mining town Alaverdi's Soviet tour
copper mine plant still in use, cable car parked in midair, punk yellow bus, once Sex plastic sheets replace office windows and dilapidated residential buildings. . . It is not difficult to see that Alaverdi in northern Armenia is a typical former Soviet mining town. Perhaps because of the high mountain emperor, there is no de-Sovietization here, and it is impossible to invest in modernization due to poverty. In this way, the wild and desolate Soviet elements and the naked poverty are preserved in such a way that it is really a heart-warming and visual feast every step! It is a pity that many people have finally placed North Armenia, but they have just rushed to check out the two world heritage monasteries in the town.
