    Thanks for posting all this info & pics. I’ve been obsessed with abandoned structures lately and it’s fascinating. It’s also sad, even though I’ll likely never be in a position to visit them. I would have thought that some of the oligarchs would have rescued them. I know I would (if I was an oligarch).

    Though the last pic looks like an operating church, I see a great retirement house or fishing lodge. ;) Is that a good river?
