Dubna, whose population is almost 70,000, is located on the banks of the Volga river 120 km north of Moscow. No major highways go through Dubna; so it is nicely fitted into beautiful, quiet landscapes made up by the Volga river, the Moscow Reservoir on the Volga formed by a hydropower plant, the Moscow – Volga shipping canal, the Dubna river (the Volga's tributary), a number of smaller rivers, and, of course, forests and fields. Appeasing natural landscapes are within an easy bicycle or skiing trip from any place in Dubna.
At the same time, Dubna is close enough to Moscow for you to be able to leave Dubna early in the morning, spend a whole day in Moscow, and come back to Dubna in the late evening. There is direct railway and bus communication between Dubna and Moscow.
Dubna has no ecologically problematic industry. Rather, it is a hi-tech city.
Dubna is known internationally, first of all, for it is home to one of the world's largest centres of fundamental science: the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR). A number of other enterprises located in Dubna design and produce a wide range of equipment, including that for radiation monitoring, acoustic research, seismology, technology monitoring using radioisotopes, and more. One of Russia's main centres of satellite communication is a real adornment of a pleasant landscape just outside the city.
