Russian Village Oparino Lost Deep in the Woods

Russian Village Oparino Lost Deep in the Woods

This village in Russia is lost deep in the woods. There is no road leading here, except this old rail road. You can’t get here by car. In case of emergency, a person has to walk 40 kms to get to the nearest place. It is surrounded by swamps. Two times a month a small, old train with only one car comes here. Thanks to the Russian blogger Grifon, we have a chance to peek into the life of people here. Let’s look!
