Electrougli: Local Pecularities
May 31, 2017 23:40


Electrougli is named after the main town-forming enterprise, Kudinovo “Electrougli” Plant established in 1899.

The town was founded in 1956 and is located in the Gorky direction of the Moscow railway (on the famous “Moscow-Petushki” stretch), far from those places where the Moscow “aristocracy” prefers to settle; so the city and the neighborhood, which is not decorated in any way, produce a depressing impression at first. The building of the above-mentioned plant is partly destroyed, partly rented, asphalt is in cracks, private houses along Tsentralnaya Street have blind fences.

However, pretty soon the town does not seem such a hopeless place anymore. Behind the fences you can sometimes manage to see absolutely stunning examples of wooden architecture in exquisite carved lace. Instead of the expected square with an indispensable granite monument to Lenin, the Central Square adjoins the alley with a memorial to the soldiers of the Great Patriotic War that is devoid of any grandiosity, strict and well-conditioned.

If you turn from the alley to the Shkolnaya Street and walk four hundred meters along it, you can see the main architectural attraction of Electrougli, the Cathedral in the name of the Life-Giving Trinity built at the turn of XIX and XX centuries - a stumpy five-domed church-“ship” with unusual “modern” outlines. If you continue to walk along Tsentralnaya Street, it eventually leads you to the Kamensky pond, on the shores of which the residents of Electrougli prefer to have rest in summer. The pond is relatively clean, some (the most desperate) locals even swim in it.
