I actually watched two videos about Russia last night. But I found this one the most captivating.
This second video is also worthwhile. But, on the whole, I find Russian aesthetics to be a bit clunky for my liking. It’s like they never really get it “quite right.” Totally subjective, I know. But that’s how I usually see it.
There are exceptions, of course, like the still image for this video. Also, the Russian subways are pretty impressive. However, I couldn’t help but wonder how many Russian peasants suffered – maybe starved to death – so the Gov. could afford such splendor.
