    Fascinating. The park looks beautiful. Is the place with the crosswalks a university campus?

  5. Texas1 says:

    What is the 1/2 Faberge egg looking building?

  6. dave says:

    The trams have the same color scheme as the ones in prague..

  7. Doug says:

    1967: obviously a good year for sunny, perfect weather in Moscow.

  8. 3apa3a says:

    Those pictures look like postcards that were sold in russia detaliling different russian cities.

    Doesnt matter still beautiful to look at. And remember.

  9. Fry says:

    Great photos. It would be great to visit Moscow back then. No traffic, no corrupt cops, no MacDonalds and other western junk food;)

  10. Noggin says:

  11. I-Eat-Food says:

    Back when the Russian voice actually mattered.

    NO TRAFFIC ANYWHERE!!!!!

    WOW!!!

    • Woroao says:

      Maybe the traffic was edited out to create nicer pictures? You know, take two or more pictures of the same place, take scissors, cut out all the undesirable stuff, cars, drunkards, etc., glue pretty parts together and create a beautiful image. ;)

      Also, Russians used to make broader roads than Americans or Europeans so that it would be easier for army vehicles to use them. Same amount of cars on a bigger area -> looks like less traffic (though it won’t explain a complete lack of traffic).

  13. Aiwan says:

    And no street advertisement! I love old photos like these cause the have a purity which is lost under modern buildings ,traffic and street advertisement. Maybe only the moscow subway still holds a part of it

  14. Texas1 says:

    What is the story behind the ferris wheel? I think my parents told me something about it when I was a kid.

  15. Didoka says:

    Absolutely gorgeous. Love em.

  16. Texas1 says:

    It looks flat like Dallas

  17. AmericaPhobe says:

    Why you consider Ukrainiasn living in Ukraine a “underclass”?

      Shame on you to mock our brave Night Watch sentries.
      They simply came to honor soldiers in their own special way.

    • Texas1 says:

      Man, that is great! I like the Russian Bart Simpson. He looks evil, dangerious and only has two teeth!

  19. Ben says:

    I’ve been to Odessa in 2005! I liked that very much! (Beside the disgusting bugs on the street, crawling everywhere..never seen so many..).
    I even had a girlfriend from Odesa…beautiful Ira..
    Are you from Odessa???

    • Boris Abramov says:

      My father way born there. He has some photogaphs of Odessa 50 years ago, – beautiful!!

      I also have been there a few times :)

    The comments on this site are much more entertaining than the actual content itself…:) Are you guys russians?

    • wackyruss says:

      Hey! I’m a Texan!

      I visited Russia this past summer. My sister lives and works in Moscow at the U.S. Embassy.

      I have tons and tons of pictures. Russia is probably the strangest and most interesting place I’ve ever been to!

      I’ll post links to my pictures later.

  21. Dimon says:

    I can testify that Moscow was in deterioration long before she was open to western influence. From end of 70s and all through 80s all was decay.

  22. Siberia says:

    Look at the roads. Pretty bad.
    Moscow was very very beautiful, still.

  23. wintersun says:

    i found waldo in every picture.

  24. Buran says:

    Great pictures.

  25. Poltava says:

    Great pictures!
    It makes me feel it was good to live there at that time – of course the only way to live well in S.U. was being on the government.
    For the traffic, it’s nice to say that it was not so easy to get a particular car, I am right?

  26. Brad says:

    Someone should take pictures of the same places from the same persepctives today to compare.

  27. Alec L says:

    I was just in Moscow and discovered some of the same nostalgic spirit these photos riff on thanks to a story by Vladimir Sorokin called “The Eros of Moscow.” He describes Moscow’s seven “erogenous zones” and includes a task to complete at each.
    We tried the tasks and now I’m translating the story into English.

  28. Ahmad L.Fakhreddin says:

    I arrived in Moscow in 1967 to join the University UDN (now RUDN). These pictures touched my heart, I remembered the most beutifull times I spent in Moscow.

  29. Know Asian Women…

    This past weekend was the bachlorette party in Philadelphia. It was amazing. I started out by picking up Keri from her house and we literally screamed with excitement when we saw each other haha. We drove over to Cooper’ s house and it seriously felt…

  30. Asian women are cute and good mannered. they are very caring too.”-~

  31. Jacob Patel says:

    asian women are petite and most of them are mild mannered compared to western women.~.
