Post-Soviet countries are full of abandoned military places, but Gudym or secret base Anadyr-1, must be the coolest among them all. Geographically it's the closest to the USA and for obvious reasons it had enough missiles to fully destroy Alaska, Washington state,
California and part of South Dakota. Probably similar bases existed on the American side. Unfortunately, what was previously a super secret city surrounded by numerous military units does not have a future anymore. It is abandoned forever...
Such pavilions, which are usually called "hermitages", were quite in fashion in the XVIII century. They were used for recreation and dining and located in the remotest parts of parks. In order that servants do not
prevent owners of mansions from free communication, the pavilions normally had special mechanisms making the tables move. The hermitage of Tsarskoye Selo, Saint-Petersburg, was especially posh.
What did an ordinary Soviet living room look like back in the 70s? The living room belonging to some granny. One Russian girl did a great job to show you how it looked. Her miniature project, made in 1:12 scale, is very impressive. The
author used foam board, balsa, veneer, adhesive tape, LEDs, natural silk, bamboo, glass, mirrors, acrylic paints, wire, leather, various caps and cans... And only the sewing machine was store-bought. The details are awesome!
