Visaginas - atominis miestas
Lithuania is proud of a city which is seriously stuck in time.
a city which begins with a Cosmos street (Kosmoso g.)
and a city with a closed-down nuclear plant.
its name is Visaginas and its located in the Northern-East of Lihuania.
i thought Visaginas could possibly feel like North Korea,
with all its blockhouses and perfectly planned infrastructure
for the former Russian engineers.
yet, at the same time i was pleasantly surprised by its nature:
forests and lakes, and social/cultural heritage
exotic to discover again.
in the mood of post-soviet, Visaginas population
mostly speaks in Russian.
despite that, more and more freelance artists are
moving to live here.
i believe, that's because of Visaginas nature
which has a strong inspirational effect.
