    What good Russian webcams do you like to watch?

    So like this isn't strictly about photography but this section is pretty empty so it's not like I am clogging it up. I have been watching different webcams in Russia for years. Some of them have turned off, like in Tver. But there's still quite a few that I like. It's amazing how many cameras are available for just anyone to watch.

    My favorite is Медвежьегорск. You can see the train station and the bus station. There's a cafe just below the camera. Before COVID, you'd see a constant stream of cars and taxis at night with people walking out with numerous cups of beer. And there were numerous drunken fights and brawls. You were guaranteed to see fights on New Years. The camera used to point down more but they repointed it when they started the renovation of the town square. I wish they would point it down again.

    Glazov has a nice camera system. They just replaced their camera overlooking the city square and river. It provides really beautiful sunrise pics at certain times of the year. Also, I like to watch the cams at the bus stop near the bridge. They are really clear.

    Another one I like is Vorkuta. Their cameras have an automated pan/tilt/zoom routine so you get a wider view. Camera 2 is best. Also, Vorkuta is pretty far North so they have more snow than most places.

    Anybody else got any cams to share?

    I used to watch some ski resort cams in the US. Problem is, they were in the same time zone so it was usually dark when I went to look at them. But on the weekends it was good.

    There's a whole bunch of cams in Petrozavodsk. I haven't looked at them enough to find any particularly good ones. Well, cam 103 shows the frozen lake so that's interesting during the day:

    I tried looking at a number of those but they wouldn't work for me. I even tried turning off my VPN. I think maybe it's because I'm coming from a foreign IP? Not sure, but the Tver cams don't work anymore for me, either.

    I don't mean it in a bad way, but I don't consider Moscow to really be part of Russia. Of course, it is but it is so different from the rest of the country. Sort of like I don't consider New York City to be representative of the US. Foreigners who have only visited NYC don't really know anything about America. I've looked at Moscow cams in the past but I generally like looking at the smaller towns that don't seem to have so much foreign influence.

    I just checked, they don't work for me either. Yes Moscow is like it's own country within a country. Technically I live in Moscow but we are surrounded by forest and farms, there is only 2500 people who live here. It's like a little village. It's really beautiful here, quite and clean, no crime and it takes one hour to get to the metro.

    The one I looked at is Flash-driven, and Flash doesn't work on many browsers now.

    Has anybody asked the FSB or MVD which one of their many 'webcams' they recommend?
