Day in the village

The author went to a typical Belarusian village and is willing to share his impressions of the trip. He tried to compare where it's better to live in Russia or Belarus. To say that he was shocked - this is to say nothing. For the first time entering the Belarusian village feel real culture shock. Listening to the stories of his time in his friends a lot about rural life seemed unreal and exaggerated. However, when I myself first visited the Belarusian village, I realized that the stories are not described, and half of what I saw with my own eyes.

My father was born in the area of ​​willows Saratavskoy child every summer I went to his home in the small village of Great car. Previously, there was a huge grain fields, dozens of farms, granaries, schools. There was even a ferris wheel. Today there is complete devastation and poverty. The collective farms collapsed. Artwork is not. Everyone who could, left and who could not, drags his impoverished existence.
The Belarusian village is not so. All very nice, and beautifully developed.

Let's start in order
Daraganovo village is located about 140 km from Minsk. Given the fact that the whole of Belarus in the width and length of not more than 500 km, the distance decent. I specifically did not choose the richest village in the country. Daraganovo is the most common, the average village, no worse and no better than the others. Unfortunately I shot today, and not in the spring. Part of the beauty is hidden under a layer of snow, but the general idea I think you can get. So.

The village is a great paved road. The road is constantly patching and mending. Any holes, cracks and chips on it is not, and is installed at the entrance road sign

All roads in the village are a bunch of road signs.

And the signs are not only on the main road, but in all the surrounding. There are also road markings, but it is not visible under the snow

From the village shuttle bus to the regional center. You can wait here in this cozy bus stop

Most people prefer to use the train. They go 6 times a day.

In daraganovo have a magnificent railway station. From here you can not just go to the nearest district center Osipovichi. Just here for trains to St. Petersburg and Moscow.
The station building, though old, but very nice and tidy. Despite the fact that only the night was snow, all the tracks have been cleaned.

Near the station a lot of benches. Near each urn is.

If it's cold outside, you can wait for the train station building in a cozy

There are always very clean, bright and warm. In the corner is the living plants. Very nice.

Constant attribute of any public place, comfortable clean urn

Everything is done with taste. More like a small station somewhere in Germany

In addition to the station in the village there are a lot of things. For example the three grocery stores. One of them is the state, and other commercial

There are of course fruits and vegetables. By the way, note. Most of the products (approximately 85%) in Belarus. All this thanks to state support and import programs substitution. Under this program, any manufacturer could set up production of goods, identical import. And if he will not concede to foreign analogues, and as an entrepreneur will be able to provide sufficient supplies, the import analogue temporarily prohibited from being imported into the country. The country already has all sorts of sneakers and Marsi local production. Very tasty
