15 Unwanted Atomiс Submarines

Unwanted Atomiс Submarines

The village of Porchinikha was made by soldiers as a base for atomic submarines. It’s the most northern point of the Kola Peninsula on the Barents Sea shore with the road. There are mistakes in maps, soviet cartographers put this road on the map instead of a corvine path. Drive on the off-road? I wouldn’t be that sure. I found this place long time ago, when
discovered a world of geocashing in 2004. One of the virtual caches buried here as well. It's amazing but since 2003 (the date of the cache burying) no one took it, everyone puzzled: "Is it a foot or a water path?" Everyone saw satellite photos and couldn’t get how it is possible at all to get here without taking off the ground.

Russian forest of stone
57 Stone Trees of Yakutsk

Stone Trees of Yakutsk

One of the cool natural breath-taking places in Russia are the "Lena's stone forest" or "Lena's Stone Pillars". Many spend a lot just to get there and to take a look. This place is where the virgin Siberian woods stand untouched and the only way to get there is to take a four day journey from Moscow city. First, you have to take a flight so long that if you flew opposite direction you could easily come to New York, so far from Moscow that is, but that's still Russia. The average price for such flight is around $800 by Russian airlines, and as you might guessed there are no foreign competitors on those routes. Then upon the arrival to Yakutia region, the land from where the significant part of world's diamonds production originate from. Then from there the only way to go to
this place is by a boat. Armed native individuals can offer you a "cheap" $500 trip on a small boat, so in three days you can be on spot. They can show you the fields of wild hemp flower around which, as some tourists say, often can be picked up by your guide while you are exploring the stone forest, and then boiled together with some milk to meet you when you are back in camp with some mind blowing mixture. And they are all armed there, those natives. Also you can take bit larger river boat that are run by some local companies and go with more comfort up the river. Of course, then there are no armed natives or botanical exploration. Also this one can be see on google maps to get an idea where the heck it is.

The White Citizens

Most of the Russian friends would start convincing you not to believe in rumours about bears wandering around the streets and playing balalaykas after one or two beers or vodka shots. Don't
believe them! We have a proof that the bears actually do wander around and even visit construction sites. And yes, those are white polar bears which even adds to this.

Russia in the year 1896

Russia, 1896, in Color

Russia. 100 Years Ago. Again. We had it from Russian photographer Prokudin-Gorsky whose photos are being stored in the Library of Congress in USA, but now it's totally different case. Photos were made by Czech photographer while on his travel thru Russia back in
the year 1896. Most of them were lost later due to two wars in Europe and other tragical things but some still managed to survive till our year 2009 and now we can see them here. It's a big pity that there are only such a few of them left.
