A drap Soviet style apartment block row and many ugly garages alongside the railway line.
This is the city of Perm, on the edge of European Russia.

First one of that apartment buildings, white & yellow, surely built after the fall of USSR, maybe only a couple of years ago, according to its design. And terribly high prices for the flats even in most ugly and decayed houses now, especially in Moscow and Saint-Petersburg. Actually, higher than in the most countries in Western Europe.
TFS, even if subject is not architecturally great.

Your photo reminds me to my country, where you can find also buildings in social - realistic style. It's dark, moody picture, representing the exact atmosphere of communist suburbs.

Hello! Typical urban landscape of the new parts of former soviet block cities. Good composition of this picture. Did you take this picture from a train window ?? I also saw a Perm from this perspective when I was coming back from Lake Baikal. Best regards! Andrzej

You are right! An awful show. I live in 40 km from Perm and I happen here daily. There are also more nice places, it is a pity, that from their train it is not visible. And generally I often went on the Trans-Siberian Railway and I can tell, that Russia is not so interesting, if it to look out of the window trains.
Greetings from Perm Region,
