Russian City Has Dirt as Tap Water

Russian blogger Sergey has travelled to Russian city Vyksa and discovered that he even wasn't been able to take a shower there. Why? Because water quality was a pure dirt

2 Russian Abandoned Frozen Houses

Russian Abandoned Frozen Houses

Russian blogger Sergei took a tour to one of the abandoned houses which are plentiful on Russian North. But instead of going there in Summer, as most bloggers do and we had posted plenty of such photos, he went there in winter. It gives us a
clear perspective what would happen to our beloved buildings if someday we be cut off the electricity and heat, those comfy apartments people in Russia are got used too going to look something like this. That's spooky!

2 Camping in Chukotka, Russian Style

Camping in Chukotka, Russian Style

What is Chukotka? It is sort of Russian Alaska - separated from American one by a Bering Straight. Indigenious people of Chukotka don't need visas to travel to Alaska and have had close ties in past. It's like Alaska, very
snowy very cold land. However locals like to go camping here too. How? Thanks to Mr. Basov, a blogger from Chukotka we can now discover a Russian way to go camping in the middle of frozen nowhere. Take a look:

8 Polar Nights in Murmansk 2016

Polar Nights in Murmansk 2016

Yesterday, the people of Murmansk celebrated "The Day of the Sun". This is the day when the Sun finally starts appearing in their skies for brief moments. In Murmansk, they have polar nights. Polar nights (also called winter days) are when you don't see the Sun in the skies during the day. Not even for a moment, the Sun doesn't rise above the horizon. The days look like twilight -
on the horizon there is a dim light showing a hint of the Sun somewhere there, but the Sun never rises and then a normal night comes again. But February the First is the first day that the Sun appears, so it's a big deal for the people living there. Let's see a few photos showing how they cope with this and how their city typically looks in winter.

The Russian city of Petrozavodsk was hit by cyclone Daniella today, which resulted in very heavy snowfalls. In a matter of just a few hours, the city was drowning in snow. Sometimes the snow drifts were as high as 1.5 meters tall. Petrozavodsk is a city with a population of 300,000, and is the capital of the Karelia region bordering
Finland and Norway. It's not a small city, so in an instant, the traffic got stuck. Huge city trolleybuses - electric powered buses - are not meant to go through thick layers of snow on the city streets so they began stopping and blocking the way for others. Let's see how it was thanks to local photographer Igor P.:
