    It has a special docking device at the front, that fits into a "clamp" at the pier. Is also used to recharge the batteries.
    Much faster than the old style, when the boat had to be tethered to the pier by people.

    The author of the video demonstrates some examples of housing that you can buy in the village of Slyudyanka on the eastern shore of Lake Baikal. On my own behalf, I want to add that this is a depressed village, there have been no new apartment buildings there for a long time, and the ones shown in the video were built no later than in the mid-80s. So the apartment buildings in the video are about half a century old or more. It's a literal village in the middle of nowhere.

    If you would consider that from another perspective, it is located at the shore of the Baikal, with beaches and a small port. And less than 100 km from Irkuck makes it a potent dacha location. This type of location can only gain with time and prosperity.

    Yes, it is even further away - but also close to the shore of the lake (although not Lake Baikal). But this is an apartment for renovation at a price of 200,000 rubles (a little more than $2,000). It will definitely require about 1-1.5 million rubles more for repairs, but it's still even cheaper than what was in the video.
    I'm not talking about all these land plots of 1000-3000 sq. m. with old houses from the beginning of the last century located on them - which can be demolished and built in their place the house that you personally want.

    Contrary to myths, this is not smoke. It's mostly water vapor.

    A short look at how the modern river transportation system operates in Moscow ...



    With a ticket costing 150 rubels, it must be the most cost effective river boat tourism ever Shocked
    Plus it is already included in other city limits long term tickets, 90 days and a yearly ones.
    Kids up to 7 y/o travel for free.

    And the river bus is electric...

    The Voronezh region, the village of Novaya Usman (about 10 kilometers from Voronezh) is the largest settlement in Russia with the status of a village. The population is over 35 thousand people.
    Starting from the timing of 36:45 - the Yuzhny microdistrict. All the buildings that you will see in this segment were built after 2000. Previously, this place was just a field.

    Thanks for that video.
    That super-village will put to shame many larger cities in planning, zoning, amenities and quality of life. Some very nice houses there.
    The video is 2 years old. That super-village must have grown further since then.

    well, this is a pretty shitty quality (I did it on a regular mobile phone), but I think it can be compared to how typical Russia is portrayed in Western media)))
