If you literally have nothing better to do than watch the world go by - these may be for you.

Russians like to document everything on video, from morning coffee to a routine trip to the office. And when people aren’t recording stuff on their smartphones and sharing it with the world, countless CCTV cameras in Russia are forever monitoring life across the country...often very boring life.

This cam shows the entrance to a restaurant, which is in the form of giant barrel in the southern city of Nalchik (1,000 miles south of Moscow).

The camera shows the end of the line in the northern city of Vorkuta (1,500 miles north of Moscow).
