Siberia, Russia Wooden Architecture

Siberia, Russia Wooden Architecture

Weathered, worn, forgotten and crumbling. Is this what you are looking for?

The town of Ulan Ude, Siberia does not disappoint the travel photographer who wants to be left alone to wander streets seeking out the remnants of another era. Although the city is physically removed from major hotspots, the modernism wave has touched remotest Siberia.  A concrete facade is replacing wooden structures of the last century.

You can digress incognito down most central residential streets, as most locals will not even notice your interest in the bridge to the past. Go about your investigation unfettered by what other people will think and focus on the unique construction from the hewers of woods era.
