Abkhazian town Tkvarchal is pretty much similar to some decorations of “Silent Hill” horror movie. It’s a mysterious mining town under which coal has already been burning for many years. The town is famous for paranormal phenomena taking place there.
The town was built near coal pits and the main function of the local railway was coal transportation. Here they also had a regional power station that provided the most part of the regional consumers with electricity. Of course it was powered with local coal.
