Abandoned Pioneer Camps of the USSR
In the USSR, there were about 40 thousand. Interesting sculptures, mosaics and unusual buildings have been preserved in the camps, although now all this is slowly being destroyed.
In the early 90s, after the abolition of pioneering activities and the collapse of the USSR, it seemed that everyone fled from these camps, leaving them intact inside.
In the pioneer camps, they not only supported the health of children, but also raised a patriotic spirit.
Today these are mainly places of pilgrimage for lovers of abandoned places. And, unfortunately, a very small part of the former pioneer greatness has survived to our time.
Camp “Kudryavtsevo” is located on the territory of the former estate of Samsonov of the 19th century, as evidenced by the main wooden house and church.
