Reconstruction of the Danish freemen
The inhabitants of Christiania, a special district in Copenhagen, have to decide how to turn the former “state within a state” into a private Danish commune.

A study conducted at the end of last year by the sociological company Opinion Stockholm showed that 60% of Stockholm residents do not want to "manhattize" their city. Older people aged 66–75 years are the most persistent opponents of radical change (only 31% of the representatives of this category agree with the appearance of high-rise buildings in the city), young people aged 15–25 years show the greatest enthusiasm for the city’s height. The “age dividing line” is explained by the fact that young people need housing more than others ...

Logistics: closer to the center
It is well known that warehousing, transport and logistics are the most important economic components of any region, causing the pace of its development. The Voronezh region, located at the intersection of highways, is one of the most attractive, in terms of logistics, regions and has all the necessary prerequisites to become the logistics center of the Black Soil Region.

Theories and background From the 18th – 19th centuries until the beginning of the October Revolution, Voronezh was an important commercial and industrial center located at the crossroads of major trade routes.
