Saratov – Boys Toys and Military Might Grrr.   Leave a comment

Two words to sum up Saratov…don’t bother. Currently top of my list as the armpit of Russia. It has a nightmare illogical, unsigned road system. The only saving grace is the Victory Park on the outskirts of town, which is the final resting place for old Soviet (and the odd German captured) military hardware.  You may be able to tell from the pictures on our visit it was hammering it down with rain on our visit, hence the dull looking pictures (despite my best efforts on photoshop to brighten them up).  The evening before we arrived in Saratov, we had beautiful sunshine and another great sunset.  We camped by the side of a potatoe field of all places.  Enjoy the sunset and the military grrrrrr of the once mighty Soviet Union.
