Soviet bus stops

H/t @Slirt.

A German photographer documented 500 bus stops all over the former USSR. And they're wonderful.

Nick (Kyrgyzstan/Russia), Tarlan (Azerbaijan), and Sanchez (Kazakhstan): Are there still any near where you live?

I love them! I like Soviet architecture and design as much as I detest their politics.

Do you know this book: https://www.taschen.com/pages/en/catalogue/photography/all/05744/facts.frederic_chaubin_cosmic_communist_constructions_photographed.htm

I have it, and is beautiful.

I saw few like one with red and white ladas in front for sure, but only in the country, all bus stops within the city limits has been changed many times and most of them is up to modern standards.
