Typical view of Magnitogorsk

Taken from the intersection that leads to the large Orthodox church. The apartment buildings are typical of the city and where probably 90% of the population lives. Its a very rectangular city with a good tram system to get you around.

Russian Orthodox Church in Magnitogorsk

Built a few years ago, its one of the most impressive structures in the city.

A new sports arena is being built to the left of where the picture was taken.

Train station

The Magnitogorsk train station. Interesting pink color makes it stand out and its the main transportation center of the city.

    Scott, lovely little page about this Soviet style city. Together with Nowa Hut near Krakow in Poland, Magnitogorsk is said to be the only entirely planned social-realist city in the world.
