An Abandoned Warship Near Moscow

Right near Moscow, there is a real warship the has been standing abandoned for more than ten years, but still with some chance of being reactivated some day. So the blogger Alexander and his friends decided to climb onto this ship and take photos from inside and outside.

Have you ever been on an abandoned Russian navy ship? If no, then here is your chance:

To get there they have to sneak inside as it is still under surveillance. Anyway, they succeeded and here they are inside.An Abandoned Warship Near Moscow

Alexander says that initially there were plans to turn this ship into a museum but the funds that were set aside for this were stolen and the museum never happened.

  1. A place I have always dreamt to go, but never yet. Not “near Moscow” but “inside Moscow”. And too far from any metro line to be easily reachable by a tourist (yuzhnoe tushino raion if I am not wrong)…

    • Checked in Wikipedia : most of them have been decommissioned, although not too old. So, either lack of money, or they became maybe useless because of other technologies ?

  2. I love boats/ships… If I had the money, I would buy a houseboat and live there part of the year, floating on the water, that would be so nice.

    If I lived in Moscow, I think maybe I’d just live on that thing whenever I wanted something a little different. There is nothing like this in the USA (that I know of)
