Novosibirsk is one of a few Russian cities that has a few roofers, diggers and other trouble makers. Law-enforcement authorities are very vigilant here. Next to the subway documents are checked together with serial numbers of cellphones which is done to find those ones that had been stolen. Local inhabitants are active as well: just try to overcome a fence or spoil a TVset in a subway train and witnesses of the action will immediately call the police. Getting the photographs below was far from being easy.
Skyscrapers stand close to summer houses here.
The Communal road bridge.
Most drivers of Novosibirsk use right-hand-drive vehicles that have been transported from Japan. Due to dry climate and lack of reagents on the roads cars never get decomposed here. But their traffic jams are awful just like anywhere else.
The subway has a very interesting construction. Right now it consists of two lines and 13 stations. Engineers used many interesting technical decisions, for example, an intersection of two lines right above each other at an angle of 90 degrees, so that a person can observe simultaneous movement of trains standing at the place.
The fans are located in a vertical direction.
The purpose of some constructions is not clear.
Novosibirsk State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre.
Once some guys installed a pirate flag on the roof of the theater at night. The trouble makers were found soon and Director of the Theater took them to a long excursion showing all the rooms of the complex.
