Unfortunately many wonderful abandoned places do not have any respect or attention. But maybe it makes them even more enchanting. Podgoretsky castle is often called the "Ukrainian Versailles". It is unique because of its architecture - Renaissance style and heavy bastilles. The complex of the castle consists of a three-storey castle
itself, Italian park, inn and entrance gates. It used to be one of the best palace complexes in Europe. Probably the history of the castle dates back to the twelfth century when not far from Podgortsy village was an ancient settlement with a fortification nearby. Some pictures of the place are inside the post.
In the Galichesky district of the Kostroma region of Russia there is an unusual structure - the TV tower 350 meters high. It's unique not because of its height but also because it does not function at all. This tower is the highest abandoned object on the territory of Russia. It's even higher than the Eiffel Tower. The TV tower has been abandoned for
more than ten years but next year everything should change. The structure was built in the 90s. It has six guylines, a boiler, a substation, a room for personnel. Unfortunately it was broken too fast, a couple of years ago even the cable and signalling lights were disassembled and stolen. Let's climb the tower right now!
The project called "Lost Chukotka" is an attempt to preserve the history of Chukotka of the twentieth century. This land used to have its settlements, its own culture, industry, military power, it was the place where many people tried to survive. Today these places are history. Besides there are no many people left
who can tell about this land, the land which is grown with tundra today. One photographer, who lives in Anadyr, Chukotka, has presented some photos of the land and called the project "Lost Chukotka". He was striving to visit as many Chukotian places as possible and show them to the world.
