The scattered History of communisum around the city. FOG, FOG, FOG
From November to Jan very very foggy or misty. Difficult to take photographs as everything looks flat and colourless.
Also the airport doesn't operate well when its foggy. If flying out of the city you can expect an unintended extra night or two.
Volgograd is great at May. It is bright, green and clean. Unfortunately internet could not transmit smells of spring flowers and blooming trees. Chestnuts, lilacs and bird cherry trees - a must attribute of Russian south towns.
The complex was built by Vuchetich architect and it is begun in the lowest position with entrance composition that shows a group of people. It symbolized sorrow and gratitude for the victory, you can see woman and a child as well as some men figures.
