Description: Have you ever had that kind of feeling when looking at a map: there's a road ends abruptly at some point (or becomes a dashed line), while it seems reasonable to continue it further to some point?

Have you ever had that kind of feeling when looking at a map: there's a road ends abruptly at some point (or becomes a dashed line), while it seems reasonable to continue it further to some point?

I often thought of finding a direct road from Moscow to Ivanovo, because Sholkovskoye Shosse directs exactly there if you think. There's no use in studying maps (Yandex.Maps), you can tell nothing this way. Community-drawn one is actually more precise.

I would then find out that there had existed a busy Stromynsky road to Suzdal, and I actually have driven on it. But I didn't start with Stromynka street, but with bypassing a traffic jam on Shyolkovskoe Shosse via

A fact that people were attracted by a phrase “Lightbulbs are here” is telling itself a lot. Lightbulbs, wow.

By the way, here lies Akulovsky water canal, one of Stalin's buildings for thirsty Muscovites. It's better not to shoot it closer, though it's an interesting object.

Everything is very dull north-east to Moscow. There are mostly narrow roads framed by fences and traffic jams between Mytishi. Korolyov and Sholkovo (which was left aside).

Kotovsky street. Zagoryanskoye urban settlement. EMERCOM. ← Korolyov; Sholkovo, Multon factory →

Stromynsky road Sholkovskoye Shosse, where one could witness the last year of the railway crossing, which was hated by anyone who ever took that road. A flyover was under construction.

“I want to devote my song to you!” (This was a pale try to translate Chernogolovka’s hymn, by the way)

Chernogolovka’s intellect is our precious wealth! No science city’s beautiful as that! WE ARE CHERNOGOLOVKA.

There is a problem with Chernogolovka: if I try to say something bad, Misha Lisetsky (who took me to Chengdu. Cologne and other remarkable places) will be offended, and as for good. Whatever, really, I have nothing to say about this city (except for that the signs have problems with typography).

We go further. By the way, the names “Fryanovo”, “Fryazevo” and “Fryazino” originate from the word that was used to call Italians constructing Moscow Kremlin .

And some gardening stuff (doesn’t deserve a picture). In short, everything to relax in a civilized manner on dachas.

A flyover is being maintained at the city’s entrance, but for some reason nobody runs to see a unique phenomenon: a traffic jam in Kirzhach.

The square with palace of culture is usually representative: if there’s nothing to see here, there’s nothing to see anywhere.

I’ve been to Kaluga and Torzhok. it’s more interesting there. Here we have a simple old Russian town.

By the way, the glass holders for Russian Railways trains are made in Kolchugino. But I haven’t found a shop to buy one.

Yuriev-Polsky central undertaker’s office. Well coordinated personnel, funeral at the customer’s absence, digging a grave, body carrying-out, burial, coffins, wreaths, ribbons, crosses. Economy funerals. 24h body delivery to a morgue.

Let’s compare this architecture to that formal hastily sticked together ugliness. It has been put here, and now one cannot demolish it (the patriots will peck to death), but this cannot stay as well, it’s shameful.

Yuriev-Polsky was my longest stop (not considering Ivanovo). But this is the last town to be on an obvious route.

At some point I realized, that I was going into a dead end. I turned round. A satnav suggested I’d use a gravel road used by huge Topol-M intercontinental ballistic missile mobile launchers. I refused politely. It turned out that a new stretch of road had been built before, and that was the one I needed: it wasn’t on the map, neither the turn was signed by any means. Before the road had been constructed, there had been no proper road between Yuriev and Gavrilov Posad at all.

It is interesting, that right after the station we drive out to Stromynsky road again. Here a composition of bad brick and welded metal stands, telling that two brothers, Konstantin and Yury, expended 10 thousands of warriors in internecine feuds here.

There are interesting features, but looking at the inhabitants, I didn’t want to get out of the car.

A one-hundred kilometres stretch of the back of beyond was passed; we are coming to civilization and interesting things again.

Do you remember my last impression of the city? Back then, even the monument for revolutionists looked like a pile of scaffolds.

7 years passed. Everything changed. Communist industrialization esthetics were drawn to a proper level.

Proletariat of Moscow, Petersburg and Ivanovo-Voznesenskoye. proved in deed that will yield achievements of the revolution for no price.

Just look at the Ivanovo State University of Chemistry and Technology (aka ChemTech), isn’t it a charm?

Ivanovo, the city of students. Student record-book: 1 st semester, year 1871–2011. Ivanovo is 140 years old. Mark A. Our home city, we are proud of you!

I took a more traditional road via Vladimir on the way back to Moscow. I got into a traffic jam 100 kilometers from Moscow for 20 minutes to let some kind of units pass.

The road was in a poor state, it was a good decision to pass it overnight. But I still got stuck in Balashikha right before Moscow along with commuters.
