Few days ago in Vladivostok there was Christmas tree erected. And so gracious and beautiful it was, not to say that it was the most expensive Christmas tree in the whole Russia. But as the weather was fierce and sea wind was blowing really heavy, accidentally it fell down. No casualties, of course. But what would one do if there is one day till the New Year and there is no Christmas tree at all. It is perfectly clear! Set new tree, shabby one!

Because of that any road was clogged up to the brim every singe day. And now, when frost almost dropped Russia off and left just a bunch of two or three feet high snowbanks here and there, it seems that Ukraine and the rest of Eastern Europe countries just began feeling this snow frenzy.

There is one thing that every big city cannot be borne and live without. Water is the only vital source that exists on the Earth and we cannot hold out even a day without it.

There are lots of bridges that are built in Kiev but today we will tell you about the longest and busiest one. Moscow Bridge.

Indeed, the NY has an absolute right to be considered as one of the greatest and happiest holidays of all. But except for tons of joy, sea of presents, New Year’s tree and feeling of excitement which cannot leave you some ten days before the moment of truth, it has something else.
