If you travel to Moscow then you might look this thing. It’s a separate building that hosts a huge toyish model of Moscow in great detail. Stanislav went there and made some photos.

And here is the model. It’s really big – to see the Kremlin in the middle you’ll need some optics probably.

  1. Those thousands of huge slabs of apartment buildings are daunting. But how else can you cram a lot of people in a small space. Some apartment buildings never get any sunshine. At least you have many neighbors for friends. Its the surely is the irony of fate.

    • I read that this model is 1:400 scale… 70 sq.meters…the “VDNHKH” [Soviet era exhibitions hall]. wants to expand the model to an area more than 10 times what it is now…..it was started in the mid-1960s.
