""4 Crowns and Crosses"" Dmitrov by Pablos_new

Dmitrov Travel Guide: 56 reviews and 200 photos

Many many years ago in 1281 tree Russian princes came here with their armies for a battle - Dmitry from Pereyaslavl, Mikhail from Tver, and Daniil from Moscow. They stand infront of each other 5 days but then agreed for peace and returned back to their towns. Later in 1301 four princes - Daniil of Moscow, Mikhail of Tver, Ivan of Pereyaslavl and Andrey of Gorodets - held a "summit" here, peacefully agreed on all there problems and had a big "banquet" ;-))) In favour of this diplomatic event 4 crowns were placed on the arms of Dmirtov.

Today some historical things are very popular in Russia and on big events and holidays one can see many white flags with golden crowns in the streets of Dmitrov.

    I was in Dmitrov at Christmas 1990. I was involved in opeing of the church pictured here. It had been closed 70 years. The opening was a miracle. It was for disabled worshippers

    Very intriguing intorduction into that land. When you mention the year 1201 that becomes very clear to me that Russia contained many voices which have spoken to our future.

    It is not forgotten that it was at Dmitrov the German advance on Moscow was defeated by Zhukov's counteroffensive.
