    A Street to the West

    by hunterV Updated Jan 4, 2015

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Road Street will take you from Lenin Avenue to the town's limits - the River Lozova and the cemetery. There are 126 houses in this street.
    You will walk past the old colmine's slug heap located just behind the houses with odd numbers up the street.
    Unlike some other streets, this one is not very quiet for it is a transport artery from Zorinsk to Chervony Prapor - a village in Perevalsk District.
    I went along this street two times during my pilgrimages to the village of Yelenovka.
    I noticed a piece of old sidewalk down the street and an old clay quarry at the end of the street.

    Alpine Cows

    by hunterV Updated Nov 21, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As I was walking to the village of Yelenovka I saw a shepherd with a dog who had brought several cows for pasture. The dog did not even try to bark at me,
    I wondered how those cows managed to walk up and down the hills without falling from them.
    One brave cow was on the brink of a deep ravine.
    Also, there is not much grass in the town limits, so the cows have to be taken outside the town.

    There are seventeen five-storey apartment houses at 40 Years of Victory Block.
    You will see them from October Street - the central one in the town.
    There are several small shops inside the block and a school.

    Neglected Soviet Monuments

    by hunterV Written Mar 1, 2005

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can see such neglected 50-year-old monuments and sculptures in Lenin Street.
    This one is called Happy Family (by me).
    I am sorry poor baby girl lost her right hand…It could’ve been worse….
