  • So, under the distribution of antitank hedgehogs, established in honor of Moscow's heroic defenders of the forty-first. You can see them almost any tourist, who arrived it is handed to the capital through air Harbor. However, for this you need to get to the city by express train and by bus or taxi. Or just take a taxi. In General so that auto and through Khimki on the Leningrad Highway. Vyvorachivaem, then, Sheremetyevo and immediately, almost immediately and see the monument along the road. As a guideline, you can keep shopping centre "mega". He next, it's big, it's impossible not to notice. By the way, we hopped to the monument only when there was a lot of time before the plane home. And decided to come up early, like it is for "Mega". In fact, the monument without the frills. Three welded gromozeki welded seam, three on each zhelezjake. That's pretty much all there is to it. But in this particular case, the criticism is not at all appropriate. Because here marked feat, and given a tribute to heroes.

The Memorial was unveiled at the entrance to the capital, at the site where the Nazis got a fierce backlash. During the defense of Moscow "hedgehogs" were made of steel beams, which were intended for the construction of the Palace of the Soviets. "Hedgehogs" in Memorial compositions were made of iron, are established on the basis of stone and concrete. Before installing the monument was held on draining swampy soil, which for bolshej stability were hammered into piles. In the composition of the monument in khimki-three anti-tank "hedgehog" with a height of six meters, a stone slab with a map on it but the defence of Moscow and a quote from the summary of the Soviet Information Bureau that defenders of the capital went into a counteroffensive, as well as the stele made of granite. It shows the soldiers and workers, who fought against the fascists. In 2011, was undertaken comprehensive restoration of the monument, and in 2015-m was installed 3D lights.
