What’s up! I’m Vladimir from Moscow. I’m a lazy student, collector, activist, antagonist, regime fighter and a big fan of local history and vintage stuff. I’m also a traveler and the other day my friend Nikita and me went to Leningrad.
Those are cats of my friend I stayed at.
I was packing my stuff when Nikita called me and said we could not go back to Moscow and had to stay here in Saint Petersburg for one more day.
The girl in whose apartment I stayed left for work and I had to find a place to hang out for several hours.
I went hunting for rarity subway cars running in the city.
This one is newer.
I took photographs of several historic stations.
I hate all those advertisements and new signs they install in the subway!
I came across revolutionary soldiers and seamen.
There are few subway cars featuring windows like this left.
Why are they staring at me?
I pulled myself together. It was funny!
You won’t find anything like this in Moscow anymore!
Unfortunately, Avtovo station with its crystal columns – one of the most beautiful places in Saint Petersburg – was closed for reconstruction.
One of the few old signs left.
Taking the escalator up.
This is where I was.
Here it is!
Saint Petersburg’s famous castles.
Let’s go inside!
There were a couple of lood-looking girls over there but they ran away when they saw my camera.
On the tram heading to a tram museum.
It was not me, it was my camera that switched to this shooting mode.
Exploring the area.
They charged me $8 for entering the museum… And it was a paradise!
I have one such thing in my collection!
This ZiU9 was built for Argentine.
They are beautiful, aren’t they?
It’s not a Hermitage! You are allowed to touch everything here and push any button you like! That’s what real museums are for.
These fellas remember the Siege of Leningrad…
This is where they reconstruct and repair their exhibits.
One day they will be exposed in the museum too.
An eerie armored trolley coach… from the 2030s.
In the street.
In the subway.
I called on my buddies and we had dinner. It was some herring and bread with mayonnaise.
This house was built one year ago. You can hear everything what’s going on outside and at your neighbors’.
This is Yana. She’s cold and tries to warm herself by sitting by the radiator.
Nikita is going to cook something.
Dinner number two.
We took turns surfing the Internet.
Nikita dozed off.
In the subway again.
I was tired and I wanted to sleep.
The next day I was to go back to Moscow.
