On that day I was starting my tour through seven countries (Ukraine, Poland, Germany, Belgium, France, Luxemburg and Czech Republic) from Kharkiv’s railway station to get by train to Lviv, where the bus travel was to set in.
The building in the background is Kharkiv’s Railway Post Office built in 1929 according to the project developed by the well-known Soviet architect Arkadiy Grigoryevich Mordvinov in the Constructivist architectural style. It is at the same Privokzalna Square as the railway station itself.
The yellow-blue (of the colors of Ukraine’s flag) word УКРПОШТА means “Ukr[ainian] Mail”.

Excellent presentation of this railways station with a POV well selected. Details and colors welle collected under a beautiful blue sky. The large FG and the composition in differents plans give a great depht to the image. I like the water's play which give a very graphic nad dynamic efect.
Have a nice week,

Привет, Сергей. с возвращением!

Hi Sergiy, I noticed that you were absent, so you went for the tour. You were in Poland also. Why not in Warsaw, and if you were, why I haven't seen you? I am looking forward to your impressions. So here is where your trip started. УКРПОШТА - funny . Well, excellent photo of this Soviet constructivist style, better than socrealistic later.Warm regards

Railway stations and post offices used to be important public buildings, and not only in the former Soviet block!
This is a fine example, where they have put effort in architecture and construction...
I like the composition, it is well balanced and has a fine feeling of depth!

i'm very impressed by one simple thing....the level of light management.
I'm sure if i took this photo, it would have been overexposed.
beautiful combinations of whites, greys and blues.
very clear and sharp.
