Abandoned Mine Photos Tell A Story Of Their Own (50 Photos and Video)
"A live-journal blogger Mr. Mishainik has been on a trip and he has explored an abandoned Ural mountain mine. You see, during the second world war most of Russian mining was moved to Ural due to safety. Due to war machine production resources were in high demand by the army so the mining volumes escalated tremendously. This is a visit to one mine, where ww2 Russian workers were built and mining ore for the needs of the Soviet army. Even though production stopped decades ago, the cars are still loaded with ore. Spooky!" Slavorum.org reports
These amazing photos tell a story of their own about what might have happened there:

Some of them are recultivated and disappear from the earth, but some still remain accessible to the public. Each mine has its own unique history and inherent beauty.
