Second day, a really nice sunny day, took the bus 85C to the hill (got off next to the station: фуникулёр(Funicular), the place is actually called Eagle's Nest Mount, no idea how it's called in Russian, but people understand where "фуникулёр" is. Enjoyed the great view of the golden horn here.
Golden bridge with Matryoshka doll (матрёшка)
This used to be a church, in honor of Sveti Kirill and Sveti Mefodij, more info:
After the view point, I walked a way from the touristic area, and got deeper inside to these communist blocks.
This is the interior, EV+2.0 so imagine how dark it is actually. each floor has around 60 flats, similar to old public housing in Hongkong, but as I was told, there is no kitchens in these flats, small size of the rooms, problematic neibours, result in low rent. I didn't experience anything bad, but did saw some hateful speech on the wall, related to racism.
Another side of these wires are connected to the fences on the hill, which creates extra clothes hanging place for the residents, supposed to be DIY work by the residents.
Decoration on boring communist architectures
Wooden houses on the way back to the centre
As well as an Orthodox church
Back to the harbourfront promende, the bridge was just above me, this is the golden bridge heading to Russkij Island
Pedestrians are allowed to walk on the bridge! I walked to another size of the golden horn, but wind was really strong, with the temperature 13'c, no next time, given that the bus ride is only 19руб, but this is, for tourist, a must visit spot in the city because of the view, and it's free of charge.

This scenery reminds me my childhood in housing estate很強的徙置區風味
