Victory Day at the Lenin Library...


Even Dostoevsky is getting in on the build-up to the Victory Day celebrations!


The Lenin Library is quite impressive... I've never actually been inside it, though. I wanted to access files there in 1991 when doing research for my thesis, but wasn't allowed.


Another view of the photo from above... I just love the contrast of the bright flags and the black/white statue and library!

When did you have time to take all the pictures with the week you've had?

Are you having as beautiful Victory Day weather as we had last year?

And...will you be seeing the fireworks? I'm guessing not. =)
