This landmark of Mytishchi is the left tributary of the Moscow River. Until the 18th century, Yauza was an integral part of the trade route from Moscow to the Klyazma basin. For 150 years, the keys in the upper reaches of the river were the basis of the city’s first centralized water supply system. From the first half of the 18th century, the coast began to be actively built up. The course was blocked by a lot of mills and dams, which had a strong effect on water pollution. In 1930, it was leveled and almost doubled. Granite embankments were built along the river, and bridges were built across it. In 1991, the entire undeveloped valley was declared a natural monument.
This landmark of Mytishchi is an artificial reservoir. It was built in 1937 after the construction of a hydropower plant on the river Vyaz. The complex includes a dam with a length of 707 meters, bottom drainage and catchment. The area of the reservoir reaches about 12 square kilometers. Its width is 2 kilometers, its length is about 6.
This attraction Mytischi, the photo of which you simply must bring from this trip, appeared thanks to Field Marshal Prozorovsky. The residence was named after him. The manor later changed a large number of owners. The last owner had the honor of being a Russian banker and businessman Rybushkin. He lived in a residence until 1917.
With each new owner, the Nikolskoye-Prozorovskoye estate became more and more ennobled and enlarged. There appeared greenhouses, an artificial pond, a Gothic lookout tower and a grotto. From time immemorial the architectural style of the manor was Baroque. Here was a house and the church of St. Nicholas. The temple survived to our time, and the house was destroyed in 1930. After more than 20 years, it was partially restored by replacing the ceiling. The church was restored more than once, while completely changing the bell tower.
Church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin
A rare beauty monument of architecture is another attraction of Mytischi, the description of which you will find below. Very interesting here are the stairs, similar to the entrance to the fabulous teremok. The upper platforms are decorated with beautiful tents.
The stone cathedral was built in 1677 to replace the wooden one. During the French wars he suffered greatly. In Soviet times, it was used as a warehouse, meat workshop, and dormitory. In 1989, the cathedral was returned to the Orthodox community.
Church of the Trinity
This landmark of Mytishchi is located on the site of the former Don Church, built here in 1894-1896. In the 1930s it was closed, and it began to gradually collapse. In 1981, nothing remained of the former church.

Alley of veterans
This landmark of Mytishchi is one of the most picturesque streets of the city, often called the boulevard or the square. In 2003, its improvement began: the paths were laid out with tiles, green plantings were put in order. The name "Alley of Veterans" was given to this street due to its location in the neighborhood, known to residents as "Voenka". In 2012, a monument was installed in memory of military signalmen.
This sailing-paddle ship is a symbol of Mytishchi. The rook is depicted on the flag and the emblem of the city. It is a symbol of the land route between the rivers Klyazma and Yauza.The history of the formation of the city began in the period of Mytishchi portage in the 12th-14th centuries. It began from the rook location and had a length of about 7 kilometers. From here, vessels were dragged from the river into the river with the help of round logs. From this place the goods were redirected to Klyazma, where they continued on their way. It was here that collected duty from people and ships. Such a place used to be called "mytische", which formed the basis of the name of the city. The decorative boat was set here in 2010. It is very popular among tourists and residents of Mytishchi.
Museum of Zhostovo Decorative Painting Factory
This museum at the factory in the village of Zhostovo is the only one of its kind in the whole world. Here you can see unique examples of painting that appeared at the beginning of the 19th century.
