Bright Moments in Life of USSR People

Posted on November 23, 2015 by tim

Some call those photos propaganda, some are being nostalgic and think this was the best of what happened to Russia and her people ever. Those photos are very bright and show a really bright side of life in the state which disappeared long ago. There are no actors in the photos, no models, just people caught having a good time. Take a look at this really interesting set of photos. First photo above is Crimea in 1963.

“Den Neptuna” or Day of Neptunus in youth camp in 1975. This was a must have holiday for all people spending their vacation on the Black Sea to dress up and party in Roman Neptunus style.

    Somehow the girls in the forefront do not convince me. They appear way too clear and sharp compared to the rest of photo. I may be wrong but it looks Photoshopped!!

    True. I remember the days in the 1980s when Russians were sent in batches as tourists to India. Ofcourse it was before the Gorbachev era. As a Hospitality professional, I had the opportunity to cater to such groups, Men and beautiful women, young and elderly, engineers, doctors. They were all wonderful people and so disciplined. I remember their joy and happiness and how they enjoyed my party arrangements in the beach and danced late nights.

    I would highly recommend to smack your translator right on the head few times a day, just for the sh1ts and giggles. Trust me its not going to hurt him/her/it.

    it looks nice, and there are many pictures from old USA that look nice.

    but we lived under threat of nuclear war. every day, in the back of our minds, as children.

    if there was a way to rebuild the middle class, without the cold war, i would say yes in a heartbeat.

    maybe we will find it some day.
