72 Most Breathtaking Lost Places Posted on the Lost Beauties Facebook Page (new photos)

Our passion for architecture has deep roots. We pay attention to structures around us because they shape our experience and tell stories about culture. To truly understand the environment, we can explore cities by walking along the main streets and learn about history by admiring famous landmarks. However, for some of us, the view from below and from a safe distance is simply not enough.

So, today we pay attention to people who are thirsty for adventure and have chosen an unknown path. We’re talking about urban studies, often referred to as urbex, that attract artists and thrill-seekers who want to document the gradual process of architectural decay. They pass through buildings full of rubble and ruins, finding interest and inspiration in forgotten buildings and the stories they tell.

Let me introduce you “Abandoned Beauties” A Facebook page dedicated to sharing captivating images of deserted places and objects. Both past and present. We have put together a collection of breathtaking photographs that capture the essence of the supernatural and unexplored wilderness that is not normally seen by the public. So keep scrolling, like your favorites and let us know if they inspired you to go on a real adventure!

Pss! Once you’re done admiring the photos, be sure to check out part 1 of this feature right here.

Then the marble from the quarry was intended for the construction of St. Isaac’s Cathedral in St. Petersburg. Since then, the history of the plant, full of ups and downs, began. Having lost state orders, at different times the plant produced decorative crushed stone, lime and gravel. The owners quickly changed, for some time the Finns even rented it, and therefore marble from this quarry can be found in the lining of several Finnish buildings.⠀

In 1895, the first kilns for firing marble and lime were installed here. The stone was blown up and then crushed with sledgehammers into small pieces. Marble was lifted on winches with trolleys, and then manually pushed to the furnaces.⠀

In 1960, the plant began to specialize in the production of decorative crushed stone and lime. Crushed stone was used to finish buildings throughout the Soviet Union, and lime was used by collective farms to limy soils.⠀

With the onset of the 90s, the stoves went out forever, and in the early 2000s, on the site of the former quarry, which turned into a picturesque turquoise lake, the Mountain Park was created, which became one of the most visited tourist destinations in northwestern Russia. Near the park, the same stoves have been preserved, the territory of which is now being cleared and gradually landscaped, with plans to create a full-fledged tourist facility and attach it to the park.
