Crazy Russian Climbers Snap Breathtaking Shots from European Landmarks

Two of the Russian photographers who illegally scaled the Great Pyramid of Giza back in March (scroll down for the photos) have taken their what-the-hell-do-they-think-they're-doing act on the road—to Europe!

That's Vadim Mahora above, who, with Vitali Raskalovym, has spent the last few months traveling to some of Europe's highest places—like the cathedral at Cologne (once the highest structure in Europe), which Raskalovym says was the most interesting structure of their trip.

Mahora and Raskalovym's trip was sponsored by mobile operator Tele2 (apparently they were supposed to be checking mobile signals from their perches). Also on the itinerary: The Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.


Benidorm in southern Spain, where, failing to arrive in time to secure a hotel room, they slept on the hotel roof:



And, of course, no Eurotrip is complete without Paris:

You can see even more, and even more nauseating, photos at Mahora and Raskalovym's LiveJournals. Below, our original post about their exploits in Egypt.

The Unbelievable Photos Taken by the Crazy Russians Who Illegally Climbed Egypt's Great Pyramid

Last week in Egypt, a group of Russian photographers apparently climbed the Great Pyramid of Giza—hiding from guards for four hours after closing time before beginning the ascent. Climbing the pyramid, one of the photographers claims, carries a punishment of one to three years. But it was worth it. "I was speechless," one wrote. "I felt a chilling delight, absolute happiness." Here are some of their photos:

Since they were visible to guards, the photographs took most of their pictures from a prone position:
