In Bulgaria, nature leaves green legacy along Iron Curtain route | AFP

Lush chestnut forests and verdant pastures cover the northern slopes of the Belasitsa mountain range in southwestern Bulgaria, part of a surprising legacy of the Iron Curtain which once cut across this region.

Fashion behind the Iron Curtain (RT Documentary)

Those born with artistic taste and a love of all beauty were doomed if they were born in the Soviet Union. Practicality and uniformity dictated all spheres of life, including fashion. Our heroes begged to differ, becoming the vivid flecks on the Iron Curtain’s drab surface. Strange as it may sound, it was not fashionable to be fashionable in the USSR. The Soviet Union dictated that people should wear simple clothes made of cheap, rudimentary materials that would better suit the working class. But there is always someone who wants to think – and dress – outside the box. Slava Zaitsev and Leka Mironova were among those people in the USSR. Find out about the past and future of the famous Russian designer and the top Soviet model.
