A Deeply Abandoned and Flooded Soviet Bomb Shelter

  Penumba, an urban exploration blogger, has paid a visit at night to an abandoned but still guarded Soviet bomb shelter. The floors of it have been flooded with water for years, but it didn't stop him from visiting! They thoroughly planned their visit so as to
avoid all of the guards - there were at least a few guard stations on the perimeter of the area where this shelter is stationed. Then they put the rubber boots that they carried in their backpacks on when entering the shelter. And here they are - inside!

Previously, when there was no Photoshop and travel was unrealistically expensive and slow, the only fun way to get a cool shot for a family album was to visit special photo salons which provided fake scenes of a richer life. They were either painted scenes with holes in
them where you could poke your head out and wait for a shot, or sometimes more sophisticated photo manipulation techniques were used. Someone recently published a book with some of these of photos and we offer them here for your viewing pleasure:

Inside of Russian Space Shuttle Buran

Russian blogger Alexander has visited a Moscow exhibition where they, probably for the first time, allowed people to go inside a Soviet legend - the Russian space shuttle "Buran". For this they took one of the surviving Buran shuttles - only a few were ever produced - and moved it to the Moscow exhibition. At first it was just staying there
as a display of the scientific advancement of the Soviet era, but later they converted it to a museum in itself where it is possible to go inside the shuttle. Inside you can see a real Buran cockpit, and a retractable panoramic roof with a 3D scene of space made with huge computer LCD panels and much more!
