On the south of Russkiy island of the Russian Far East there is an island called Shkota. It used to be populated by militarymen but today it’s fully abandoned. Only ruins of military barracks and a coastal battery remind of people who used to live here.
Here are remains of concrete vats for salting fish.
Nearby, in the forest, are the town of gunners of 904-th battery, remains of barracks.
The structures are already overgrown with trees.
Then we enter Voroshilov battery.
And soon we go further to the lighthouse.
It does not function anymore.
One more old barrack in the forest.
And it’s that very 904th battery.
A through grotto is here.
Here is how one can leave the island.
