Closer Belarus//Bobruisk.Minsk.

Oh, I came back to SSC
It turned out that I gotta upload my pics now, not in the end August
Pics of Osipovichi will be uploaded in the end of August.
PS
I'm not in Moscow.

Ok. movin on!

Bobruisk

Bobruisk is very developing and prosperous town
(The biggest town in Belarus, only cities is ahead)

Surreal(and little bit unrecontructed(from 80s) and rusty) Creativity Palace

Closer view^

Surreal like this Palace fountain

Bobruisk Hootel, Surrealistic Colomns

Administration of one of Bobruisk's Districts
Very good example of Soviet Architecture of 80s

Weird entrance with shooters(typical soviet thing)

Bobruisk's Lenin
(Note: Take attention to reduced plinth. It was refused in 2008(probably because of Anniversary of this town) And Lenin became more imposing than ever)


Oh, Bobruisk loves surreal architecture!
Oh, It seemed to be a house that may be impossible to build in a real life

Crossed tree
(oh, it's actually a Motion Trick)

OOh, very beautiful pic of St.George Statue

European traffic lights

Modern building of Bobruisk Heat Networks


Central Street. Historical Buildings

Telegraph

No comments




Minsk


"Minsk is the capital, yes..." Capitan Obvious

"With observation wheel in the Central Gorky Park. One of the tallest in Europe" Capitan Obvious

Writer Gorky in the park that called by his name

Tallest tower in Minsk, and space-styled unknown building

Here's a little detail
Look carefully

So. Victory Square
One of the Landmarks of Belarus around the world(I meant Victory Monument)
"The feat of the nation is immortal"

Part of this Victory Complex on Victory Sq
Underground Transition

View to Independence Ave

In Soviet Belarus(and Lukashenko's Belarus) monument(especially this relief) watches YOU!

Coat of arms of Belarussian SSR


McDonalds. Green and lovely place


Minsk-Arena and its square
(the future site of Junior Eurovision 2919 and 2014 World Hockey Championship


Troitskoe Subrub
Little Europe in Minsk


Tears' Island, dedicated to dead soldiers of Afghan War

And now National Library pf Belarus
Look at the lights(aka "screensaver")





Long live the feats of the nation!

Though Belarus is the "last dictatorship of Europe" and here's the worst kind of socialism
Architecture in Belarus is rather European, than Russian
(probably because it was a Part of the Great Duchy of Lithuania and Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, and then Russian Empire, and then USSR, Belarus became independent only in 1991, and don't forget abouy dictator with son which came from nowhere(Cause 95% of the nation don't know who the hell is wife of Luka)
But most of modern buildings(Arenas, Libraries) were built on voluntary-compulsory contributions.
Minsk Arena was built on credits from Venezuela, Iran etc

So, I promised to continue my thread.
I did it.

Osipovichi

View from my house in Osipovichi
(here's panel house that was built just for 5 months, fast period)

Children's playing on tubes:

First Catholic Church in Osipovichi, built in 2007
You can see Catholic Churches practically often in Belarus
Because Polish(=Catholic) people were their ancestors little bit:

Typical Modern Belarus(as it in towns)

Hotel. . Very luxury, right?

Unknown building

Polish House

Typical Soviet Store....

....and its other side

Weird and unknown roof

Typical Belorussian recycle bins(as it in Europe)
(1- plastic, 2- glass, 3- plastic)

And you didn't except that, City Mall(Super-Market+ little shops on 2nd flour)

And rival, Pahomovsky Super-Market

In Russia there are No casinos and poker clubs(from last year)
But in Belarus there are

Pride of Osipovichi's Land
Olympic Champions 2008(to Canoing and Kayak) Bogdanovych Brothers
Phrase on the banner:
"We stand for healthy life style. What about you?"

Just a little drawing on the ground

Funny Mobile Operator Office

"Here's strictly(ether serious or brutal, you decide)"

Beltelecom Osipovichi Headquarters(formerly- Telegraph)
Also I visited Internet in Belarus right here

Sale... ?%

Lenin

Big line to get salaries through ATM

Belorussian language is slowly disappearing from slates
Let's save that rare language
(BeloRussian is above, russian is below)

Mini-Market and old water tower(1900s)

What the hell is "Best Active Music"?
Music for active people?
(so, it's actually techno or techtonik(I hate it))

Zero Kilometer
(103 km to Minsk, 130 km to Mogilev)
So, teens love to write some kind of crap on bus stops
(somebody is the best, somebody is stupid)

But if you turn your head back, you'll see a real village..

and famous Belorussian swamps


Vereycy Village
Beautiful Garden

And Landscape

Artistic sky(by me)


wires, lamppost

House exemplary order

Constructing town

weird palm


Central Park. Fountain. Transport Administration

Alley of Glory
Heroes of the Soviet Union of Osipovichi who died on WWII


Does he remind you of Putin?

Soviet Tank


And 122mm......oh...just a weapon

Momument to soldiers-internatonalists

the stage. Central Park. Back side.

And stage by itself

And.....teens writes a crap, and their phone numbers(do not ever call them

Beautiful nature

House or half-house is for rent:

Registry Office(very good example of modern soviet architecture)

Nature. Sumchenko Street



Harmony with nature.

Little bit worse

Soviet Soldiers Momument

Bike Parking

Luxury Lion in the town....oh can you imagine that?
