A week in Pushchino flew by quickly and imperceptibly, and now we are really thinking about renting an apartment there and moving there for a while. Directly in it, there is nothing special to look at, except estate Pushchino on the Oka and radar installations, but just for life - quiet and calm. Really a very nice town to live in in the summer with a child, if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle.
From the first day we felt how light the air is, and this despite the heat. Usually, when the temperature is above 25 degrees, it becomes impossible to breathe in a big and stuffy city. And although Pushchino is considered a city, it does not cause such a feeling. Rather, a small park in which people built a number of houses, surrounded by forests and fields that can be observed from the windows of high floors. Indeed, everywhere you look, trees grow everywhere, and what is most pleasant for me is that pines are often found among them (in our Butovo, I hardly remember conifers). Therefore, to go for a walk, it is enough to leave the house and walk along the street, and if you want to swim, then 20 minutes on foot and you are by the river. I don't know the truth, how clean the water is in our time in the Oka, but both locals and visitors are splashing there. So summer Pushchino made the most pleasant impressions on us..
What else I personally really like is grass instead of lawns! Or even more precisely - forbs. You immediately feel yourself in the bosom of nature, even if there is a high-rise building nearby.
At 10 o'clock the city almost dies out, which is very unusual. And the best part is that all night long there is silence and you don't hear the nasty roar of the motorcycle. I have nothing against bikers and rides, but the noise at night is really annoying. We are still tolerant, with us Yegor does not hear him, but what is it like for parents whose small children wake up from every knock.
There were also some drawbacks, which, I'm afraid, are inherent in all cities except capitals - we are talking about roads and sidewalks. The asphalt here is, to put it mildly, so-so, and periodically turns into gravel, although this is inconvenient, most likely, only for pedestrians with wheelchairs. Ours turned out to be completely unprepared for such conditions because of its small plastic wheels, and the crystal vase (as we call Egor) stubbornly did not want to sleep, bouncing on all the irregularities. Also, in places of exits from courtyards and pedestrian crossings, there are no such familiar exits. And you know what is the most interesting? After all, if it were not for a small child, then I would never have known about such difficulties, I simply would have passed and not noticed, not to mention taking a picture of it. Apparently, just like our officials, it does not occur to them that there are colossal traffic jams in Moscow. Yeah.
Also rate «wealth» and the mores of the city can be found on its entrances. We have not seen others, so I am posting photos of ours. Perestroika and the 90s are immediately remembered, then it was like that for many in Moscow ...
Naturally, in such a short time it is difficult to understand the atmosphere of the place and understand how and how people live here. But I suppose that, as in the whole Moscow region, the situation is about the same: most go to Moscow to work, and on weekends peacefully (I hope so) drink beer and grill barbecue. I wonder what it is like there in winter, what is the leisure of the local population ...
