5 An Abandoned Orbita

An Abandoned Orbita

Another installation remains abandoned in Chukotka - a Russian region close to Alaska - an abandoned complex called "Orbita" or "An Orbit". It was pretty well preserved and locked for years but now it's all totally open and anyone can walk in. Of course anyone is a pretty big word for the Chukotka region, so desolate and far away that
even with all of the doors open, this place has probably not been visited at all. It takes a few days to get here from Moscow, changing planes a few times and then travelling by trucks or helicopters. A blogger who calls himself Zhzhitel went there and now we can see what's going on there. Let's see what's inside!

A famous Russian blogger Sergei, has recently traveled in his Land Rover through one of the most distant Russian highways - Kolyma. In fact the name of this region, after which the highway is named, is often used in the Russian language to mean "the place very
far away and inhabited by prisoners." However, as Sergei says, it is at the same time scary and beautiful "as often happens". He says that this is the most beautiful road he has ever traveled in Russia (and he has traveled a lot) but...

0 Russian Artist Sergei Vinogradov and Scenes of Life He Depicted

Russian Artist Sergei Vinogradov and Scenes of Life He Depicted

Do you sometimes want to know how things were a hundred years ago? How people lived? What they felt? Did their surroundings looked like ours? Was the nature the same? Then we try to resort to photography but soon realize that at those times it was not like it is now - when everyone has a camera in their cell phone. At that time only a few had access to technology and if they were taking photos they were staging shots, posed very precisely and often
with precious moments of life slipping by unnoticed. So another resource to visually see the life of the past is art. Painters were often more interested in getting real life on their canvases, and we are lucky that such artists, like for example this old Russian painter Sergei Vinogradov, existed. He depicted people, surroundings and more from a hundred years ago and now we can enjoy his works and get the feel. See more inside!

2 Great St. Petersburg Before the October Revolution

Great St. Petersburg Before the October Revolution

Some say the grandeur of the great Russian city of St. Petersburg can easily be compared with such pearls of ancient and medieval civilization as Rome, Vienna, Paris or Venice. It's not very obvious nowadays, when there are plenty of modern and Soviet buildings and a lot of it is spoiled by ads, bad planning and other things, but when you discover for
yourself some rare and previously little seen beautiful shots of the city just before the October Revolution kicked in, you really can understand what they mean when they say it is ancient and beautiful. Don't forget, those pictures, as with many others, can be clicked and turned into beautiful widescreen views of the city. Take a look:

7 Production of Russian SU-34 Fullback Twin Engine Strike Fighters

Production of Russian SU-34 Fullback Twin Engine Strike Fighters

The Sukhoi SU-34s are Russian twin-engine, twin-seat strike fighters, intended to replace the older Sukhoi Su-24s. Not many of those are deployed yet. The first jets were received into the Air Force in 2008 - and as of July 2015, only around 70 aircraft are flying. These planes and its production facilities were probably top secret before, and maybe in Soviet Times
it would be totally impossible to get into the facility. However nowadays some bloggers with connections are able to get into the factory and can even take detailed photos of what's going on in those factories. And thanks to one such blogger - Aslan - we are now able to see the previously top secret stuff at Sukhoi's Novosibirsk air factory.
