas, for the cities in the Moscow case is normal. Not passed the Cup and Dmitrov. On photo - Kropotkin street. This is not about the historic center, this historic center.
It is very symbolic: here's public reception of the Governor of Moscow region on the street Lira Nikolskaya...
This Villa is next to it...
Here's another Villa next to it, but on the other hand. All as in "new Russian" cottage settlements, even saying ' beware of the dog!". Only this vicious dog barking from under the high dark fence is not in the cottage, but in the heart of Dmitrov.
Right next to the ramparts constructed "family cafe. Even if it was soon after construction and does not become a cereal restaurant, anyway historical appearance Kropotkinskaya street this building, to put it mildly, not decorate.
Probably, road builders remember that Dmitrov is a historic city, and put the asphalt "cultural layer"without destroying the previous (Minina street).
But that's the roadway streets in such a "layering" steadily rises. Accordingly, the nearby old (more precisely, for historical house as ever "fail" and become very uncomfortable to stay. And sooner or later the question arises: does not build it on their site (in this case on the street Minin) something new?
For example, a new building here, "crushing" even the big houses of the Brezhnev era?
And here is the result: proudly lifted up to unprecedented heights cranes (view from the street of Semenyuk in a side street of the Zagorsk). There will soon be constructed that will hang over the historical centre of Dmitrov?
