Default Photos Donetsk city, Ukraine - Pittsburgh sister city.

I was in Pittsburgh a few of month ago, my first time in Pittsburgh. Let me just say that I was impressed! The city is very nice and I was amazed. I hope to comeback to soon.

I am from Donetsk (Ukraine), and I wanted to show photos of my city.
Donetsk - ex-USSR (Soviet Union) now Ukraine is industrial centre of Ukraine(Steel, machine-building, coal-mining).

Donetsk its a Pittsburgh sister city (or brother).

Here are photos of Donetsk:

What amazing parks!

In general I am flashing back to my brief visit to Odessa--I'll definitely have to get back to Ukraine some day.
