The habit of drinking was the predilection of the people during the reign of the Soviet Union.
After years, ocean waves have turned glass bottles into beautiful colorful rocks. Previously, Russian authorities closed Ussuri Bay because of the danger of sharp broken glass. But now the beach has been reopened after the waves make the glass shards more smooth.
