    i love reading your site. i wish there were more sites like this that just showed every day life (and history) in other countries. too much americanization of the world, not enough individualism.

    The factories in the Ural mountains are also very interesting.

    Interesting. Looks similar to the batteries along the Atlantic coast that the british and french built in the 1600’s and later WW2 batteries on the coasts of Newfoundland.

    Just found this, don’t know how I missed it at first!
    Another great post. I live next to a fort in the UK built in the 1870’s, and am a fortification nut!

    Thank you for your absoluetly informative page! I’ve seen some of these fortifications where the Russky Island bridge is currently being built. But I didn’t know it was that old! I’ll take photos on my next visit, and will include them into my Vladivostok blog!
