the building in blue
This building in blue is next to the State Theatre of Ballet & Opera and maybe its a hospital or university, the tourguide did not mention it at all, while we were passing by. It is a nice building anyway and worth seeing in my opinion for its great architecture, dating back to the last years of the Tsars time.
the old town-quarter of wooden houses
There is an old town-quarter in Perm, where at least 40 or 50 of old wooden houses were built close to each other like in a small village, and although people are living in these interesting houses nobody seems interested to maintain or restore them.
We passed by these houses in our tourbus and not a single word was mentioned about them by our tourguide and only when we asked her she told us that these houses will be torn down and replaced by modern buildings.
That would really be a pity and the city of Perm would loose its soul in my opinion !
Perm, is, well how shall I put it, not the most touristic city. The Lonely Planet says Perm could easily be skipped by any tourist. Despite this, I grew strongly attached to this city. The people there have grown up and barely seen anywhere else and so they love it, and I developed a love for it too. But it takes time. Lots of communist concrete blocks and little typical tourist attractions.
The people of Perm are very friendly, but a bit warey to begin with. They are not used to foreigners (you will get stared at a LOT), and are perhaps a bit more reserved than they need to be as they are so keen to make a good impression of both Perm and Russia for you to take back to your country. Once they relax a bit more, they are so friendly and helpful.
