7 Forbidden Things-to-Do in Russian Banya

Banya (sauna) for Russians is like a cult. It is able to regenerate human again, to give strength for new exploits. Don't go there after midnight If you think that a banya is as an uninhabited island, you are mistaken. For centuries there lives so-called Bannik - a banya master. This creature likes when everyone
please him in every way: leave a bar of soap, for example, or water in a pitcher - Bannik also wants to wash. He prefers steaming strongly after midnight. If you also have such a "wonderful" idea, beware - Bannik will crush you. Simply to say, it will intoxicate your desperate little head.

Cross-country vehicle “Vympel” for the oil and gas fields in Yamal

"Vympel" SPA finishes the test cross-country vehicle, which can be called as one of the most impressive Russian explorers of impassable roads!

Its wheel height – is at the level of my eyes, and the car height - is near two human growths! So it is not a surprise that it surpasses all
the rest cross-country vehicles that are manufactured there: its curb weight is eight tons and this 11-meter giant could carry up even six tons of cargo. I want to note that we are talking about floating cross-country vehicle - other wheeled vehicles of high permeability that could drive through water obstacles, could take one, maximum - two tons aboard. Feel the difference!
