Photographer's Note

Prospekt Mira (Avenue of Peace) is the historic part of Vladikavkaz, together with adjoining streets.
Vladikavkaz has increased greatly in recent years, new streets, new squares and parks appeared here, but still Prospekt Mira is a favorite place of rest the townspeople.
Prospekt Mira was pawned as an urban "Broadway" is not immediately. Initially, Lenin Street (former street Dvoryanskaya former Loris Melikovskaya) was much more prestigious. Prospekt (Boulevard) was defeated on the orders of the fortress commandant, Major-General PP Nesterov, so at first bore his name. Then, this Prospekt has been called the Alexander Prospekt in honor of Tsar-Liberator Alexander II.
Prospekt Mira has no similar houses, each distinguished by its originality. Some of these homes have distinctive architectural details, other houses have a beautiful balcony grilles or memorable steeples and turrets. But all of these homes are made in the style of "modern". Office buildings was not on the avenue, there were hotels, shops and private homes. It now remains the same.
Prospekt Mira is a pedestrian zone. The length of the avenue is 1 kilometer.
