Capital of Rebel Chechnya Grozny City in 2016

Grozny City is not like any one of the Russian cities. Wide roads, no mangy five-story building, a lot of cafes and restaurants. And it’s in a small provincial town of small region! Of course, everyone knows the story of Grozny, it was destroyed almost to the ground. But it had been restored. Today it is the safest city in Russia.

1.The monument at the entrance to the city.

4. They built a complex of skyscrapers “Grozny Сity”, in one of the towers of which there is located 32-storey hotel. Where else in Russia (except Moscow) since the Soviet era anything like that had been build?Capital of Rebel Chechnya Grozny City in 2016

5. One of the towers was burnt. The windows of my room looked out just on the fire-damaged skyscraper. No trace of a fire is visible, though. The house was quickly cleaned from soot, and soon will be rebuild.Capital of Rebel Chechnya Grozny City in 2016

6. Approximately the same picture I did three years ago from the roof of one of these houses, but the last time it was unfinished. Now on the top floor of the hotel there is a restaurant with a viewing platform.

9. Why there are no such parks in other cities?

10. The main part of Grozny consists of private houses. And behind the houses – the mountains of the Caucasus. In general, the ideal for me is “the American” system of the city, with a central area of ​​downtown, and the private sector around.

11. A narrow river Sunzha flows in Grozny. Over three years they have made a stone embankment. Almost beautiful.

12. But the promenade ends in a stalemate. You cannot even climb the bridge. And why such embankment is needed?

17. The town is still a lot of signs with Kadyrov’s quotations, as well as portraits and photographs of the young Putin. The last time when I was here, I was shocked, but now I understand. It’s just the east specifics. In Muslim countries, they often hang portraits of the rulers. Such a culture.

25. The central streets are swept several times a day and they are very clean. But it’s hard to keep an eye for all the streets, people themselves must take care of them.

42. I like Grozny. It is cozy, with delicious food and people are friendly here. Well, in fact, this city is an example, the other ones are falling apart. Is it necessary to destroy everything to the ground to build anything decent and modern?
