Abandoned Electric Vehicles Factory in Kiev

Abandoned Electric Vehicles Factory in Kiev

Most of our abandoned posts come from Russia and not many from other Soviet republics, even Ukraine, one of the largest ones, doesn’t often send us pictures of abandoned stuff. This time a Moscow urban explorer, Sam Namos, while he was traveling to Ukraine has visited a local abandoned factory and taken these photos. The place itself is an abandoned factory which produced electric vehicles. Not the modern ones like Teslas, etc, but rather electric trams and trolley buses. Some of them still stand in the warehouses of this place. Let’s take a look!

During the Soviet epoch this plant made vehicles  – trams and trolleys for the whole Soviet Union. Now the most part of it stays abandoned and just a little space is being rented out for something else.

It was founded in 1904. Besides the production they were repairing existing cars and trains.

To get into the roof they first had to go deep underground into the building cellars to find a secret way to the roof.
