“On the edge of the Earth” is a Russian idiom coming from the times when the Earth was considered to be a flat object in the middle of the ocean. People thought it could be crossed on foot from edge to edge. Centuries have passed developing the scientific views but even nowadays we say: “on the edge of the Earth” as if there is an invisible border between our world and the mysterious unknown one.
It is on this very border where a small coastal village is situated. The endless translucent sky unites misty mountains disappearing in the distance, houses clinging to each other, boats drawn out of the water and cold ground half covered with snow. The fresh frosty air is conveyed so convincingly that in a moment you can easily find yourselves on the edge of the Earth amid the icy mountains wrapped in the cold sea air.
