Шлюз № 6 канала имени Москвы

The Stalin Empire-style airlock is an important landmark from which we will begin our journey. In his chamber on the channel named after Moscow the ships rise and fall to a height of 8 meters. The airlock was built in 1937. There are figures on its towers, and above the lower gate there is a pedestrian bridge covered with a fencing net. The monumental structure is impressive in scale. It is possible to see the process of shiplocking from the end of April to the middle of November.

Дмитровский кремль

If to believe chronicles, the first outpost on a place [of the Dmitrov Kremlin]( has been based still by prince Jury Dolgoruky in 1154. The citadel was many times destroyed and destroyed by enemy troops, but some of its remains have survived to this day. The Kremlin surrounds the rampart 990 meters long and 7 to 9 meters high. It is believed to have been created in the 12th-13th centuries. The Assumption Cathedral is located in its heart. And the most elegant building here is Elizabeth Church of 1898. It's worth paying attention to the poster: the Kremlin hosts a lot of interesting events!
