7 Russian Acoustic Guitar Makers from Bobrovo Russia

Russian Acoustic Guitar Makers from Bobrovo Russia

It might be a surprising fact for you but in Russia there are still a few factories producing guitars. During Soviet times, Russian people had to buy mostly all locally made products, so guitar manufacturers were blooming. Then, Russia opened its markets to foreign merchandise and many ex-Soviet factories went bankrupt. Many think that Russian guitar makers went bankrupt
too and aren't producing anything now, Chinese stuff is cheaper and often better made. However this is not true, and this is one example of an old Soviet guitar maker that is still making acoustic guitars. Thanks to Russian photo blogger Andrei who went there and took photos we can see what the Russian guitar maker looks like from inside.

10 Russian Depressing and Creepy Kids Playgrounds

Russian Depressing and Creepy Kids Playgrounds

Some time before we published from time to time some of the creepiest images taken at Russian kids playgrounds. For some reason many cities have plenty of those - maybe because the playgrounds are maintained by enthusiasts who are not very aesthetically sound and just do their best to support what they have. But this doesn't make this
things installed on the playgrounds look less creepy and strange. Just I am sure you would be shocked on how strange Russian playgrounds can look. In many instances you won't be able to identify what the authors have tried to achieve, and be swept away by the materials they used. Really depressing scenery inside!

Palace of Peter the Great’s Greatest Friend

Russian statesman Menshikov is well known in Russia. He is often referred as the best and the only friend of Russia's greatest innovator Tsar Peter the Great. They say that de facto this person was a ruler of Russia for two consecutive years. His official titles included Prince
of Russia, Duke of Ingria and many more. So for sure this man needed a palace as all Tsars did at that times and so he had one. Thanks to Russian blogger Deletant we are able to see the best luxury and style man could buy at that time in Russia. Let's see!
