Forbidden City Oil Platforms

In 1950, Soviet engineers began building a huge city in the Caspian Sea off the coast of Azerbaijan. It was a network of oil platforms, interconnected by hundreds of kilometers of roads. On these islands was built housing for 5,000 workers, with a cinema, parks, sports complexes and other institutions.

In 1999, part of the James Bond film “And the Whole World Is Not Enough” was filmed on these platforms. But back to the story.

Interesting facts about Krasnoyarsk

Russia is a huge and great country that is rich in great and wonderful cities. I would like to talk about each separately. Let’s start with the largest city of Siberia – Krasnoyarsk. We will hold a small excursion. The godfather of Krasnoyarsk, the initiator of its construction was the first Yenisei voivode Yakov Ignatievich Khripunov, appointed to Yeniseisk in 1623. It was he who sent his relative Andrei Anufrievich Dubensky with the Cossacks up the Yenisei – to look after the place for the construction of the prison, which from the south would cover Yeniseisk from the raids of “non-peaceful” local residents and ensured the collection of tribute from the Kachinsky Tatars. Andrey Dubensky left a horse on the bank of the Yenisei, threw a sword on the ground and said that a city would be founded on this place. That is why the Strelka has a white horse monument dedicated to the Russian explorers of Siberia. Continue reading
