Laura Brown's insight:

Not technically urban exploration, but I like to see what happens to the urban abandoned places as much as I like to see them before they are reclaimed.

Roofs of Saint Petersburg | English Russia

Roofs of Saint Petersburg | English Russia | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it
That’s not an every-day occasion to see St. Pete from a height of 30 or 40 meters (100 feet and higher) as the highest building in the city is the Admiralty, or spire of Petropalovskaya fortress, which is just 72 meters high (240 feet) and it is forbidden to erect a building that is higher than the Admiralty.

So, roofers of St. Pete offer us a great opportunity to see how the city looks from the tallest houses located over there.

White Wall of Moscow | English Russia

White Wall of Moscow | English Russia | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it
Centuries ago Moscow was white. There were magnificent white walls around the city with white towers in the corners. Nowadays the Moscow Kremlin is Red and the remains of the white city is buried under the ground. Sometimes during the excavations or construction works in Moscow downtown the remains of these white walls can be found. Like this time, while building a multi-stored underground parking in Moscow downtime they use the old remains of something that could be of great interest for archeology as a good basis for the modern steel structures.
