20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Village of pigs

During our former communist times, this town appeared after Russians came her to extract uranium. After 1989, step by step the mines were shut down - so it happened here, leaving this place blocked between time levels. But peoples are still alive, living in traditionally country side way, but in a block of flats...A sad view, but still quite funny
