It is something that you woun't see from a tourist bus window, a real life. Nothing ever really changes, does it? A decent sewer system is more rare than one would expect and the electricity supply is also really outdated and all facilities are pretty basic...

Probably you will think it?s almost third world because of the lack of modern amenities but that?s not the point. The point is, these people are perfectly happy.

It's Chernava, Lipetcky region.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
