Veteran Alley

In the center of the city, in a small square, there is an Avenue of Veterans alley. Initially, a heavily neglected park was located at this place. In 2003, a monument was opened here to the commander A.V. Suvorov. Since that time, a gradual improvement of the territory began.

Here they laid paths from paving slabs, arranged a playground and planted new trees and shrubs. In 2012, on the Veterans Alley, another monument was erected “To military signalmen, scientists, creators of military equipment for their military and labor achievement”. The sculptor V. Sergeant-Schulz worked on its creation.

Gradually, the square acquired a modern look, and the alley increased to 200 meters. It is currently a favorite vacation spot for families with children.

Donskoy temple

In the small village of Perlovka, which is currently part of Mytishchi, there was the Don Temple (in English Don Temple). It was founded in 1852 according to the project of P.P. Zykov. The construction was carried out thanks to large donations from the owners of local lands - the Perlovs noble family.

In 1938, the church was closed by order of the Soviet authorities, and in 1981 the church was completely destroyed. In 1999, it was decided to erect a temporary wooden church in the name of the Holy Life-Giving Trinity. After 2 years, services and sacraments were already held in it.

The church was supposed to receive believers for a while until a permanent stone temple was built. In 2014, the construction of the Don Church began. The architect V Mamyshev worked on the creation of his project. Currently, construction work is ongoing in it.
