Dagestan is in Southern Russia and yet very different from what you see in the rest of Russia. Different now, and was different back then in 1933 as well. It was even much more different then, just look at this guy, and it was considered a pretty normal national dress. Even now, they use those coats somewhere there but not that often, of course.
What else was cool about Degastan in 1933 and Dagestan now? It’s in the mountains. Awesome views, nature, small houses. Very large pictures you can view fullscreen with a click. Common, lets take a look:
A typical Dagestan village called “AUL”.
Some ruins near by.
A canyon between mountains.
And here is a Dagestanian elder.
And his wife.
Houses, probably Soviet architecture over there already.
A typical house in Dagestan. What a view.
Even more of them.
Bad that the photos are black and white.
Another typical village on the hillside.
Peasants in the fields.
Looks like only women are at work in the field.
And all males wander around in the village. Looking at how the blacksmith shoes a cow.
Cruising on the horses.
Or selling daggers.
Hope you liked this, and at least you know that people in Dagestan were very tough. So tough that they even had to put horseshoes on cows (as in the photo you just viewed).
