The BBC has a culturally interesting photo set on garages in Murmansk, Russia. Apparently, the garages are often built far away from the apartment blocks in which people live.

A couple of pics with captions from the BBC:


"It is a tradition that the men build the garages themselves. Many of them were illegally built, though a few months ago there was an amnesty for unregistered garages."



"When a car has been repaired they celebrate. It is a tradition to eat home-made pickles and drink vodka, so in most garages there is a good store of supplies."



Here's a great quote from what the BBC describes as one of "many mystified women": "It is strange that behind all these doors, inside all these garages without windows, there is so much going on, like it's a secret society."
