Old Soviet era bus shelters

Click any image to enlarge
These pictures come from the Vintage Everyday post Strange Soviet Bus Stops. There is no  commentary with the post, so the only reason I know what the structures are is from the title. Why they are so elaborately designed is a mystery to me.  It also isn't clear how remote they are. Some seem to be in the middle of nowhere, others show at least a few building in the background. 

Whatever the answer to those questions, they are marvelous little buildings. A surprising amount of effort went into designing and decorating them. I wonder what the buses that service them are like?

There are more samples after the jump, and even more at the above link.
