Between Earth and Sky
The problem of abandoned villages exists in Russia for a long time. There are a lot of them specifically in Tverskaya Oblast’. There were endless forests and swamps. Two centuries ago, people came and began cultivate the land. They built houses and erected bridges, fell in love, got married and had children. And then something happened and there left less and less of dwellers.
These houses cannot be ranked among architectural monuments. They are doomed to slow destruction. Now they seem to be stuck between life and death. But soon a forest will grow again in this place and nothing will remind that people once lived here. Such villages in Russia are called “deathlike” rather then “abandoned”. And the amount of them increases very quickly.
