Published 8 months ago

Canadian photographer Christopher Herwig embarked on this unique passion project to showcase the bus stops of the Soviets. Beginning in 2002, he travelled over 50,000 km from Ukraine to Uzbekistan, Armenia to Far Eastern Siberia in search of all the bus stops. 

Christopher’s decade-long project ‘SOVIET BUS STOPS – The Poetry of the Road’ premiered in 2022. Scroll below to check out a few select images from the photo series celebrating the architectural marvel of these peculiar structures.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
