Bad, bad roads

There is a saying made by a Russian  writer Nikolay Gogol “In Russia there are two big problems: bad roads and a lot of fools”. He said this almost 200 years ago, but if he said this today he would hit the point again.

Just have a look on the picture below.

bad russian roads

 Of course, there are better roads in big cities like Moscow city or St. Petersburg, but in common across the Russia roads are really bad.

  5. This picture has been on the internet for a while now. To those who shout out “photoshop” to any strange picture, this really happened a few years back when a huge waterpipe bursted creating muddy pool for those unfortunate Daewoos.

  6. It’s not a Photoshop, it’s really took place in my city (Samara). This photo and others with the same accident were published in local press about five years ago. Water pipe was broken under this garages.
