    Strange but still interesting.

    Is this from the soviet era?

    Truly like a bad acid trip. This kind of thing would give a child nightmares. It gives ME nightmares. Those clowns… ugh.

    I would imagine their laws concering personal injury law suits are a bit different than in America, lol.

    When I was on vacation in Mexico a couple years ago I saw holes in the middle of sidewalks that would have caused instant lawsuits here in the US.

    Ah….memories :-)

  5. Chipo says:

    Lawsuits are so 20th century.

  6. Aleksander Sergiev says:

    That is a bit strange.

    scariest stuff, like this ca be found in Medvez’egorsk, thats in karelia. The town used to be a tine growing industrial see port and then everything just stopped working and it started to die out. There are a lot of parks and abandoned playgrounds standing in what looks like forest: the best one is a huge mechanical rocket that used to go up & down; slava rossii;

    Most children would be fascinated by such a place. They know it’s make-believe and it’s fun.

    Why do chainsaw sculptures have this creepy gothic feeling to them?

    What else could you build if you only had a welder, some steel tubing and a few logs and chisels?

    There weren’t any premade playgrounds made by designers and factories, they all are one-off, put together by some local drunken construction workers.

    • John from Kansas says:

      Yes steel and wood, easy to come by in Russia. These objects are imaginative and unique. This place may be a one-off, but children will always have fun there. Do you think they care that these things were not developed by designers and built in factories?

  13. Amerikan says:

    Yes, they do care. The carousels and swing sets in the USSR were bone breaking forehead cracking solid steel contraptions.

  14. Anders says:

    I guess the bear is a version of Misha, the mascot of the Moskva Olympic Games 1980:

    The guy with green pants must be “Karlsson on the roof”, one of Astrid Lindgrens characters (extremely popular in Soviet Russia).

  17. Like to watch Stargate Atlantis episodes and also Lost. I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.

  18. Angel Baker says:

    Spongebob is really funny and hilarious. somebody says that spongebob is gay, is that even true?”*-

  19. Hemlock says:

    The place is NOT gothic, it’s just old and dilapidated. Kids shouldn’t even be allowed to play there, they might get tetanus.

  20. This is a really good post, I found your webpage searching yahoo for a related subject and arrived to this. I couldnt get to much additional material on this article, so it was pleasant to find this one. I will certainly end up being back again to check out some other articles that you have another time.
