Bad bad city of Syktyvkar: Another dirty northern place in Russia

Bad bad city of Syktyvkar: Another dirty northern place in Russia

Ilya Varlamov, one of the most famous Russian bloggers has published a photo report from the ordinary northern city of Syktyvkar, Komi Republic, Russia. Some locals would say that it is a bad time to visit the city right after the winter when snow melts and trash is everywhere around. Or, they might say that the blogger only found the most horrible places of the city.. But let’s be honest, this is how the city looks like and all what people say is just poor excuses.

The author tells: all I found out is that people dislike their own city.. And, this seems to be true. Below you can see the photos of both centre and periphery side of Syktyvkar.

By the way, you can also see a lot of expensive cars, it usually belongs to rich oilmen

  • But it really is! In Komi, snowy winter (like 1.5 meters of snow all the time) lasts from october till april, so, after snow melts, for a couple weeks streets are covered with trash and cigarette butts, till janitors clean it. So, you can just throw away half of the photos, but sadly — only a half.

    City actually have awful parking organization, rainwater drains do not cope with their task. And roads in some places are f**king awful.
