Walk in an abandoned sanatorium "Forest"
• Walk in an abandoned sanatorium "Forest"
In Minsk region (near Ivenets) is an interesting place - an abandoned sanatorium "Forest". According to that announced on the internet, the sanatorium was closed in 1986 due to the Chernobyl accident. In fact, everything turned out to be more complicated.
The territory of the resort looks like.
The building - a typical project for the seventies - angular shape, minimalism, the almost complete lack of decor.
Tower (inside of which was a water plant) decorates here is a weathervane. "Stork on the roof, Peace on Earth", as sung in the same old song.
street lighting lantern. In the seventies such lights placed literally anywhere.
Go around. One can see that the building is in a rather poor condition. On the walls - graffiti typical "post-nuclear" style.
Bright moss reminded of Pripyat. I caught myself on the fact that I try not to step on it (the habit of Pripyat, where the moss is radioactive).
Some lateral extension. Perhaps there was a dining room.
The building at the rear.
One of the external doors - emergency exit (the key at the nurse on duty).
next to it - the entrance to the shelter. There could not be there, germodver not open without special tools.
Let's try to get inside the building. From the main entrance you can not go - he is under alarm, fitted with a banner and a motion sensor. Try to look for the side portals.
Located here is a flight of stairs, sprinkled with a thick layer of broken bricks and piled high with chopped branches prickly wild rose (improvised "barbed wire" from intruders). Ok, here we go.
Carefully climb the dilapidated stairs and get into the second-floor hallway.
One of the rooms. That there has been - it is difficult to say. Wieden some table and the remains of some of the electrical box on the wall. The battery under the window cut and exported.
ventilation grille. Remember these?
Broken tiles in the corner. Based on Communications, once there was a sink with hot and cold water.
Flight of stairs in the middle of the building. Types residues typical Soviet decor (some wavy tassels simulating curtains) and graffiti left by minors "stalkers" outside the building.
The room with the documents.
There were a lot of interesting things. For example, the schedule for the December 1989, is already in the post-Chernobyl period.
But the estimates and accounting reporting documents for the year 1989.
And what a union statement in the same period.
Came across documents and for 1990 and for 1991-1992. It turns out that the sanatorium worked for at least 5 years after the Chernobyl accident. I wonder why it did not shut down immediately, and whether it is his final closing of the accident is due. There are different options. The first option (Soviet razdolbaystvo) - Radiation Safety Standards resort really need to be closed, but it is for some time worked for economic reasons, simply because he had no replacement. The second option (theft) - could not cover anything on the rules, but in the end someone has become profitable to "close" the resort to, for example, to write off some or other waste on the "radiation". The pier, the company closed, and ends in the water.
And finally, the third option - a sanatorium was just uneconomical. It is far enough from the big cities, and the presence of a number (even if not on site) radioactive spot finally "damped reputation of" place. Who would like to rest near here such signs:
However, I leave the investigation of causes of the closure of other expeditions. Personally, I am more interested home side the life of enterprise.
Typical living room in the resort looks like. To the left of the entrance - something like a wall cabinet, on the right - a bathroom with a small tub, sink and toilet. Almost all the plumbing, except baths, already unlocked.
The remains of chandeliers.
sockets and switches.
Another, very interesting modifications (with icons), never before so did not see.
Particulars of rooms - wall "trafaretki" with different subjects, often animalistic themes. For example, hedgehogs.
Or a teddy bear.
Or our Belarusian Buslik.
And near one electrical box is such a sheltered bird.
Let us go further.
In some of the rooms from the damp flooring very much "led".
Some of the room and quite a mess. Go there do not want to. Somehow worse preserved rooms in the right wing of the building.
Another escape route.
The side staircase right wing.
Let's go back. Again, the central staircase of the building.
If you go down to the first floor, you can see the hall opposite the entrance. It was there an alarm system.
On the railing near the place found an interesting remark. I wonder if it is connected somehow to the presence of the alarm? What is the "NC" I do not know.
Carefully go down.
and go to the right. There were once treatment rooms.
Here are preserved some huge bath.
Rather, one bath preserved. The rest remained here are the catwalks.
And here was once a power shower.
On the territory there were some interesting artifacts. For example, is such a beverage bottle, "greetings from the nineties."
Red coffee pots. Perhaps, once this was in every room, was listed in the inventory list of ambient conditions - "the coffee pot in red polka dot one piece."
"Sovetskaya Belorussia". Mandates and orders.
Still Life. Chemist glassware and vials of vitamin B12.
The living room on the second floor.
