Hi all, I've been accepting new members and have noticed posts that are not in English. One of the rules of this community is that if someone is posting in their first language that they include an English translation as well. When this community was created it was English based so a lot of our members know it. I have noticed we are getting more Russian members who watch us and that is cool! I don't mind comments in different languages but the entries themselves must have an English translation (you can even use online translators if you like).
Thank you!

Всем привет! После приема новых членов сообщества появилось много сообщений не на английском языке. Одно из правил этого сообщества гласит, что если кто-то разместил пост на своем родном языке, то он должен добавить перевод на английский. Изначально оно создавалось англоязычным, и большинству наших участников это известно.
У нас появилось много русских участников, и это здорово! Я не имею ничего против комментариев на разных языках, но изначально пост должен содержать перевод на английский. Вы даже можете использовать онлайн-переводчики.

Thank you to seahorski

There are Nizhnedevitsky (Voronezh region) complex of ancient buildings - pre-revolutionary buildings higher Primary School: Academic Building, home inspector, workshops. Two-storey academic building with classical details, built in the early 20th century, in the modern era, stands out among the predominant one-storey private building and remembered appearance.
In neighboring Lipetsk region in Zadonsk, caught the eye of a similar structure. When comparing the images turned out that the same project, and was also built to higher primary school. And Valuyki (Belgorod region): the same project and also a former higher initial ...
In Valuyki school building is considered the architect A. Kunicha - county technician Valuyskaya rural council, who built many of the beautiful and of a good for the city and county. Probably the school project was borrowed zemstvoes neighboring Voronezh province or Kunichevu was made some centralized order. Find any information about this failed, except for the date of construction - three buildings in different cities were built in the same time - 1912-14. Perhaps the structure of this project were built and some other neighboring counties.

Other Information The original design was executed by the Wiener Werkstatte and only 4 were ever made, one of which sits in the National Museum of Decorative Arts, Vienna. This example was made in 1905 as a special commission and was varied by the craftsmen who made it so as not to incur legal problems. The original is 25cm high and this vase is 38cm high. Also the top is bowed whereas the original is flat. This piece is superbly made and we suspect that it was made by a former craftsman at the Weiner Werkstatte.

(Оригинал придуман Коломаном Мозером) Так же изменен верх, в оригинале он прямой, здесь имеет наклон.

These pictures show some houses of Praag Bubenec.
The industrial revolution caused in Europe a great migration of working class people to the quick expanding and smoky cities.
This was a reason for  the nouveau riches to look for better dwelling conditions.  In the outskirts of the cities, parc towns came into  existence.
Recently we visited one of these places: Praag Bubeneč.
Nowadays it is surrounded by other extensions of Prague and  you have to face the mad trafficways to get there. But once there,  the old atmosphere is still to feel . Tall trees, room and rest,  and indescribable  beautiful houses.
Many in Art Nouveau, some in the style of the Vienna Secession, nowadays often embassies.P1020218 (Medium)

Recently we visited the Czech town  Jablonec nad Nisou and I was stunned by the amount of Jugendstil architecture there.
Complete streets, house beside house, were covered with Art Nouveau stucco work and the absolute highlight was the Old Catholic Church which is built in the style of the Vienna Secession. A photographic impression:
