Abandoned Slaughterhouse and Meat Packing Plant in Belarus

Deep in the heart of Belarus lies an enormous abandoned slaughterhouse where thousands of cattle were slaughtered, butchered, and packaged for distribution.

From the train station, I walked about three hours on the road. I didn’t know that most of the way I can travel by bus. The Plant is an unfinished meat processing plant, similar to the Baranovichi plant. Cattails grow in the wash pit and frogs croak.

The plant area is absolutely uninhabited and is gradually overgrown with grass. The refrigerator workshop resembles a sarcophagus.

The plant has rails. A couple of loading tracks indicate the scale of the planned production.


Boilers for burning animals should have stood here. Workers managed to install plastic tanks – a multi-stage scrubber for air purification after cremation.


After shipment the cattle directly arrived to that unloading area.

Then – the pre-slaughter area. It is divided into sections, bridges are provided for the personnel. The grooves in the floor, covered with concrete grates, are designed to drain water and feces.

Special carts driven by winches were to be driven along the grooves. Workers managed to mount all this.

The walls connected with galvanized refrigerating batteries and pipes, through which ammonia was supposed to circulate.
Above – rails for the animal bodies.


Under the refrigerator area, there is a factory shelter. An indispensable attribute of construction sites during the Cold War.
