    It is Moscow region (north).

    JB: "about an hour or so north of Moscow in Dmitrov".

    Wow, on the first three pictures you can see your nice house!

    Actually the city looks pretty nice from the pics, they have restored their old buildings recently?

    Our governor is working hard to make our city the best and most beautiful in Russia. He has made restoration and repairs of all historic and public places a priority over the last few years.

    It looks very nice and peaceful. Would it be possible to see what's exactly on the picture but during Fall and Winter?

    JB, nice! Thanks for the pictures. Looks like an idyllic place. I hope that you are happy over there. If it is not too much to ask, would you mind telling us something about your daily life when you have a chance? How is your Russian?

    That isn't you in the first picture, is it?

    Yeah, how are you adapting to your new Russian circumstances?

    You can see me (my shadow) in balloon picture #4!

    Adapting to life in Russia is easy until I get homesick around the 3-4th month there. I start watching stupid old American movies on TV and craving p-nut butter. But when I return to America (for business and family) I get homesick for Russia after only 2 weeks!

    From one article about Dmitrov:


    Впервые я навестил этот город очень давно, когда его центр был еще застроен старыми деревянными домишками.
    For the first time I visited the city a long time ago, when its center was still built up with small old wooden houses.
    Дело было зимой.
    It happened in winter.
    От вокзала я пошел по прямой заснеженной улице, зная, что где-то впереди меня встретят кремль, древние соборы - город был основан тем же Юрием Долгоруким в 1154 году.
    From the railway station I walked along straight snow-covered street, knowing that somewhere ahead I would be met by the Kremlin, ancient cathedrals - the city was founded by Yurii Dolgorukii in 1154.
    До сих пор помню, как поразили меня возникшие в конце улицы огромные синие купола с крестами и золотыми звездами.
    I still remember how I was amazed to see the huge blue domes with crosses and gold stars appearing in the end of the street.
    Они как бы парили в небе - стены собора полностью заслонял покрытый снегом земляной вал Кремля.
    As if they lived in the sky - the walling of the cathedral were hidden behind the snow-covered earthen rampart of the Kremlin.
    Дмитров - один из самых маленьких (в его исторической части) и самых оригинальных «дотатарских» городов Подмосковья.
    Dmitrov is one of the most small (in its historical part) and most original “pre-Tatar” cities of Moscow region.
    Высоченный вал кремля окружает территорию диаметром метров 300.
    Lofty rampart of the citadel (Kremlin) is encircled a territory about 300 metres in diameter.
    Древние города обычно строились на горе, на обрывистых берегах рек (вспомните тот же Владимир).
    Ancient cities usually were built on a hill, on steep river banks (remember, for example, Vladimir city).
    Дмитровский кремль сооружен в низине, и это долго меня удивляло, пока в одной из книжек я не нашел тому объяснение.
    Dmitrov Kremlin was constructed in lowland, that had surprised me long time, until I found an explanation for that in one book.
    Действительно, кремль сознательно был построен поодаль от окружавших его с трех сторон холмов.
    Actually, the Kremlin was knowingly built at some distance from the hills surrounding it from the three directions.
    Более того, его воздвигли посреди болота, находившегося здесь в те времена.
    And what is more, it was erected in the middle of the bog lying here in that time.
    Оно служило дополнительным препятствием для нападающих, а размеры болота были достаточны, чтобы стрелы, пускаемые в защитников, не могли его перелетать.
    The bog served as an additional obstacle against the attacking, and size of the bog sufficed that arrows shooting in defenders could not fly across it.
    Сколько было положено трудов, чтобы возвести в таком месте циклопические валы, которым нет равных в Подмосковье, можно только догадываться.
    We may only guess how many troubles were taken to raise in such a place the cyclopean walls, which have no equal in Moscow region.
    На валы, осевшие за 850 лет, и сейчас нелегко забраться, зато с них открывается замечательный вид на Историческую площадь с современными зданиями универмага и новой гостиницы, на городской рынок, заполняющий все пространство вплоть до реки Яхромы, а точнее, до проходящего чуть ближе канала им. Москвы.
    On the walls sunken during the 850 years…


    Сквозь земляной вал в кремль ведут три прохода.
    Three passage-ways lead through the earthen rampart in the Kremlin.
    Один из них реставрирован под старину: деревянные крепостные ворота, бревенчатый частокол по верху вала.
    One of them is restored in imitation of olden time: wooden fortress gates, timbered palisade on the top of the wall.
    (
    Хм.. Оказывается, ‘палисад’ (частокол) происходит не от слова ‘сад’ плюс ‘поли’ - сад, умноженный до такой степени, что образует сплошной забор, и даже не от ‘пали сад’, ибо там засел неприятель.

    Палисад [фр. palissade < лат. palus кол]
    )
    А возле центрального входа в кремль, появились памятник Юрию Долгорукому, фонтаны, пешеходная зона.
