Verkhniye Mandrogi

  • wooden pavement in the streets

    Verkhniye Mandrogi Local Customs

    Some of the streets and sidewalks in Mandrogi have a special type of a wooden pavement like I have seen it so far only in some castles in Austria. Walking over such a pavement feels extra soft and comfortable for the feet and it also does not make any noise at all.And obviously this pavement is also able to withstand the strong russian winters !

There are several underground passages in the front gate, leading...

    Kopor'ye Off The Beaten Path

    From Kopor'e, drive North till a T-junction. On the right, there is a checkpoint to enter the city of Sosnovy Bor with an atomic power station. Turn left, and drive 500 m, until you enter a pine-tree wood. There, park a car and find a path to the shore (the shore is approximately 200 m away). The pictures I show are taken just before the sunset.
