A few minutes of car ride further we made it to an abandoned summer camp called „Fairy tale “.
Walking through the pretty simple entrance which was made of an archway with a bell in its stone structure, we could spread and explore the area on our own to a certain point.
But before we started the guide asked us all to be quiet. It was dead silence. Not even a bird was audible even though there were some. The creepy feeling left me with goose bombs. It was not comparable with the silence you experience while being in the hills or in another normal forest. It was just weird.
To get an overview I was just walking around with the other German girl and found holes in the ground all around the whole area. Later, the guide explained that, where the holes were visible, the power supply cables were ripped out of the ground after the accident, and were used to make money by selling the copper.
Finally, we made it inside one of the accommodations for the children. Wall painting was falling from the wall. Sadly, this house has become a victim of vandalism.
After leaving this building and going further I found something on the horizon which looked like a church to me.
When hiking there, the guide explained that those were just places for children to discuss things. Maybe how to make the Soviet Union collapse... who knows?
