40+ Photos of an abandoned cars nearby deserted Russian dachas in Khabarovsk area. Many summer residents abandoned their dachas and many cars were left there. Almost every car had a rotten bottom, some parts were torn off, and in general, cars were badly dented.
The photos were taken by the DV Destroy Exploration Group. They are photographers and explorers based in Russia. The DV Destroy Group has been documenting urban decay, industrial abandonments, and rural decomposition since 2010.
Since the first half of the twentieth century, the gradual development of these lands by the townspeople began, and the first buildings appeared on some of them even before the revolution. In Soviet times, many families received the coveted 6 acres near Khabarovsk for their dachas.
A dacha is a seasonal or year-round second home, often located in the exurbs of Russian-speaking and other post-Soviet countries. The 1980s saw the peak of the dacha boom, with nearly all affluent families — over a third of families in urban areas — having a dacha of their own.
As for today — many summer residents abandoned their dachas, which not only suffer from periodic flooding, but also risk being burned out in annual seasonal fires arising from uncontrolled fires, or being raided by marauders.
Such is the difficult fate of these summer dachas near Khabarovsk. The old cars urban explorers met were obviously brought by summer residents to the dachas for summer driving on country roads instead of recycling. And cars were brought to the hills and hillocks precisely so that the cars did not finally turn into a heap of scrap metal after the next flood.
Nevertheless, many cars were in terrible condition. Almost every car had a rotten bottom, some parts were torn off, and in general, cars were badly dented.
