9 Silent Places Left To Die

Silent Places Left To Die

Posted on January 27, 2011 by team

Some other abandoned places that will virtually never return to their life.

Church in Kushmangorg village. After the penal colony has been built here in the 40s, the village was destroyed. The only thing remained is its church.

This place was perfect for lumbering. And 40 years later the village was rebuilt but a little further from its former place. The new residents were supposed to have come here but they didn’t. Even nowadays its population is about 200 people. They are the workers of the colony, their relatives and prisoners that are now free.

Who knows, maybe this road will also be deserted in some dozen years…

A drowned ship in Abkhazia.

A huge ship lying on its side, half drowned… Very impressive view.

English words. This ship could have been American…

It transported diesel.

To walk on this desk is thrilling.

It turned out this ship was Turkish. Last year it ran aground. All the crew was saved.

What to do with this ship? Nobody knows. Turks don’t need it anymore.

And these tourists are definitely not concerned about the ship’s destiny.

    Who is the sexy lady standing in the water with her arms raised? Is she a Femen? Is she about to take off her top and protest? Where is her sign?!

    Those trains don’t even look that old…

    Yes, the ship captain was probably a wily Turk. He probably waded ashore and had his way with a group of gentle young Georgian girls. Let’s hope he died on the end of a boyonet wielded by a soldier from the Russin occupation forces. But, he is probably operating a rug and hashish shop in Sokhumi.

    1,626-dwt Tansanian-flagged tanker M/V MAG 1 (IMO 7036735) drifted aground at Sokhumi, Georgia, on Dec. 14-2009 at 0600LT. The machine room flooded and the stern became submerged.
