Salekhard from a Bird’s-Eye View

post-3-12644952395030

Salekhard is an administrative capital of the Yamalo-Nenets autonomous district. It’s located at the left bank of the Ob river and occupies a territory of 1018 square kilometers or 636 square miles. We have a splendid collection of aerial photos of the city. Just look at the peculiar type of construction of all buildings, they do not look like usual houses in Moscow or any other Russian city.

  1. It’s really nice to see some change form the usual blocks, though there are still the same organization of apartment blocks with a closed inner court. Colors, more colors.

    Amazing pics, thanks ER.

  2. Some buildings look American, others Chinese, others European. Really, what’s the reason for these designs? This city is kind of in the middle of nowhere, so it’s strange.

  3. Well of course the buildings look different from older Russian cities! The buildings are constructed from pre-fabricated materials like aluminum panels, etc. These can then be trucked in and assembled on-site.

  4. Ah… my hometown… I loved it so much. Thanks for these pictures, my old school is in close up and everything is looking so new and so great. Even the old houses have been painted, although they were supposed to be destroyed.

  5. It’s hard to believe that it is in Russia where everything is black or white especially in winter. Russian cities should get the colours like this marvelous town to be not so depressive as it is now.

  6. I lived in this city 18 years.
    Previously, he looked completely different. I am six years old living in St. Petersburg, and every year I go to Salekhard watching the changes.
