Just one of many abandoned Russian villages, scattered across huge Russia. People simply leave for cities where they can earn more, and thousands of Russian wooden architecture masterpieces, sometimes more than 200 years old, stay by their own.
Russia - the homes outside of the larger cities (like St. Petersburg or Moscow) - MUCH different lifestyle... some things reminded me of the 1940's... and a much simpler, community lifestyle. I miss this.
