Lenina Avenue, Ekaterinburg, Russia

Artists' exhibition in the park in the city center; Lenin Avenue, between the Square of 1905 Year and Khokhryakova Street. Open daily.

Lenin Avenue, Ekaterinburg, Russia

Lenin Avenue, Ekaterinburg - The number of cars in Russia multiplied by 10 in the past 15 years, which created problems for most Russian cities that have not been built to handle such traffic. The Russian style of driving is different; they are used to taking chances but at the same time very skillful. Speed limit in Russian cities is 60 km (37 miles) per hour.  

Square of Labor, Lenin Avenue, Ekaterinburg, Russia

Square of Labor, Lenin Avenue, Ekaterinburg - Nevertheless, most Russians still do not own cars and use public transport, which I must admit is quite good. Buses, trolleybuses and trams are available and inexpensive.  

Street Studencheskaya, Ekaterinburg, Russia

Street Studencheskaya, Ekaterinburg, Russia - this is the building where Elena's office was situated. Ekaterinburg is a very green city, with many trees and flowers on the streets and many well maintained parks inside and outside the city.

At the entrance to the graveyard, close to the church, there was an alley of graves with huge (1,5-2 people's heights) tomb stones picturing young men. When I asked Elena who they were, I was shocked to learn that it were the graves of Mafia. The full length portraits on the black marble were state of the art, and the graves were thoroughly maintained. I looked at the live flowers and the dates on the stones; most of the men left this world very early, between the age of 20-35 years.

One should not be concerned about Russian Mafia when visit Russia; they do not care about foreign tourists as well as about ordinary Russian people. Russian police is effective and you can apply to them in any difficult situation, when you got lost, for example.

Orthodox cross and Muslim crescent together on one of the graves. The spiritual connection between people is more important for Russians than the religious differences. Russians do not have separate graveyards for different religious confessions, which reflects their great religious tolerance. Russia was officially atheistic until the Perestroyka (1987).
