PushkinoRU

Pushkino in the Tver Area in Russia has two village shops, since a few years a vital new gusli-music workshop and the old church is being refurbished. The village hall is built in 1972 and marked by a large Lenin painting on the front. The kolkhoz was closed in the nineties and a main transit road splits the village in two halves.
