USSR In the Early 1970s: That Very Nostalgic Feeling

15

The Soviet Union was so huge and colorful, so different and multicultural that one who could travel across its enormous territory might have a feeling of being to many many countries. Frank Baumgart was one of those happy foreigners who travelled to various corners of the USSR in 1970-72 and took plenty of interesting photos that look so nostalgic now.
