Imagine shrinking one-eighth of the world down to just 800 square meters. A group of designers have done just that, turning the vast expanses of the Russian Federation into a 3-D, interactive ‘SimRussia’ model of the world’s largest state.

Welcome to Russia’s mini-version of the Truman Show

Compressing nearly 53,000 miles of railroads takes a delicate touch

As does planting 20,000 miniature sunflowers by hand

Because it’s the utmost attention paid to the little things

Which make the big landmarks really shine

And you gotta wonder, do they have dashcams in miniature Russia?

Yeah, they’ve definitely got dashcams

What with all the the bandits...

And bears running about

But miniature Russia really does have it all!

It has been said: "If you want to meet the real Russian people, don't go to Moscow or St Petersburg. I have traveled from the east coast of Russia through southern areas to the Black sea in the west I have been to Moscow, St Petersburg and Vladivostok. The country reminded me of the USA in the 50s. The people were friendly, they want more say in the top down government. This is the type of government that is being forced upon the people of the USA. It limits liberty and freedom.

Interestin g that from the comments one can conclude that Russians are obsessed with creating things and americans are obsessed with destroying things. My body is in america, but my heart is in Russia.

Not too late still, you can always leave US for Moscow first thing morrow morning and never return. US will be one happy place to have one less non patriot like you gone.......

  


Oh please, people with attitudes like yours are exactly why I am now a Swiss citizen and no longer a US citizen. You really won't get it until you leave.
