The Friday photo – A Soviet WWII mosaic in Uzbekistan

To finish every week travel-inspired, I tell you every Friday about one of the photos of my blog’s header.

This week, I’ve selected a photo taken in September 2012 in Uzbekistan. It is a detail of a mosaic showing Soviet soldiers.

This mosaic is part of Qarshi’s WWII monumental monument, which is one of the most bizarre places I’ve ever visited as it’s abandoned by the authorities to young dating couples who hide there to hang out far from their families’ condemn.

If Soviet art is a bit your thing, you can also have a look at my blog that compares Soviet art and Catholic art. Enjoy!
