These were the only images that Bassan investors had available when they made the decision to go into the former Soviet Union, namely Lithuania.

What they found was quite different:

Navarre

In this entry

http://community.simtropolis.com/journal/5165/entry-24970-welcome/

you saw my island of Navarre. I tried to recreate and expand it in Skylines and am pretty proud of the result:

The Banhammer Bank complex. Bassa, like most other Caribbean islands, is no stranger to unethical banking practices and Banhammer had the good fortune to pick up these colonial-era structures (former police station and gaol) at a discount.
