Wiki-ramble in Sestroretsk
- Translated from the Russian Wikinews article В Сестрорецке прошла вики-экскурсия
The participants had examined past-glorious Sestroretsk Armory (Сестрорецкий инструментальный завод) buildings and made a walk through park/resort part of the town where many historical buildings are situated, wooden houses of Art Nouveau architectural style among them.
Despite the fact that Sestroretsk is a popular recreational destination, there are lack of quality photos of local cultural heritage monuments at Wikimedia Commons. Given the fact that many historical buildings in Sestroretsk are currently half-destroyed and may even fully extinct at any time, to picture them now is obviously important task. That's why the wiki-ramble was not only dedicated to sightseeing, but also had culturological value.
The participating Wikipedians Красный, ssr, Екатерина Борисова and Ain92 decided to create a Wikimedia user group of Russian-Northwestern "local-wiki-historians" for further collaboration on various types of Wiki-editing based on Cultural Heritage Lists at Russian Wikivoyage.
