    Communism in Hungary may have ended in 1989, but on the outskirts of Budapest there is a park where you can still feel it.

  • Independence Square, Kiev, Ukraine

    Independence Square, Kiev, Ukraine

    Situated at the northern end of Khreschatyk, Kiev’s Independence Square received global media attention in 2004 as the focal point of Ukraine’s Orange Revolution. Orange-clad demonstrators gathered in the Independence Square in Kiev during November, 2004. On some days, the number of protesters in the center of Kiev reached hundreds of thousands (one million by some estimates). Today, things have calmed down a little and the tented city that sprung up overnight has long gone. Independence Square, however, is still the city’s most popular spot for meetings, late night drinking and people watching.

  • Kaliningrad

    written by jogintas on 2008-04-27 in #world #locations

    Have you been in Russia? If yes (the main part of it with St. Peter or Moscow), then try Kaliningrad Oblast, or Kaliningrad Area and especially the main town itself. It is situated near the Poland and Lithuania and still has got a pure sense of USSR. Imagine that there are still numbers on the shops, like magazine No.34 in one village and magazine No.35 in the next village just 3 kilometers away.

    The Park with Rocks

    The Park with Rocks is my favorite park in Constanta. However, this is not its real name. I have been calling it by this name since I was little, as this particular park is full of large rocks. But if you look closely, you will find that they are quite special!

  • Gyeongju

    written by lomography on 2008-05-09 in #world #locations

    This city is known as an 'outdoor museum', for good reason. Everywhere you look there are ancient buildings, Buddha statues, old temples and, best of all, giant mounds called 'tumuli' in which are buried the bones of ancient kings. Most tumuli are just huge, bare, grassy hills, but one in particular draws me again and again. This tomb of a 1300-years-dead king has about six trees on it - Tim Burtony, craggy trees.

  • Trail Dust Town

    Trail Dust Town

    Here are few photos from Trail Dust Town in Tucson Arizona. A cheesy little relic of the old west. Of course they have a little troth for gold panning, an old photo studio (the kind where you dress up and hold fake guns and they print them sepia toned), gift shops, a live stunt show, and an arcade. As fun as this all is, a majority of the time I was pointing my Lubitel around with a bit of 70mm magic inside. You be the judge of the results. Take the afternoon, evening or what ever and have a hootin and hollerin good time. They have two restaurants there that aren't bad and plenty to see and do. I wouldn't plan on a full day as it's pretty small and there is a lot of other things to see and do in Tucson.
