The appearance of some Russian cities seems to be a reflection of their name. So, probably, the city of Dzerzhinsk in its strict Soviet architecture, named after the "iron Felix", continues these traditions. Just look at a large number of monuments of Soviet reality, as well as the characteristic houses of culture and theaters. Let's talk about where Dzerzhinsk is and what interesting things can be found in this city.

Dzerzhinsk - a city in the Nizhny Novgorod region, located on the left bank of the Oka. Being the second largest city in this region, it is not so far from the capital, Nizhny Novgorod. No more than 35 km separates them. Nevertheless, the city of Dzerzhinsk was not always.

Initially, it was a working village, on the territory of which several associations for working with acids and explosives operated. Further, with the acquisition of the status of the city, Dzerzhinsk gained momentum in production and already supplied the army and the front with shells.Until now, the chemical industry in this region is the main industry, which employs the local population. In this regard, there are various environmental difficulties that require additional study and control.

In addition to its industrial history, the city of Dzerzhinsk is known for the Shukhov towers on the Oka. But lately we can discover how they are being destroyed one by one, and not even by the force of time, but by human activities. And after all such constructions few cities of Russia are awarded.
