  1. Seems like all these are derelict. The designs are surreal, some vandalized by later generations, others clearly left over from the Soviet era.

    I can pick out common Russian childhood characters like “Masha i Medved” and the like and it’s kind of hauntingly evoking how these characters are sometimes poorly depicted in form and then lost to time under flaking paint, chipping wood, and graffiti. Growing up to these in their prime would have been a warm experience. Growing up to these in the condition they are in now…would be an interesting experience.

    I have to say though that some seem like they were poorly done or so oddly designed that they bring out laughs and makes me scratch my head without losing their touch of being downright creepy when you look at it as that.
