Embankment, Azov sea, sea-port and the pavillion.
Invariable Lenin monument at the square on the sea-front.
Stone beach, a big dipper and Khruschov-time blocks on the embankment.
Here is the old amusement park. The so called 3rd beach is right behind the park.
Dog on a gas station.
"Bullhead the feeder", monument of the little fish, used to save people of the hungry death during the hard times.
Pushkin monument. I like this one especially since the roll in his hand looks like a bottle.
Statue of a sanitary technician, coming out from a hatch. There is a place for a cigarette in his mouth and the tourists usually put one there.
Remains of the Berdyansk's industry. When I was shooting these buildings with my big camera, a worker from the nearby gas station came to me and said: "right, you should shoot all this for your news-paper". Well, we have no news-paper so far, but still there is the Internet.
Performance of the Berdyansk dance group called "Cascade" at the festival of children and teenage creativity.
This dance was especially cool. It was performed to a song in German called "Mitternacht" (Midnight).
Spectators of the festival under the Lenin monument. The stage was installed right on the sea-front square.
Children having fun in front on the stage.
Little girl trying to mimic the dance of the teenage girls on the stage.
These children sang the real song for the immigrant heart about Ukraine. I could hardly resist.
Katya, daugther of my old friend Alexey who lives in Berdyansk.
