Some time ago I went to Russian ice hockey in Ezhva (a remote area of Syktyvkar). Our region is one of the few where bandy is still cultivated.
But the main impression was the sky. Fog (smog?) from Mondi Syktyvkar.
Please don't buy real estate there :(
On the left — Ezhva, on the right — not Ezhva. Filmed half an hour apart. During the day in the center it was even clearer.
