I'm quite interested in all things Russian - more specifically from the times of the USSR. Strange how it was so recent, yet seems so very old. Although it might just be because here in Britain we were actually a bit removed from its looming presence - certainly in Germany the iron curtain feels so much more immediate. I've just been looking at a set of photos of an abandoned Russian city called Kadykchan
I don't know anything about the place but I suppose it's safe to assume it was some mining town or scientific campus and when the money dried up, the people left. It's amazing that Russia is so big that things like this, entire towns, can just lie there forgotten and turning to rust in the endless forest.
