Sister Cities of the World

Sister cities of Chekhov, Moscow Oblast

Chekhov (Russian: Че́хов) is a town and the administrative center of Chekhovsky District of Moscow Oblast, Russia. Before 1954, it was named Lopasnya (Лопа́сня), after the Lopasnya River. Population: 60,720 (2010 Census); 72,917 (2002 Census); 59,206 (1989 Census); 56,000 (1985).

On the outskirts of Chekhov lies the Davidov Hermitage, reputedly the richest monastery in Russia. It contains many churches from the 17th and 18th centuries.

Near Chekhov is the Russian General Staff wartime command post, buried deep underground, which is almost certainly linked directly to the Kremlin by an underground rail link — the 'Moscow Metro 2' line operated by the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB).
