Abandoned Soviet Youth Camp
Picnic in the forest is always cool, especially in this time of year.
It is also pretty cool, when it is in abandoned camp for children of labourers.
It seems this place was kept intact for almost 20 years. Images of Lenin, propagandist graffiti's are still vivid.
This place used to be a "pioneer camp" for children of the Metro builders. Approximately 1985 map of the future development of Kyiv metro. Still too optimistic even for today...
Every morning, children were queuing up to wash their faces and brush their teeth. Seems pretty, and nostalgic, but ugly and disgusting, as I try to recall it, especially the stench from the "toilets".
