Office Center "Dmitrov Posad, built in 1988, became the" first sign
"swept Dmitrov wave of historical pastiches. But this "ninth wave" stylization occurred in
2004 when we celebrated the 850 anniversary of Dmitrov.
There are, for example, "Old" gates were built in trees. We should 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 which have remained in poor condition, began to look even worse.
Here and there, instead of lattices built prop fences. High enough to hide the slums, so full "Potemkin villages" failed.
Coterminous with trees unsightly Soviet factory tint only on the outside. On the shafts were built fake fence (apparently to cover up this "inside out"), but not completed.
But erected fake (sorry for the repetition of the word, but nothing can be done) bronze bridge and two horseshoes. Sculptor - Alexander Rukavishnikov.
Another built a few small sculptures on the pillars near the transition across the street Semeniuk. At a decent asphalt around them money, probably not enough ....
But a lot of sculptures.
A pit in the pavement - even more.
No, the sculpture still, probably more. This photo shows only a small part compositions on Kropotkin Street, representing the citizens of Dmitrov XIX century. Sculptor - all the same Rukavishnikov.
That's one of those sculptures closer. In the background - trees.
And who's this? Especially one with a huge bald head? And it is not somewhere on the outskirts, and near Cathedral of the Assumption ...
This Cyril and Methodius, and the head of one of them just seems bald: Sculptor (same Rukavishnikov) for some reason has not completed a hair on his head.
That is "inspired" person at one of rukavishnikovskih figures.
But as this figure holds (more precisely, drops) book.
And this big-and short-legged dwarf - Prince Yuri Dolgoruky, the founder of Dmitrov. Sculptor ... guess? Yes, the same Alexander Rukavishnikov. Often, very often have to repeat the name in connection with the 850-year anniversary, has transformed the historic center of tasteless dummy. In fairness, we note that Rukavishnikov worked not one, but in a creative collaboration with architect Rostislav Nara.
As always, in the form of "branded rukavishnikovskaya spirituality.
A gesture of the right hand of the statue of Prince whether by accident or specially repeats ...
... Gesture of his right hand placed in front of the statues of Lenin. Only the latter proportions more appropriate ...
There is another monument. Kropotkin. Of course, on Kropotkin Street, that is, there is, the shafts. Sculptor ... guess?
All this "theater of the absurd sculpture" companions to nearby the Three Bears ...
... And the two elk.
And the Monastery of Sts - again Rukavishnikov again "Jubilee" in 2004. With us the sculptor carved this time? I do not Tartar-Mongols whether (judging by the fur-trimmed hats, light spears and small dlinnogrivym steppe beast) are going to conquer Russia? No, it is the 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. Do not passed the cup and Dmitrov. On photo - Kropotkin Street. This is not about the historical center, this historic center.
Very symbolic: that's a public reception the Governor of Moscow region on the street Lira Nicolas ...
This villa is next to her ...
Here's another villa next to it, but on the other side. Just like in the "new Russian" cottage communities, even the inscription "beware of the dog!" In stock. Only this vicious dog barking from under the high dark fence is not in the cottage settlement, and in the heart of Dmitrov.
Right next to the ramparts constructed "family cafe. Even though it was soon after construction and does not become a cereal restaurant, it is still the historical appearance of the street this building Kropotkin put it mildly, does not decorate.
Probably, road builders will recall that the Dmitrov - historic city, and put the asphalt "cultural layer" without destroying the previous (st. Minin).
But that's the roadway of streets in such a "layering" steadily rises. Accordingly, the nearby old (more precisely, historical) house as ever "fail" and become very uncomfortable to stay. And sooner or later the question arises: do not build it on their site (in this case on the street Minin) anything new?
For example, a new building here, "crushing" even the big houses of the Brezhnev era?
The result: proudly rose in an unprecedented height of cranes (view from the street. Semeniuk toward the street. Zagorskogo). What there will soon be constructed that navisnet above the center of Dmitrov?
