For so long, the popularity of professional soccer in the United States has trailed dozens and dozens of other countries. Aside from more impassioned interest during World Cup years, soccer has been viewed as more of a niche sport inside the USA, one that not only lagged in recognition compared to other nations around the world but also registered as little more than a blip on the radar of other North American staples like football (NFL, NCAA), basketball (NBA), baseball (MLB) and hockey (NHL).

Recently, however, things have started to change. Major League Soccer (MLS) has never been more popular in the United States. Signs of growth have become undeniable.

Let’s walk through the main streets of Kyiv and see how they looked in 1985. After the Second World War, Kyiv became the third largest city in the Soviet Union after Moscow and Leningrad, the capital of the second largest Soviet republic.

The photos were taken one year before the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, which caused a significant deterioration in the environmental situation in the city, and 6 years before Kyiv became the capital of an independent Ukraine. Source

The picturesque Love Islet in the village of Staryi Solotvyn, in the middle of the Kodnyanka River, looks truly fabulous. And a small wooden hut, called the Fisherman’s House, gives this place a special mystery.

Love Islet is especially popular among newlyweds and lovers. It is a perfect place for photo shoots. Love Islet in Staryi Solotvyn on Google Maps. Photos by: Richard Zorge.

Mysterious underground maze of Odesa

Odesa, a large Ukrainian city on the Black Sea coast, is often called “The Pearl of the South”. But it is known not only for its beautiful architecture. Odesa has an incredible system of catacombs stretching even beyond the city limits.

Most of the catacombs are former quarries, in which shell stone was mined for the construction of Odessa. Mining was done chaotically and as a result a huge underground maze appeared.
