There is a secret town in Kamchatka. One can get here only by sea or a helicopter…

Yet another amazing photo-essay at English Russia, this time depicting the abandoned "submariners’ town" of Bechyovinka:



Pure post-civilisation artporn.

  1. I love the stuff you bring to us…

  2. I’ve loved rusting old junk ever since I grew up on a farm littered with rusting old junk – even one or two bits from WWII. That’s my Utopia right there in those two photos. I don’t know why these places become orders of magnitude more interesting once they’re abandoned, and a submariner’s town no less, complete with old A-bomb instructions – wonderful.

  3. If you zoom in on the full-rez version of that second image, you can see the corroded bones of Captain Hимo.
