Soviet Block

For some reason Soviet achitecture is so beautiful to me. I think there is this romantic notion of once great empires that collapse and leave traces of their existence spread across their territories. These Soviet bus shelters are great. via SwissMiss.



I love this one above and its weirdly angled roof.

I know and how is the choice of colours?
I sat and looked et them for ages. Thing I love the most is the isolation in the landscape of the shelters. Its like a sanctuary in the middle of nowhere.

Have you seen Moscow metro? Bus shelters is nothing comparing to it. Every stop is like a museum. None of the stations look alike.
