Re: Hidden Deep in a Russian Forest.

That is an amazing find. It looks like someone moved in as well (sheets on the beds).

I wonder if they own it outright or are squatting.

So much was left behind with the fall of the Soviet Union. Towns, houses, missile silos etc..

Re: Hidden Deep in a Russian Forest.

After much thought I have come to the conclusion that this must have been a cabin/cottage (dacha in russian) for one of Russia's many billionaires.

You are Wrong, think some more next time before you post, mostly about how to use the Internet

http://englishrussia.com/2008/03/10/...en-miracles/3/

Guys (1) these houses are not medieval – one was built in 1897 another one in 1903 (2) the one with furniture is not abandoned – it belongs to a friend, an artist who bought it from village council back in 1972 and saved it from destruction like the other one, since the village became abandoned. (3) The one which is ruined I am restoring with a help of a few friends. The story of the houses is quite interesting. They were built by two friends, local peasants who left their villages for St petersburg, rose from construction workers to propritors of large construction businesses (in fact one of them had worked as contractor during renovation of Winter Palace in St Pete in 1890s). Both of these peasants quit St Pete to retire in their home villages and built these estates there. Both houses were built without an architect, by these peasants themselves, but one used plans and drawings of fashionable Russian architect who was one of the creators of this”gingerbread” Russian art-noveau style of the 1870s-80s-90s. The houses stand 18km apart from each other in now abandoned villages. We plan to open guesthouse/museum/hunting lodge in the one we are renovating. The other one as I mentioned is private summer house of the artist from Moscow.
More info can be found at http://kopanga.livejournal.com and http://ostashevo.com (sorry all in Russian, but google translate is becoming better everyday, isn’t it?)
