I'm going to turn on the light, and we'll be two people in a room looking at each other and wondering why on earth we were afraid of the dark. - Gale Wilhelm

We are all apt to believe what the world believes about us. - George Eliot

Sosnovy Bor

This city of over 60,000 people is one of the youngest by Russian historical standards. It was first settled in 1958 but officially became a city in 1973. Located 80 kilometers (50 miles) from St. Petersburg, it was once a closed city to foreigners because of the Northwestern Center of Nuclear Power.

We hope this list will continue to grow as more communities become represented on the World Wide Web so please be sure to let us know if you are aware of any other sites.

    Frozen tundra . . prison camps?



    Siberia? No, as long time friend Sergei Parinov explains on his www site entitled, "Siberia: Culture, Economy, Business." There is lots to learn about this enormous part of the world and Sergei is a good teacher.
