Abandoned hospital in Zheleznodorozhny: history, horrors

Abandoned and emergency buildings in most people cause very unpleasant feelings, a desire to pass deserted buildings with empty eye sockets of windows as soon as possible. But there are those in whom such buildings kindle a burning curiosity. Fans of strolling through such unusual places call these buildings the affectionate word "abandoned". Among the fans of "abandoned houses" are informal youth, roofers, stalkers, diggers. There are those who simply dream of having a photo shoot against the backdrop of ruined interiors, which are more like scenery for psychological thrillers and horror films.

For several years, the abandoned hospital in Zheleznodorozhny has been especially popular. It is about him that we propose to talk today.

KGB hospital

History of the hospital

15 hectares in the Olgino microdistrict of the city of Zheleznodorozhny were provided to the State Security Committee for unlimited use back in the early eightiesyears of the last century. The history of the “abandoned house” itself begins in 1981. Then large-scale construction work began on an area of ​​15 hectares. It was assumed that the Central Hospital of the 4th Directorate of the KGB would appear here. An advanced multifunctional hospital was supposed to be a whole complex of buildings interconnected in the form of a hexagon. It was planned that about three thousand people could be accommodated here at the same time.

The construction work was carried out by the military. It was they who equipped a bomb shelter under the hospital, the thickness of the walls of which was about a meter. They wired the electricity, delivered and installed plumbing. According to eyewitnesses (the abandoned hospital in Zheleznodorozhny even has its own page on social networks), it was already possible to live in this bomb shelter. It is worth noting that it was located throughout the territory under the hospital, there were exits to each building.

The end of an era and construction

The story of the abandoned hospital in Zheleznodorozhny ended before it began. Construction ceased along with the end of the Soviet era in September 1991. The construction teams were disbanded, the plumbing from the bunker was dismantled and sold, and the bunker itself was flooded with water, after which all the entrances were sealed. True, local residents say that another reason for stopping construction work could be the fact that a swampy place was chosen for the hospital. The construction site was simply abandoned, without even thinking of mothballing it so that years latercontinue.

The popularity of "abandoned"

Visitors of this "abandoned place" noted its grandiose appearance, it was often possible to hear that the KGB scope was felt here. For a long time, assessing the state of long-term construction was quite problematic. The thing is that different sections of the unfinished hospital of the KGB of the USSR were in a different state. For example, the left wing, where only the frame was built, was completely unsuitable for visits. But the buildings in the right wing and the central part have been preserved in a relatively good condition for many years. Even though the load-bearing structures were rusted, they were practically not damaged. The guards looked after the “abandoned place”, however, the employees of the private security company were peaceful towards uninvited guests, such as cynologists, paintball players and graffiti artists, and therefore there were no problems visiting the hospital.

Abandoned KGB hospital in Zheleznodorozhny: horrors and mysticism

Flooded sewers, numerous passages and tunnels - the combination of all this makes the abandoned hospital a mysterious and even mystical place. It is not surprising that the unfinished building is overgrown with a huge number of legends and scary stories. Rumor has it that Satanists used to gather here, one of the visitors to the facility noticed a light that looked like welding in one of the parts of the hospital. Someone even said that man-eating dogs guard the building. However, all this is just a fantasy.

Howevera truly horrifying incident did occur here: in 2015, a schoolboy from the city of Zheleznodorozhny committed suicide after receiving his USE results. The parents were not at home at the time. The 16-year-old boy left a note for them, in which he indicated the place where they would find him. The abandoned hospital in Zheleznodorozhny became the place for suicide. Here the student went up to the third floor and jumped down. His parents found his body late in the evening.


Another mystery is connected with the presence of the so-called metro-2 under the "abandoned". Of course, there can be no official information about secret underground structures under the capital. Therefore, all assumptions about the presence and scale of the secret metro, also called the D6 system, are just attempts to summarize information obtained from sources that seem at least a little reliable. It is generally accepted that the construction of the D6 system took place in the 50-60s of the last century, and it was completed in the mid-eighties.

Metro-2 was built to provide transport links between the objects of the Ministry of Defense, which are located in the center of Moscow, with underground cities and command posts. Another version is the evacuation of the first persons of the state. It is generally accepted that the movement in metro-2 is single-track, because building two tracks is simply pointless, because in the event of an emergency evacuation, the flow of passengers will be directed only in one direction.

Visitors of the abandoned hospital in Zheleznodorozhny say: a possible exit to one of the stationsmetro-2 is located under this object. As evidence, they cite the fact that the hospital is constantly guarded, that it was intended for KGB officers (and it was this service that was engaged in breeding underground lines). And the fact that no one was able to find the entrance to metro-2, visitors to the hospital explain that it was concreted and filled with water. But the diggers did not lose hope for a long time: they continued to explore the underground floors and surroundings.

Demolition of structure

In the fall of 2017, the media reported that the abandoned hospital in Zheleznodorozhny was being demolished. It is worth noting that the city administration has repeatedly appealed to the leadership of the Federal Security Service, which was in charge of this building. The management of Zheleznodorozhny asked to transfer the object to the balance of the municipality, but for several years no such decision was made. The development of the abandoned territory became possible only after the regional government joined the solution of this issue. Demolition work on the building began in the fall of 2017. The demolition is expected to be completed in the summer of 2018.

What's next?

The further fate of this territory deserves special attention. Initially, it was planned that a medical center of all-Russian significance would be built on this site. It was planned that he would specialize in endocrinology, clinical and laboratory diagnostics, ophthalmology and nephrology. The possibility of buildingnext to the center of residential buildings for its workers. However, in November last year, Sergei Yurov (the head of Balashikha), during a live broadcast on the Balashikha 360° TV channel, announced that a school would appear on the site of an abandoned hospital, which could be attended by 1,100 children.
