If you have ever wondered how Soviet students partied, what they looked like, if they really had fun, and other things like that fifty years ago, then here is a rare chance. Thanks to these once private photos of Soviet students of a prestigious Moscow university, we can now see what these Soviet students were up to back then!
These days some in the media are commemorating the Chernobyl incident, or as they call it in Russia, “The Chernobyl Catastrophe”. The reason is because it happened exactly thirty years ago, in April 1986. So we decided to post something too. We posted the best spooky shots we could get our hands on. The story is as follows. Just four years after the incident, in the year 1990, a Russian photographer went right inside the destroyed reactor building, the most dangerous place in Chernobyl, and took those photos. Scary.
Today the rocket was launched from newly built Russian spaceport “Cosmodrome Vostochny” for the first time. Russian airplane photographer Marina was there and made those photos.
Russian group of enthusiastic artists decided to inhabit traditional Russian landscapes with famous Western cartoon characters. The result is big fun. Take a look!
Someone has made a big red heart-shaped hot air balloon, wrote “I Love You!” on it and took it into the air. Thanks to Maksim, Russian blogger we can see how it was.

In winter lions stay in warm houses because its cold outside and snow is not a rare thing in Crimea. But in spring all those fifty African lions are being released into a “wilderness” – fifty hectares (123 acres) of Crimean land. Let’s see inside, thanks to Crimean photographer YUry Ugans:
These are mainly projects of Likhachev’s plant, strangest of them that were never serially produced. Construction of army all-terrain vehicles in the USSR went much further than construction of ordinary cars. Engineers were brave enough in their ideas but they were doomed to remain in the world of fantasies.
Another exhibition “Motors of War” was held in Moscow recently. We are going to show you some pictures of the event focusing on motorcycles. They were in the minority and it makes them even more interesting to see.
We are in Kaliningrad, Russia, to visit the World Ocean Museum (where one may lose himself for hours) and get inside a real military submarine. Take a rare chance with us!
Russian mind has been haunted by the Moon in all times. Last century it was one of the most significant Soviet missions – to reach the natural satellite of the Earth and explore it. And the country succeeded.
