This is some Videos of what the Villages and Towns in Russia look like from the main Highways! This was taken on one of our trips to Northern Russia and we were in our old model 2410 Volga!
Towns will extend along ways on the length of a road, but not go very far from the road. Villages many times will be located several km from the paved roads on dirt trails. (this is my observation and I am sure Russians look at it differently)
Some towns have paved roads, where I have yet to see a village with paved roads. I get very confused what is a town and what is a village. (My Wife Knows)
Now you have seen a little more about Russia!
