Exploring an abandoned chemical factory in Armenia

This abandoned Soviet-era factory in Armenia had a lot to offer! Two notable things we discovered during this urbex tour were a unique fresco and a 'Lenin, Engels, Marx' mosaic.

I wanted to get inside this abandoned factory in Armenia for a long time, and the time finally came! We had a vague information that there is a fresco in this factory and went to check it out. After wandering around for a while we finally spotted the fresco from outside and got inside the building!

Glory to the Komsomol!

My heart started to beat happily… the fresco was amazing! So far it is the only Soviet fresco that I found in Armenia with a Russian inscription on it: Слава комсомолу! Glory to the Komsomol!

We went on exploring further and got inside a room with lots of boxes called “Detekcni Trubice”! A quick google research said that: “Detekcni Trubice - UH - V detection tubes are intended for the determination of hydrocarbons and the lower explosive limit of solvent vapors in the air. The detection tube KT - 1 serves to determine the direction of air flow. Detection tubes are intended for single use.”

We moved forward… suddenly my friend called “Hurry up! Look what I found”.

With a smile on my face I am posing for a photo ...

I entered a large room and saw on the wall a big mosaic of Lenin, Engels  and Marx! It left a strong impression on me—a piece of history that may soon vanish…

Needless to say that we also saw countless warning posters on the walls … For more check out the gallery below...
