Vika, a Russian student who is clearly very fond of her town of Dmitrov sent me this beautiful aerial-view postcard. Vika tells me that the town was founded in 1154 by Prince Yuri Dolgoruky. The prince’s son, Vsevolod was born here and the name of the town can be explained with reference to his son’s patron saint, Saint Demetrius. Shown in the center of this postcard is a monument in honour of the prince. She goes on to tell me that a peculiarity of Dmitrov is an earth mound which is 15 meters high and 960 meters long. Located inside the shaft of this mound is a cathedral as well as a small museum. Thank you Vika for a pretty and very informative postcard!
