This dash cam video is really short just around 20 seconds, but it might be the most dramatic of all of them. It shows what terror is really like about. Just imagine a car driving on a normal day in a normal residential area in civilized Europe, kids go to school etc. - just your everyday peaceful scene. And then suddenly a few grad
missiles fall from the skies right on the road smashing everything around and your peaceful day is not anymore. Really terrifying. And yes, its Ukraine, Mariupol city, previously much unaffected by the shootings, so it was a really unsuspecting peaceful driver in a peaceful area. Highly recommended to watch:
Going inside a caldera of Tolbachik volcano - this team of the few bloggers and explorers travelled right inside this active volcano. "We were wandering two days across those Martian landscapes", remembers one of the tourists, the photographer, "I couldn't believe that this is a landscape of the
Earth - it is that unusual and I never thought anything like this before". So would you like to see the burned lands of the Tolbachik too? Then thanks to Dmitry Chistoprudov and Nickolai Rykov, the photographers who took those pictures, we can see what they saw inside there.
So Novoafonskaia cave in Abkhazia is that large that it really has got a metro train line serving it. It is a pretty recently discovered cave - it first came to public attention in 1961. Then in 1980s it became popular Soviet tourism destination. In order to reach the most interesting parts of this natural cave they have made a manmade tunnel
with a real subway train - but smaller in size - to bring the tourists directly in the interesting part without walking for long under ground. Want to see this? Thanks to the photographer Igor Litviski who went there and took the photos we can virtually take a trip inside this natural wonder too. On a train. Let's go:
We had once a few photos from those huge Russian submarines traveling thru Arctics loaded on top of the boat. But it was just their departure and there were just a few photos posted. The photos were made from a distance and no much detail seen. Now the company that was making their repairs has
published much detailed photos of the boats, both from a distance and very up close like the photo above. If you are eager to see those giants mounted on a even bigger ship thats usually is being used for transporting the oil rigs and their pieces, then welcome inside:
In 1966 Life magazine for some reason was invited on a set of Soviet hit movie Aibolit-66 about cult animal doctor that was a hero of Russian books cartoons and TV series. If you want to take a look then see it inside of this post. It was filmed on a
warm Russian coast of probably the Black and Caspian seas - which should have been mimicked Africa, as the Doctor, the antagonist went to Africa to save animals and fight evil guy Barmalei which was played by the director himself.
Some call this Russian wooden palace "An Eighth Wonder of the World". At least they say the foreigners in 16-17th centuries arriving to the place were calling it like this. We won't go that far regarding its modern incarnation, however the place is really different from
everything you are used to see and is said to being an exact copy rebuilt of the wooden palace of Russian Queen Ekaterina the Great. They say that the original building was made without any single nail used. Let's see it in more detail and unclose:
In 1989 Boris Yeltsin, at times just a Soviet parliament and High Council member, has visited United States of America with an unofficial visit. The program of the visit consisted of visiting different landmarks like a Lindon Johnes Space center in Texas etc, but Yeltsin also wanted to see how regular Americans live so he headed directly to the grocery store he saw
on the street. The journalists that were with him on a trip were telling Yeltsin was pretty much shocked by the diversity in the store and was waving his hands all the time - like here on a photo. Inside you can see more photos of him in a store and also a short video which can help you understand why Yeltsin was surprised that much:
