Sometimes russian commies just look like castles or like huge walls made of concrete and glass. Such commies are not meant of being something like 'feather-light', but as a pleasure of garden city they could and should try to tend a little bit more to this direction. But I definitely like this Slavianka rajon. Looks very "human" and as a nice place to live.

Maybe I am repeating myself, but is the St. Petersburg metro expanding as well? What is the time distance of a metro line between a train's departure and a new train's arrival (for instance in rush hour and non-rush hour). How long is a normal normal train and how many passengers can be transported by one train.

I think cities which provide wide streets for indivudial transport similar to highways crossing a town are outdated. let 20 years past and there will be nearly no individual transport but meanwhile cities have suffered from heavy traffic and air pollution. Russia shouldn't make the same mistakes like Asia. Russia should invest into future and long lasting projects esspecially something like public transport. But what about those crazy "Martshukas"(don't know exactly how it is spelled} and why do russians prefer to take a taxi instead using the metro???

It seems to be already outdated as on horizon you can spot new commies rising up.

The might be a problem in city planning, so that city doesn't force construction companies to build what city wants. Instead, construction companies want to earn as much as possible and they build highrises since land is expensive and creating the whole infrastructure from the scratch in the new areas (where land is cheap) is even more expensive (not taking into account these areas are less attractive for customers).

Metro is still expanding and actually this is mot reliable public transport. Gaps between trains are 3min normally and 1min at rush hour.
Here is existing network and plans till 2020


Also, seems tram traffic is reviving. They build recently a few new lines where car and tram traffic are separated, they are going to build also high speed route from airport to city center.

"Marshrutkas" are bad, but it is not possible just ban all of them. In Moscow recently it was forbidden for them to use bus traffic lines.

I would love to hear that from Dresden.

I hope that Russia is turning away one day being runned by industrialists, but there are lot of good developments. Nevertheless europe and germany is in fact a huge invention of indsutrialists and people's voice is ignored. Just think of all these discussions of turning back to Deutsche Mark. Just like Russia had to suffer in the 90s, I think there will be hard times for europe in the future.

I have found a very intersting blog about a guy who presents some experimental and also common residential districts (think of Cheryomushki District) mainly in Russia. Check it out:

There are some nice commies in "student town" of Khanty-Mansiysk:



Reminds me Dresden a little bit. IMO, that is how they should build commies these days. I have left Russia a while ago, but as I can see, they still did not really learn how to build aesthetically nice tall commies - they were ugly during the Soviet era and they are still being built dull today. By the way, not only Russia - Ukraine and Belarus too.

Hmm, I think also the same way. There are some jewels of architectural masterpiece of mass housing to be found in Moscow and some planned cities in Russia and former soviet states, but overall the quality and variation is quite cheap and that is disastrous!

Soviet commie districts come huge and massive, but fail to give a warm feeling of living conditions. Maybe this can be traced back to the quality which has been used to build all these blocks, but in aspects of aesthetics compared to countries like Poland or Czechoslovakia soviet commie districts completely fail. There are no parks or trees in between the blocks, blocks are way to large and too dense, they should come in a more relaxed way.

Maybe there is and was a much more greater demand for flats than in any other eastern block country has been. That might be a reason, why soviet commie districts show little variation of constellation of blocks to each other and the missing integration of recreational areas.

I give some stereotypes: For me Zelenograd is a typical, architectural sophisticated, soviet mikrorajon or Strogino, but many commie districts in major cities of Ukraine suffer from really bad quality.

Perhaps someone can add something, which sharpens the basic differences between some seemingly low quality soviet commieblocks and what is to be called high quality commieblocks.

Let us abstract this question and ask for evidences of low quality commieblocks and a utopian perfect flat in a commie-district, because we do not want to insult some Russians or Ukrainians in here, since the above proposition has not been declared as a fact and is open for discussion.
