Amur Region: Tynda
December 15, 2017 23:12


Tynda, the northernmost and youngest town of the Amur Region, is even called the capital of BAM. A third of the population works on the railway; “Tynda” railway station is almost the main town-forming enterprise. The railway line reached the place at the end of 1930s, but Tynda was actively settled and built up already during 1960s.

In the mid-1970s the settlement became a town; hard working Komsomol members from all over the country rushed there. Most likely, the majority of young builders came from Moscow: how else could the central street of Tynda get the name of Krasnaya Presnya? The only outstanding building of the city, the railway station, also has a completely Moscow style: futuristic grotesque of 1980s.

By the way, the project of this railway station once won the first prize at the International Contests of Architectural Complexes held in Sofia. Not all local 16-storey buildings are this notable; they belong to the same series of buildings as the houses built in the capital for the athletes participating in the Olympics 1980. The only local museum is dedicated, of course, to the history of the Baikal-Amur Mainline.
