One Village Gym

As the author of these photos put it - "boys in a village also enjoy doing sports, but not always they have a gym nearby or can afford it at all, so often they make gyms themselves from the things they have
around. One of such gyms we visit now". Pieces of electric poles, tires, scrap metal and 100 roubles ($1.5) from each person - this is what have been used to set up this gym. See inside:

Abandoned City on the Russian Polar Norwegian Svalbard Island

A Pyramida  (Pyramid)  Village is a Russian town that has stayed untouched since 1990s when it was abandoned shortly after the collapse of the USSR. The difference between this particular Soviet town and many other abandoned sites we've seen is its location. It's not in Russia. Yes, it is based on a Norwegian island Svalbard or Spitzbergen as its called in Dutch and in Russia. In Soviet times
Russians have a right to use this part of the island and even had couple of towns there. But now it is all abandoned and has not beem destroyed or rampaged by looters as its too far away from Russia and permafrost preserves things well. Let's see what's there.   Thanks to prominent Russian blogger and traveler Sergey D. we can now dip into some well preserved Russian past:

          According to Russian media the first bridge connecting continental Russia and Crimea peninsula has been completed.  Previously Crimea had no direct roads to Russia, you could get there either thru Ukrainian mainland or thru ferries from Russian coast. They have found the narrowest path in the Kerch Straight and started
building a bridge to connect Russia to Crimea. Now it's done. It's a technical bridge yet, not open for a general public, however trucks are already able to cross the sea and go to Crimea. Also it carries electric cables to feed electricity to the peninsula. A few details on the bridge and how it is built are inside.
