EnglishHello, my name is Nikolaj Masnikov. I live in Berlin / Germany. Wherever I go I take my camera. I’ll show you a real life of this fantastic city. No clip arts, no third-party galleries — only original photos.

Deutsch Hallo! Mein Name ist Nikolaj Masnikov. Ich wohne in Berlin. Überall wo ich bin, habe ich meine Kamera mit. Ich zeige Ihnen das richtige Leben Berlins. Keine Clip Arts, keine fremde Bildergalerien — nur originelle Fotos.

Russian Всем привет! Меня зовут Николай Мясников. Наконец-то (2009.04.12) завел и русскую версию этого блога: «Живой Берлин». Несмотря на то, что форматы сайтов несколько отличаются, иногда фотоматериалы из одного будут попадать в другой.

  1. Can I make a suggestion (as a German-speaking Scot)? the quote at the top right of your site presumably started life as “einmal sehen…”. I’d like to suggest a better translation: “Seeing once is better than reading about a thousand times” or if you prefer “it’s better to see a thing once than to read about it a thousand times”


  2. Hi there!
    My name is Alejandro Medina and im writing to ask some electronic support from you,
    as i read in your blog, you have some interest in
    pets and their owners leaving them on the streets,
    waiting for them. well, we have some interest in
    owners leaving the animals in the streets forever.

    could be possible to link into your blog, a small video that we made for “irresponsible”
    owners of pets???

    We made it originally in russian, as a campaign for a rescue center in Kazakhstan, but as we believe the message is universal, we decide it to
    create one version in english and spread it around.

    Check it here
    English version

    Russian version

    thx for your support and comments are welcome.

  3. Hello Alejandro!

    It’s really great videos. But I think they are a bit cruel. Isn’t it?

    So I don’t place them on the home page of my blog, sorry. But I’ll make links to them in the all my “pet posts” (in Russian version too). Is it OK? If so, please give me a slogan you like.

  4. Hi (Webmaster name),

    I spend a fair amount of time reading blogs to get an idea for what people are passionate about. Life is too short as the saying goes… So I just wanted to tell you that you’re doing a great job!

    About what I do, I work for Viking River Cruises, which offers European river cruises among other vacation destinations. Since the material on your site compliments what we do, let me know if you would be open to working out a strategic partnership with us.

    If you need some help with writing, ideas, or anything else feel free to shoot me an email. Our staff at VRC will do our best to accommodate our partners.

    Best regards,

  7. Hi,

    I am contacting you from a leading online marketing company in London.

    I am looking for excellent quality websites such as yours to place adverts on, is this something you may be interested in?

    The placement of our adverts are contextually matched to the content on your webpage and therefore are relevant.

    We feel the positioning of your website will have excellent benefits for both parties involved.

    Please contact me if you are keen to discuss any partnerships with us or ask any questions and I will be happy to help.

    Kind Regards

  8. Regarding the text at the top right of the site (in an excellent theme, by the way) a common idiom in English is “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

    I’m sorry I can’t offer any translation.
