    My Hometown - Zelenograd (Зеленоград)



    Zelenograd
    (lit. Green City) was founded in 1958 and planned as center of electronic technology. Zelenograd is one of the administrative parts of Moscow - Zelenograd Administrative Okrug (ZelAO). It is located 37 kilometers (23 mi) from Moscow along Leningrad highway.

    Zelenograd was built de novo on a previously empty, forested place. The Skhodnya River forms three ponds within the precincts of city: School Lake, Small and Large City Pond.

    Zelenograd was one of the most powerful centers of electronics, microelectronics and computer industry in the USSR, and it still plays a similar role in modern Russia. It was developed as a reflection of the California Silicon Valley. Before 1989 Zelenograd was a de-facto closed city in some aspect: it was prohibited to take photos in the central parts of the city, near the plants, teaching and research facilities and the foreigners were not admitted into the city.
    Zelenograd is home to the Moscow Institute of Electronic Technology (MIET), which is largest organization of city.

    In 1988, Zelenograd incorporated the former village of Kryukovo, one of the important sites during the Battle of Moscow (October 1941 – January 1942). Several monuments to the Defenders of Moscow and the heroes of the Great Patriotic War are located in Zelenograd and the surrounding area, the most famous of which is the Shtyki (Bayonet) Memorial, from which the remains of the Unknown Soldier were taken for reinterment at the Kremlin Wall in Moscow.

    Молодцы, хороший клип сняли!
    Очень понравилось большое количество зелени. Не люблю "лысые" города.

    BappaBa, what a great video! Now the only problem is, I have no idea what the buildings, parks, memorials are that I am looking at. If you feel up to it, would you go through the video and take the time marks and then tell me (and others) what we are looking at? Pretty please

    :21, the building complex is
    :27, the two building complexes are
    :38, the building complex is
    :40, the building complex is
    :42, the church is and the lake (pond) is
    I only speak two languages, English and bad English.

    I just thought I'd mention this, so that you may avoid any embarrasing situations:

    The word you are looking for is puck.
    The word puke actually means рвота.

    Nice to learn about your hometown though.

    А вот меня Зеленоград бесит. Не обижайся, Варавва, но правда бесит. Ну какого, блин, фига, у вас не улицы, как у всех нориальных людей, а какие-то районы? 4-й район, 28-й дом, 5-й корпус - вот типичный Зеленоградский адрес.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    Типичный адрес вообще без дома. =) Например: 124460, Москва, Зеленоград, корп. 112, кв 10
    Не знаю как так случилось, но у нас только корпуса, домов нет. По первым цифрам определяется номер района (112 - 1-ый район, 801 - 8-ой район, 1804 - 18-ый район). У нас есть 2 главных проспекта (Центральный и Панфиловский) и море всяких аллей (Фруктовая, Сосновая, Яблоневая, Солнечная и т.п.) Но названиями почти никто не пользуется, местным проще объяснить так: "этот дом в 3-ем районе у флейты" или "это в 1-ом районе недалеко от Электрона". Такая вот реальность. =)
