Abandoned Russian Villages in 2015

Posted on October 8, 2015 by tim


In Russia there are multitudes of abandoned villages. Most of them have the monuments of a long gone era. One Russian blogger traveled to some of them recently and this post is what he brought back from the journey. We start with a wooden church. Despite it looks it's not that old.  It was completed in 1910. Then communists turned it into warehouse in 1940  - as they did with many churches that were not blown up.

He first went to Udmurtia, Russia. It has plenty of abandoned villages.

You can't find the traces of human beings in some. Maybe some people come back here in summer.  Maybe hunters stop here while on their journeys thru the Russian woods. Maybe shepherds from other villages. It's over 7 km to the next village from here so its not that far from civilization.
