An Abandoned Horror

strange abandoned place in Russia 1

Well, I have seen a lot of photos of abandoned places in Russia, but this one is something special. It looks like some unknown lifeforms have invaded the area after people abandoned it, or did they abandon because of the invasion has started?

    What was this? It appears that it had something to do with sealife.

  2. Vodka Clone says:

    Babushka go suck your mother’s cock!

  3. talking beaver says:

    impressive!

    I just wonder if that was done in Soviet years or it was done by some maybe group of artists after the place was already abandoned.

    in the first case it just will reinforce my belief that Russia inherently is suffering from bad taste! In the latter case the opposite – this is just cool. great idea. well done!

    • Aiwan says:

      These thigs are surely from our soviet past. socialistic realism or something like that that style is called. Many resorts (most of) suffered from bad taste of arists and architects of ussr.
      The one with octopus reminds me of Ctulhu….

      • talking beaver says:

        If that would have been socialist realism, the soviet period art would look much funnier than it actually does. Psychodelic. ;)

    • Boris Abramov says:

      Alright, now go back to you comment, read it really slowly, and tell me how you are contradicting yourself.

      • talking beaver says:

        Well, got curious and actually did go back and read it. Found no contradiction.

        Want to explain?

        • Boris Abramov says:

          “in the first case it just will reinforce my belief that Russia inherently is suffering from bad taste!” – this is generally a negative statement expressing your dislike for this kind of “art”. It is also a negative statement about russian people which implies – russians people have no taste.

          “In the latter case the opposite – this is just cool. great idea. well done!” – Here you are clearly stating that you, in fact, like this kind of “art” by reinforcing your statement with words like “Well done” and “this is just cool”

          • talking beaver says:

            I will not comment on your deductively inductive conclusions about my attitude to “russians people” and their tastes. We can talk about it some other time and I will let you impress me with brilliance of your mental abilities.

            As of this particular case, you are for some reason ignoring fact obvious to nearly anybody else, that context, and especially spatially-temporal coordinates of a phenomenon can radically alter its meaning.

            You can think of examples yourself or we can ask someone to do it for you.

            So yes, I would dislike it in the first case and I would like it in the second case, and there is no contradiction.

    • talking beaver says:

      I like abstract art. “Eccentric” and “wild”. What’s wrong with that?

      Don’t you like Salvador Dali?

      Though, in Soviet times a lot of “art” was made by “decorating artists” (hudozhniki oformitely), who often lacked any systematic art education. But that often produced stunning results. ;)

  4. PumaElBusta says:

    I would love to live a house like this ;] Right, maybe needs to be renewed

  5. Pros says:

    photoshop

  6. First says:

    And you’re not.

  7. Russophile says:

    The interior sculptures are nearly the exact same style of the ones found at a natural history museum that I visited a few years ago, so it is likely an aquarium or sea life museum.

  8. Visitor says:

    Does anyone know what city this place is close to?

  9. Mixa says:

    Come on it’s just a kindergarten in Chernobyl and all the toys mutated like that. Radiation you know…

  10. Kapycta says:

    Wow, that kinda freaked me out! It looks pretty scary…

  11. Kostya says:

    What a trip.

  13. Pacific N W says:

    I like the halibut

  14. D says:

    Another wasted piece of property. Sad

  15. Dungeonbrownies says:

    likely it was to become a people’s aquarium

  16. Alex says:

    It was an aquarium, which was closed down. Not abandoned, just moved. It’s in Zelenograd, near moscow.

  17. bobwhite says:

    Whatever this is it most certainly is not in “socialist realist” style. Socialist realism was about the life of the people and the party, not sea life.

  18. Texas1 says:

    This might be where Zafarad lives with his alien friends.

    • Zafarad says:

      Wrong,i am also an Alien man.i don`t want to live,where there already living another kind of Alien specie.this place is haunted by the souls of Stalin`s anti state elements.despite the my affiliation and love with Soviets,i would say that Soviets were not build long lasting buildings and monuments.they build buildings with cheap and low cost materials.one guy pointed that,due to not repair and lack of maintaining,these buildings are on the edge of collapse.but this argue is lay man excuse.after all the pyramids of Giza are still intact and looking very original.

  19. 70% of Russian Buildings are abandoned

    Nice fake!

  22. Chuck Martel says:

    Two thousand years from now, an archaeologist is going to explain in great detail how this beautiful structure was obviously a great temple to a now forgotten deity.

    Pionerski lagerei — summer camp for kids

  24. Sergei says:

    It seems like it was an oktyabryonok/pioneer summer campus. I was in one with very similar artworks.

  25. John from Florida USA says:

    That is REALLY cool!

  26. will says:

  32. just bob says:

    What is it made of? Hypertufa I imagine? Very nice. Must have looked really great when new and freshly painted.

  33. Adam says:

    don’t blame communism. What happened in Russia wasn’t communism.

  34. Missouri says:

    It’s a Russian school … elementary school.

  35. Vovic says:

    This place is old child summer camp.
    It’s near new Bobsled line in ‘Paramonovo’ – 50 km from Moscow.

  36. Domka says:

    well it really looks like a kiddengarden because in soviet union all kiddengardens were made like that.In Lithuania the kiddengardens had a animal,and all fairy things everywhere.it is really kiddengarden from 2 to 6 years of age.

  37. tascha says:

    i’ve seen this on another post, and it said it was a school or something. an orphanage? i’m not sure. It was something for children though, i think an orphanage.

  38. Lars says:

    I like everything about this place. Thanks for sharing the pictures. :)

  39. Javox says:

    this was, unless from what i read, a children camp that was abandoned during the 80s for no reason, perhaps the couldnt keep it open or was all radioactive like most of the area hehe who knows, but its pretty crippy, dont know what were thinking the guys who made this park, nice post byes

  40. Alexander says:

    When I was a little kid, studying at first class, we went to the puppet show (Kharkov). Even now I remember how I was scared of big toy snake in elevator :)) Many artists that works for children can’t understand, that they should making something REALLY FOR CHILDREN – not for themselves or another adults.

  45. VEPR39 says:

    Is it just me or is there a haunting kind of beauty in these pictures?

    This place can be a nice area for a movie.

  48. [email protected] says:

    Where is this i wanna go ?

  49. xaniel says:

    Why is it horror? I think it’s a pretty good imitation of sea life. It’s probably an old pioneer camp or health resort for kids, sea-themed.

  59. maninum says:

    strashno pipec)))

  60. LaRoseNoire says:

    I like it. Very lien but great at the same time. Some of the comments here I shake my head at. Especially by a certain poster who keeps telling us to f off and such. If this is in Chernobyl that explaisn why it’s abandoned. All that radiation back then. But as far as from teh soviet era. Seems not so communist in fashion. Since I believe the teaching was about being a soviet. Not about the individual. About the state itself. I would love to have that building. So much can be done with it.

  61. cindy says:

    Yeah!its nice to be there i like adventure i wanna be there for ghost hunt….its also a historical place i like it!

  62. Lai-Lai says:

    It will look sweet in 20 years, as long as the taggers don;t spray on it.

  63. Katherine says:

    WOW… that place is cool and SCARY. I would love to explore it… but I would have to be with a bunch of people IN THE DAYLIGHT to go in. Awesome!

  64. Lisa says:

    Wow! I think that is awesome! Much work went into building that. I would love to buy that and restore it, then live in it!

  65. maggie says:

    woah i love it! i’d totally live there.

    I’m surprised hentai makers haven’t swarmed all over this place.

    Do they have wireless there?

  69. A Person says:

    Oh man, how creepy would this be if it was late at night & you walked into this place?
    Buut still, pretty cool, except for the fact that Hentai ruins this :P
