Tobolsk, founded as a center for the development of Siberia in 1587, is located in the north of the Tyumen region.
In 1912, Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky, the pioneer of color photography in the Russian Empire, visited it and took some photos. Thanks to him we can see what has changed since that time

Alexey Belous, a graphic designer from Tula, created 44 awesome posters for the World Cup in Russia - all cities/stadiums and national teams.
A lot of them are rather abstract or show some stereotypes common in Russia, for example, Australia where people walk "upside down"
