DEC 21, 18 .. Part 2 of 3 .. Shushenskoye ( Шушенское ) .. WE'RE GOING BACK WHERE CAPTAIN?

To refresh your memories, Mike and I, along with two friends here in Abakan, made a road trip yesterday to visit the Sayano–Shushenskaya Dam which is said to be the highest dam in Russia.

En route to the dam, we stopped at Shushenskoye (Шушенское) a small village of some 19,000 people. I posted a map on dot.net showing its location. Below is a link to yesterday's post showing the map.

This small village / hamlet has a certain measure of fame! In 1897 one Vladimir Lenin was exiled here for his promoting anti-government policies. He remained here until 1900.

In my Post of yesterday, I showed you photos of the cafe here in Shushenskoye ( Шушенское ) where we ate lunch. In this post I am going to show you some additional photos taken in this small village, in Russian Siberia, where all of us, starting with me, may never return in body or in spirit. In memory? Oh yes!

Entering  Shushenskoye ( Шушенское ).



By photographing city limit signs, I am sure of the proper spelling of the names of the towns and villages we visit. Doing this here in Russia is vital because of the complex names and spelling of so many locations.



Not only do I use city limit signs to confirm the correct spellings, I use any visual opportunity that presents itself to me.

Another beautiful Russian Orthodox Church.

In the below photo, notice the church, to the right of center, peeking out at us from behind the cafe where we enjoyed lunch.









The Historical and ethnographical museum-preserve.








My friend Alexander shot the below photo of me. On the left side of the below photo you can see the large exterior display of buildings that are part of the museum. We did not go out into the yard. I hate to admit this, but with a severe wind practically blowing me off my feet, it was a tad too cold to go out into the yard here in Shushenskoye in Russian Siberia.


A few general interest photos of Shushenskoye (Шушенское) village.




Now for something I consider special. Ice sculptures.






All of this here in Shushenskoye (Шушенское) village.

  1. Glad you did not feel the need to go outdoors at the museum in the cold and wind. Fun to see the ice scultures under way of being created. Smiles, Patti

  2. Not only was it cold out in the yard, we simply did not have the time to go out there. Getting to the enormous dam was top priority and we ended up not having so much as one minute to spare. Just wait until I put up the post on ice sculptures here in Abakan today, Saturday, the 22nd. Photographing them My Dear One was what I was doing in the park yesterday, Friday the 21st. Much Love ..
