per rq: This retired man always wanted to live in a castle. The ‘blockhouse’ (direct translation, really just an apartment building) as shown in the photo is one of those common across the entire former Soviet territory. There’s jokes and movies about how similar cities look due to masses and masses of these buildings (they also used to be identical on the inside). Anyway, this guy is individualizing the stairwell in the most fantastic manner. I’d like to live in a castle, too, just maybe not so blue. Anyroad, this is most impressive!
