16 A Russian Village Deep in The North

A Russian Village Deep in The North

Posted on October 6, 2006 by team


This are photos by Alexandre Korolkov from Russian village “Ustje”.

This village is remarkable. It is located on the far north of Russia, it’s much closer to American Alaska than to any major Russian cities. Temperatures there don’t get higher than 30-40 Fahrenheit even in the summer!

Four hundred years ago a group of Russian people flew far away to North in order to avoid death from the Tsar Ivan. They settled there and those people on the photos – direct descendants.

They lived 400 years among Russian Eskimos people but didn’t assimilate and saved their traditions and Russian language.

    There is no need to get to the far North to see a picture like that. It’s enough to make about 300 kms from Moscow in any direction and you will find thousands villages like that.

    they are seperated comunity and survived surrounding by nature … far away to the north but they have many boats to catch the fish.

    Harmony with nature? Did you see heaps of oil drums lying around? What about the fact that their houses are all made of wood? See any trees? Anywhere? even on the shot that shows the horizon?

    I think you have a pretty loose idea of what nature is.

    do they know Ivan the Terrible is dead? …come on! dont look at my comment like that! maybe they never asked, and nobody ever told them …. what?

    now that is a terrible dude…when he terrified people they ran until there was nowhere alse to run…
    It would be interesting to know who the ancestors were(royals, commoners,religious outcasts)… and lastly …how did they “fly ” …. yes ..I know it was fled.
