Mulyarchik's metro
Leonid Mulyarchik wasn’t upset by the fact that he’s living in a small town without metro. He decided to build his own transport system! All the tunnels on the photos below were dug by one man! The inhabitants of the distant town of Lebedyan weren’t quite happy to see another group of guys coming to ...
