Extreme tourism is becoming an increasingly popular hobby. One of its branches is the inspection of abandoned buildings and other types of objects that have ceased to function. What are the abandoned places near Moscow worth visiting and how to prepare for such a trip?
Going to the road
Any journey begins with a route. Decide how you will move. It is not necessary to have a personal car in order to visit interesting objects in the immediate vicinity of the capital. It is quite easy to get to many places that are now abandoned by mankind, on public transport. Minor distances can be completely overcome on a bicycle. Please note that during the walk there may be communication problems, therefore, in addition to the navigator, take with you a paper map of the area or write landmarks in a separate notebook. For a trip to the abandoned places it is necessary to choose special clothes. Protect your legs - it's better to put on boots like a military and put on tight pants, it's advisable to take a light jacket with you. Do not forget to also put a lantern, matches, food and water in the bag, a small first-aid kit.
How to behave on the site?
Remember that many of the abandoned places near Moscow, despite its dilapidated and abandoned appearance, are public or private property, and sometimes even protected. With many watchmen you can agree, and they are for "thank you" or symbolic reward not only you will not be expelled, but also the tour will be conducted. If the security is incorruptible and requires leaving the territory, it is better not to argue, but to apologize for the invasion and retire. And yet the watchman is not the most terrible, many abandoned objects are chosen by people without a specific place of residence, as well as by stray and wild animals. In abandoned buildings you need to listen carefully to extraneous sounds, do not forget to look around and under your feet. Deteriorating buildings are dangerous in and of themselves - at any time they may collapse overlaps or walls. If the building seems unreliable to you, it is better to confine yourself to inspecting the facade.
Select an object
One of the most interesting places in the Moscow region is the film set left in 2010. What is noteworthy, the object is protected, but you can get here completely freely any day from ten in the morning until half past eight in the evening. There is a city-decoration in Solnechnogorsk district, near the village Serednikovo. Here the shooting of the film "Notes of the Forwarder of the Secret Chancery" took place. Filming space is recreated by the medieval Vyborg, on its territory there is a ship, a fortress wall and many interesting buildings, including a castle and a church. Do not forget to take a camera with you on this trip (shooting is free). If many of the abandoned places near Moscow produce a depressing impression and evoke philosophical reflections, then this object, when contemplated, takes you to a completely different world and time. After a walk around Vyborg, you can visit the Lermontov Museum in the village of Serednikovo.
The manor house in Grebnevo
If you want to see just two abandoned churches, a gorgeous house of landlords and many buildings of economic purpose, you should go to the village Grebnevo, Schelkovo district. The manor complex was built in the 16th century and was replaced by many owners, each of which changed the appearance of the palace and the adjacent territory slightly for personal tastes. Later at different times here were located: a hospital, a factory and a secondary specialized educational institution. The complex is recognized as an architectural monument, but today no reconstruction works are performed for it, and the entrance to the territory remains free. Like many other abandoned places in Moscow and Moscow suburbs of this type, the estate is surrounded by a large park, which today is heavily overgrown and in a deplorable state.
