    The stadium "Zenit-Arena". View from the park "300 years of St. Petersburg".
    Beautiful photo. The optics of the football arena and of the gigantic highway bridge has succeeded.  

    ... but I do not like professional football and I do not like huge car roads. 
    What gigantic expenditure (40 billion rubles?) is done here, so that twenty-two (22!) persons can practice sport at the same time. :o)  ... and this illuminated road bridge has 8 car lanes? ...but no bicycle lane?! ... how sporty!  :o) 
    In the eyes of an old mad cyclist, these gigantic construction projects are monuments of insanity.

    New art- object on my street. " Pushkin had gone".
    Surely Pushkin was an intelligent, educated man. For his literary art I have huge respect. 
    However, to me is incomprehensible, why such an intelligent man, because of his wife, fights a gun shooting duel with his brother-in-law. Why does such an intelligent man find no other way to resolve his conflict? 
    It's a pity that Pushkin had to go so young.

    Today I viewed my Russia photos again. This was a magnificent church with the mosaics. The St Basil Cathedral in Moscow is also spectacular with its coloured domes and plain architecture inside. Both unique in its own way.
