The Russian submarine K-159 is waiting to be fished from the bottom
The world will finally be able to exhale! The sunken Soviet submarine K-159 is waiting to be pulled above the surface. When it was towed to breakdown location in 2003, a tragedy occurred, which ended in the deaths of 7 men and caused an ecological catastrophe, as two reactors sunk to the bottom of the Barents Sea. The 800 kilograms of spent uranium fuel become a nightmare for all fishermen and ecologists. Russia has been promising to remedy the environmental impacts for many years, and now it looks like it's finally about to follow through. In a decree from March, Vladimir Putin promised to pull two Soviet nuclear submarines and four reactor chambers out of the bottom, reducing the amount of radioactive material in the Arctic Ocean by as much as 90 percent.

Stromovka comes up with an unconventional idea
The trees in Stromovka got their name. As part of the "Trees You Want to Know" project, 134 nameplates were installed on 94 tree species and cultivars in the central parts of the Royal Game Reserve.

"Stromovka is exceptional for its completely unique collection of woody plants, ever since the beginning of the 19th century. Now visitors are offered the opportunity to learn something about the trees. The professional public will also come into their own, because a lot of the trees are truly unique,"
