The beaches of Ussuri Bay, Russia were once off limits to bathers. Located in the northeastern part of Peter the Great Gulf, it was formerly known as a Soviet-era industrial hub for glass making. During Soviet times, shards of glass and porcelain littered the beach from years of careless dumping and litter-filled river run-off. Today “Glass Beach,” is one of the most uniquely beautiful in the world. Nature has kindly taken care of the danger through tidal action, leaving behind nothing but tumbled glass—pieces of bright blues, greens, reds, and all shades in between. Photographers from the Siberian Times have documented the unique beauty of “Glass Beach.” Please take a look.
