11 Winter Roads

Winter Roads

In Russia some villages can be accessed only in Summer - when there are no rains and ground is firm or only in winter when ground is frozen and firm. Of course not on the regular passenger car but on some kind
of SUV or tractor. And during the spring and fall when there is a lot of water - none can access those villages. Here are some photos of winter roads in the middle of the Russian forest.

Russian Wooden Highscraper

Today we have hand made stories. Another one is submitted by Timo. This one is really strange. It is a wooden multi-stored building. It looks like a real skyscraper in Arkhangelsk city. All the houses in the town are mainly two- three- stored and here it stands - a twelve stored wooden tower, more than 120 ft high (38 metres). There is not elevator and you
can reach the top of the building climbing by a carved wooden stairs. The building can be seen from all the town. The city authorities claim that the building spoils the town view and demand to reduce it by... 10 stores. But he refuses. He really likes his creation and most of the local people think that it looks nice.

Road Rafting

Just a few kilometers from Moscow city where people by cars worth of $1 million life is totally different. Some people living in Moscow may even not know how different it is, but it’s real and it’s there. On this photo just a small example of what happens in rural parts of Russia. Many villages are left by young people who move
to cities in a search of jobs and entertainment, some villages are populated with old people. Here is the glimpse of funeral – an old lady goes on some sort of wooden raft together with a coffin towed by a tractor, though there are some kids so not every young pair moved away from this village.

Russian Village

Russian wooden architecture is something you can meet in any Russian village all your way through Russia. Here we had already an article about Kizhi wooden churches, the place, the island on Onega lake in Karelia, Russia, where different examples of Russian wooden architecture are collected, from all over the Russia. Today it’s a different story, this is a sample of
just a common village from Russian rural countryside. It’s not something from medieval times, it’s a way of how the modern Russian countryside house builders look on things. Buildings on this photosets are used in everyday life – there are photos of schools, city hall (village hall) etc. This is simple Russian school.
