      Moscow has turned into a rat’s nest where nothing is sacred. Landmark buildings are demolished whole or partly and in the best case scenario rebuild from concrete and steel, but quite often replaced by more ‘efficient’ apartment buildings [for the rich, of course].

      At the same time, nationalism rules. Leading to awful acts when combined with the social unrest due to the financial crises. A Tadzhik had his head chopped of last Thursday. For no reason, he was just walking home after work.


      That’s Moscow today. Corruption and perversion rule, fueled by money and naive ideas about nationalism and ‘prestige’.

      Welcome !

        I don’t care what you think.

        And nowhere it’s written that this site is for fun only. It’s about things happening in Russia. So I feel free to add my 2 cents.

        Maybe you are one of those people who do not watch the news ‘because it’s all bad and nasty anyway’. Well, wake up to reality. Ostrich politics will not help.

    it’s a beutiful place madineg. people have hust forgotten what beuty looks like.

  5. Leo Petr says:

    It is beautiful, but it is also lifeless. Architecture alone is not enough for a great city. There must also be activity, life, people, crowds, destinations, and things on the way. There must be joy.

    Neither that nor modern Moscow is utopia.

    Hey guys, it’s me. I just want to say that I’ve been arrested for kidnapping, torturing, and raping children. I guess I won’t see you guys anymore. Bye! :(

  8. KBR says:

    Man can you imagine a Moscow without traffic jams…I wonder if you could hear the births sings?

    • peeerkl says:

      Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder … ;)
      I am sorry but I cannot see the beauty in those monolithic monsters.

      hmmmmm, somehow those pics reminded me of the current North Korea. Could the similarity in the regimes be the explanation?

      • CZenda says:

        Of course.
        The style of the ugly buildings which remind mausoleums is sometimes called “Stalinist Gothic”. It was the official architectural taste from 30s till mid 50s in the USSR.

    Compare to now. Ufff…

  10. erin says:

    is it the black and white that makes it look so postcard-like? while i like this, its a bit too antiseptic for me.

  11. John from kansas says:

    It is always good to see vintage photographs. Thanks for posting.

  12. Vulcan says:

    What could have happened to such a beautiful country?

  13. greger says:

    In pictures 14 & 15… Is it the eye of Sauron I see?

    It would explain why the CCCP murdered over 30 million people. With the evil Sauron at the helm and all.
