I am not from Chelyabinsk, but my wife is I have been there once and I must say it was not as bad as one might think from the typical web found images. There are LOTS of nice neo-classical buildings and I never felt "depressed" walking around. Sure, there are many uninteresting commie blocks, but there are also many new developments that will obviously replace the old [ugly] buildings in the future. I was also impressed with the width of the streets and the sidewalks. I think that this city has great future... if some major investors put some money there.

I remember seeing a video clip on the proposals shown in the renderings, but never heard about the fate of them. Hopefully they will happen as envisioned

By the way, my wife's apartment is located close to this intersection, at the street to the right (Tsvilling Street):

Thanks for the pics

Beautiful wide open city

We knew this city before, maybe they have a well known footballclub. But in our atlasses this city is pronounced as : Tsjeljabinsk. It`s situated on the east flanks of the Ural. A mining district, we have learned at school.
Most Russian cities are in The Netherlands well known. For example, Lada Samara is a real car, there`s a song about Omsk in Dutch, and Novosibirsk means far away..... Within a few years I will visit Rusia. Thanx for these pics.

Nice proposals, but the city at the moment looks mostly depressing. It has a lot of potential though. The big sqaure is pretty impressive.

Unfortunately when i think of Chelyabinsk i tend to think of the cold war nuclear production days and the accidents that occured, at least they were a fair distance from the city.

For a Russian city, Chelyabinsk aint too bad. Great to see that new highrises are being planned. B.T.W. Chelyabinsk still looks awsome in the 1980s with those hammers and sicles and posters of Karl Marx.
