Kharkov street

So, my friend Jasilyn mentioned there's a street in Ufa, Russia called Kharkov street. Check it out!

Урамы must be either Tatar or Bashkir? Both are common languages in Ufa.

Fun fact of the day: turns out there are lots of Kharkov / Kharkiv streets. You can find one in Minsk, Moscow, Orenburg, Lviv, Tyumen, St. Petersburg, Dnipro, Almaty, Vladivostok... and in at least 18 other cities! Wikipedia actually has a list of all the streets here.

I found some street views of these streets. (Unfortunately, no street views from Kazakhstan or Belarus.) It's kind of cool to see how they look in real life.

Kirovohrad, Ukraine.
Orenburg, Russia.
Vladivostok, Russia.
Dnipro, Ukraine.
Tyumen, Russia.
Lviv, Ukraine.
Moscow, Russia.

Kharkiv itself has one of these streets, too- wouldn't it be weird if it didn't? It's somewhere out near the airport, intersecting with Dostoevsky Street and Odessa Street.

Kharkiv, Ukraine.

Anyway, this is just a short, random post, since I couldn't believe it when Jasilyn pointed out a Kharkov street in her city! :)


  1. I should have taken a picture of the street! It's not as interesting or pretty as some of the places, like Lviv. The other writing is Bashkir!

    1. Bashkir seems cool! Have you picked up a few words and phrases just from seeing it all the time?

    2. Only the word for groceries and flowers. haha oh, and "hello" but if I tried to say it I probably won't say it right.

  2. I love using Google earth to "explore" cities! This post makes me long for that region of the world!

    1. This was the first time I'd really done any virtual "exploring" like that... it was really fun! :) Have you visited any of those cities?

    2. Yes, I have only been to Moscow though!

  3. That is pretty interesting to see what all those streets look like in different cities and countries! I just love Google Street View that way :)
