Who ever wants to see a fake and terrible copy without any history and is totally out of place? No effort and money were saved to create this crazy project where by the way no public toilet can be found. Priorities are so wrong in...More

We recently embarked on a Vodohod river cruise from Moscow to Astrakhan and were privileged to visit the city of Yoshkar-Ola, Mari El Republic. The Brugge Embankment is in the centre of the city and modelled on the historic town of Brugge in Belgium. A...More
