A Soviet sports complex frozen in time

Explore the intriguing story of a sports complex frozen in time, constructed over a decade from 1975 to 1986 with the ambition of becoming the largest sports structure in the region.

This sports complex was built over approximately a decade, from 1975 to 1986, with the vision of becoming the largest sports structure in the region. It consists of three blocks, each equipped with separate halls for various sports. The complex boasts two swimming pools – one large and one small – along with an expansive backyard pool designed for kayaking.

However, the swimming pool constructed in 1986 has never been used. The primary reasons for its abandonment were water shortages and the subsequent collapse of the Soviet Union.
