Abandoned 19th-Century Factory In Saint Petersburg

Half of this factory built in the 19th century is abandoned. At first it produced pipes, exploders and measuring devices thus greatly contributing to the country’s victory in World War II. Later it switched to producing high-precision instruments used in the field of science and war industry. During the 90s, the number of orders reduced and the factory had to wait to be paid for years which caused closures of some of its departments.

  1. many abandoned building in Russia,where there are still full of equipments and furnished, but nobody steal or try to sell those steel equipments..amazing Russia, i really respect them.I wonder if this happened to other countries,we can find all the “missing in action” things in the building..hahaha

  2. “A decision room.”: A decision was made to lay-off vast numbers of workers due to “sagging profits”; therefore the inept, corrupt managers retired with full compensation or moved on to ineptly manage another company while the workers were left to fend for themselves in an amoral, heartless system that doesn’t need people; it only needs arms and eyes (and only if those arms and eyes make obscene amounts of money for inept, corrupt managers). And that’s the way it is…
