Places to visit in Watertown. Languages: ru, he, en

Watertown was one of the first colonies founded by pioneers up the Charles River. Over time, it became an important industrial centre. The buildings of the American arsenal - institutions of the US military industry - stand here today. However, a notorious story is associated with the city. In 2013, at one of the most important annual events in the Boston metropolis - the Boston Marathon, a terrorist attack took place. The police searched for the criminals for two days on 18 and 19 April. At the time, advanced photo scaling technology helped to identify criminals. Two terrorists suspected were tracked down in Watertown. Unfortunately, they entered into a shootout with the police on this very street. One of the two terrorists of Chechen origin, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was seriously wounded and later died. His brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was soon tracked hiding in a boat parked on a track up the street.
