1 The Brightest Town in Russia

The Brightest Town in Russia

One of the most remote cities in that vast country, the capital of the sparsely populated Russian region. Quite a few people live in Anadyr, just 15,000. This even for the district center in the middle lane is not enough. But not for Chukotka where just 50000 people live. To tell the truth, fly to Chukotka for just looking at Anadyr is not worth it. There are only a few streets
that you completely bypass a couple of hours. Still, one need to fly and change to a helicopter or ship, go on a visit to the Chukchi and deer. At the same time, this town is an obvious candidate for the title of the brightest town in Russia. See how the perception of the surrounding reality is changing, if one just paint the old Soviet houses!

2 Russia: Grass and Missiles

Russia: Grass and Missiles

We arrived at the village and then drove to the resort, to a small slate career. The nearest underground missile silo was in two hundred meters from that place. Once, the formidable intercontinental ballistic missile R-36M UTTKh lived in the underground missile silo, otherwise called Satan. But now there is no rocket inside it, there only a small house remained. Today my story will be about the
house and other underground constructions. We arrived. We left the car and walked down the thickets of wild pea and hemp fields. Not inclined to think that it is grown especially by locals - too big and chaotic plantations. But I was sure that in the autumn there would be enough harvest for all the surrounding villages. Some individual plants were higher than I.

Story of Light: Lighthouses on the Edge of the World

Some of the most beautiful lighthouses of Russia and the Far East are located in Primorsky Krai. It would seem that the task of lighthouses – to serve as a guiding light for ships ­– has become almost symbolic in the age of satellite
