Engels and Skobelevsky Prospekt.
The Uranus cinema is probably the
smallest cinema in the city.
A "Stalin" block of flats nearby.

contemporary addition, and now they are very upset that they are not
allowed to carry out large constructions because Ozerki is a listed
Note that there are no crosses.
A monumental house (the clergyman's
house?) by the Baptist Church.
A view of the Upper (First) lake in
Ozerki with the "Tarzan" mast above the beach.
