You ever watched a Youtuber called 'Bald & Bankrupt' ?

His journey across Russia was fucking amazing.

Yeah, I love him.
I plan on one day traveling all across Eastern Europe, Balkans, Baltic States

I'm very much in love with post-Soviet country aesthetic, coming from a post-Soviet country myself.

Do all the older generation miss the Soviet state? Seems that alot of those in B&B's videos seem to romaticise the old days where everyone was just happier and more stable.

Well, It's sort of complicated.
I can't speak for other countries. but back in the day of socialist Hungary for example, people did have more of a sense of stability, which was very comforting in a way.
Most of that sense was probably false, obviously the socialist government wanted to appear stable so they wouldn't cause unrest.

Compare it to Hungary now, where due to more freedom of the press and freedom of information, now more than ever people can see the many ways our government is very corrupt.
It's not to say things aren't better now, but they seem worse due to people actually being able to tell that things are worse.

Couple that with the fact that pensioners were living out their youth back in those days, they're obviously going to view their youth more favorably compared to their life now which is full of uncertainty and poor handling of their money by the corrupt government.
