    I really love looking at vintage photos. Places are so different compared to now. The place you posted looks so peaceful!

    Sophie, Did you go to Leningrad in 1984? I went in 1987!

      Yes, to Leningrad and Moscow. It was February, freezing cold, very foreign and very exciting. I haven’t been back since.

    it`s not a Nevskij Prospekt, it`s a Krasnoputilovskaja ulitsa (street)

    This street is located on the outskirts of town and can not be even Nevsky Prospect in 1984. That’s Nevsky Prospect.http://maps.yandex.ru/?ll=30.376919%2C59.925910&spn=0.022016%2C0.005773&z=16&l=map%2Cpht&ol=pht&oll=30.382044%2C59.924719&oid=img_76829932%3A224655

    Sveta and Falcon,
    Thanks for pointing that out. I must have noted the wrong street name in my photo album. I will change the title. :)

    Looks like the Midwest in the middle of January during the polar vortex … can feel the cold just by looking at it!
