My Town is a very special one. You need to have a special passport to get in there. You can only get this passport if you have property or are a close relative (or spouse) of someone who does on its territory. There is only a handful of such towns in Russia. I meet both conditions; I took a photo of the back of my passport.
Passing by probably the biggest house in my town...
