7 Another Forgotten Russian Village

Another Forgotten Russian Village

Posted on April 16, 2015 by team


Here is another abandoned and forgotten Russian village, Mityukovo which is surrounded by other villages with no people.  A wide street, two dozen wooden houses, roaring wind and ringing silence.   Nothing else remains of the life that was once here.

Blogger deni-spiri has visited the village and entered some of the empty houses.

    Still find it pretty incredible how whole towns of people just up and disappear like that. If you had transport, you could very well end up squatting in your off grid place like this, some of those places don’t need much work to get them back into good condition.

    I also have to wonder how these whole town of people seem to disappear. They must have left fairly quick as it seems they leave quite a bit behind as well.

      This is northern Kostroma region. It can’t compete with plentiful southern lands. And Russian farmers don’t receive any subsidy. So there is no money, people left this place.

    how long you dwell in Russia, sir? those roads stop Napoleon and Hitler, don’t mention Genghis khan.

    well, no electricity, nearby shops, cellular connection or medical help. if it’s your cup of tea – welcome.

    This village sits in the middle of nowhere. When it was populated, the population had to be small, so everybody knew each other, but nevertheless many houses have high fences around them. Fences were needed to prevent theft.
    So we must conclude that people in this village did not trust each other and were stealing from each other

      You’re joking, right (judging from the rest of your posts, you are, but w/e)? Fences in places like this aren’t needed to prevent theft. They’re needed to stop wild animals trampling all over your junk.
