Zmeika (Snake) mountain quarry view #4
Russia
The eastern and, in part, southern and northern slopes [source not specified 312 days] of the mountain are disturbed by an extensive quarry in which beshtownite was mined for construction purposes in the 30–80s of the 20th century [2]. The quarry is an extensive artificial outcrop of about 3 km long and up to 500 m high. It shows the features of the occurrence and internal structure of the subvolcanic intrusion of beshtownites, their relationships with the host sedimentary rocks, as well as the remains of the cover of Neogene volcanic tuffs, which determines the scientific value of this development. After the cessation of stone mining in the quarry, a natural restoration of the vegetation cover occurs.

This is right on the river Moskva in Moscow!Moscow has been the capital of Russia for almost its entire history. The exception is during the period of the Russian Empire, which lasted from 1721 until the Russian Revolution 1917. For these two centuries the capital was St. Petersburg. The Russian Empire was the second largest contiguous Empire in world memory; only the Mongol Empire had been greater.Check out what's happening north of Mongolia these days, in ChitaAlthough you may not have heard of Sochi, on the Black Sea, they're building up quickly and hope to host the 2014 Olympics.Other periods of Russian history include the Tsardom of Russia, from Ivan IV to Peter the Great, and the Grand Duchy (14th-16th centuries).The earliest period of Russian history was ruled by the Novgorod Republic and Kievan Rus, which was the first Russian state dating back to 800AD in Kiev.Modern Russia remains one of the world's superpowers.
