Countryside is so close to the capital's districts in Russia sometimes ;)

Indeed, very cool Moscow commieblockz! Old School! And not so old... :)
It's not the countryside ;) It's the suburbs, and those buildings are far-far away from the city center ;)
This is just how it works, Russian cities get higher as they spread.

Good Lord, it's hideous, but somehow I can't look away.

Commieblocs are strangely fascinating. It's funny to think that in the west people pay good money to live in inner city apartment towers whilst I bet everyone in those pictured above couldn't wait to get out, of course I guess the inner city western towers are a bit nicer;)

Still these Commieblocs are rather dehumanising, I feel bad for people who have to live in them, Russia is a big country, there's lot of room to build housing estates, it's shame ppl can't afford them.
