Bridge of Sighs

Sometimes ugly things attract even more attention then the beautiful ones.

This passage between two buildings is located on an island in the center of Moscow. It is the confectionery plant founded in 1867 (the red bricks belong to that time). The island smelled of vanilla, but now the smell slowly disappears, because the factory is slowly carried away and replaced by art galleries, art shops and restaurants.
The place is so unique, we will post more of it for sure.

The factory was completed in Soviet times and the passage is one of the proofs. Maybe its author was inspired by the Bridge of Sighs in Venice. Anyway, I thought about Venice when did the photo :-)
I will try to get inside, promise.
