Russia

The stone buildings still somehow survived. For a time it was a military training ground, so that the visible traces of deliberate destruction. In general, producing an eerie impression.

More About Russia

Just in case you mistakenly heard that it was all ice and snow in Russia, take a peek at the Big Bikini Exposition. This is right on the river Moskva in Moscow!Moscow has been the capital of Russia for almost its entire history.
