  1. Harmony of Imperial Russian structures, communistic structures and some mordern structures…

    Thats why russian and eastern european cities are beautiful.

    • You could tear down *all* the communist-era structures in *any* country and the city would look nicer. This is true in Moscow, Bucharest, Berlin, anywhere that the disgusting hand of communist architecture has touched. It’s really the ugliest buildings ever produced in the history of the world.

        • Soviet architecture is disgusting and in Germany we’re tearing it down as fast as we can. Berlin is so much nicer with the Soviets gone!

  2. Fantastic photos! It’s apparent that the photographers had much fun in climbing the various bridges and towers. The next to the last photo should be called “Tower Streaking” or “Streaking the Tower”. Such Fun!! Thanks for posting/sharing these. Kiev is a beautiful city!! 🙂
