Peremilovskaya Vysota (height) is a place in the village Peremilovo on the bank of the Moscow Canal, one and a half kilometers far from Dmitrov. A bloody battle of Russian troops with fascist invaders took place at this height in winter 1941. The Germans, who occupied Yakhroma by the end of November, were planning to intrude Moscow but were stopped in Peremilovo. Battles in this area lasted for about 10 days. On December 5, 1941 the Soviet troops managed to repel the enemy's attack using an armored train in the battlefield engagement.
Peremilovskaya Vysota became the easternmost point reached by the Germans moving to Moscow. Here there was the first turning point in the course of the war. The breakthrough of the Soviet army began from here. Today this boundary represents a slope stretching for two kilometers along the canal with a varying relief and the highest point of almost 215 meters. A 28-meter high memorial appeared at the top of the Peremilovskaya Vysota 25 years after the battle: a soldier standing on a pedestal with bas-reliefs, carrying out an attack and holding an automatic weapon over his head.
