    I get a strange feeling in my belly when looking at the ‘on the top of the bridge’-pictures. How do they just get to these crazy places? Great photos.

      That is Mother Motherland – the great monument to the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany. It is an analogue of a sort to Mother Motherland in Volgograd.

      The shield still depicts the seal of the USSR.

    Amazing photos – those guys have no fear of heights, whereas I feel like throwing up just looking at their incredible photos!

    I can understand that some people don’t suffer from vertigo, but they have no control over the wind. What happens if there’s a sudden strong gust? Splat! Please take care in future!
