Russia – This old beauty was neglected and abandoned all the time in the dense forests of Kostroma region in north-western Russia. At first the estate was owned by century farmer-millionaire Martyan Sazonov, but during the Bolshevik revolution the Bolsheviks confiscated it from the owner. Before WW2 it was used as a Soviet post office and a village library but after the WW2 they all abandoned it and it become desolated. As time passed the house looked scarier while its surrounding was full of dense wild forest. In 1980’s the whole village was abandoned as most of the local villagers moved to St.Petersburg, meaning this building was completely forgotten that it even exists.
In 2005. some passengers accidentally saw it, shared their photos over the internet and one Russian man from Moscow saw them. He was struck by its beauty so he decided to save as much money as he can just to rebuild it in its original form. As you will see, his work as paid off and now it attracts a lot of local and foreign tourists. h/t: (takiedela)
