STRANGEST Places in Russia

    HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat !
    11.Yamal Craters
    During a routine trip, helicopter pilots spotted a mysterious hole, deep in the Siberian Permafrost. Before it was news, a second hole was reported... then a third.
    At this point, it was not easy to dismiss the curious case of the sinkholes, craters, shafts, whatever you want to call them.
    By February 2015, a total of seven craters were reported, and people wanted answers. The first official reports stated the craters were caused by explosive methane release, a process connected to global warming....
    But other theories have surfaced as well. The holes were there the whole time, they were just covered by ice plugs, that ice melted and boom - there is a hole again. The methane in the area is typical.
    Unfortunately, the 2nd theory doesn't explain the built up material around the hole, which is indicative of an explosion and not fast melting ice.
    Both theories do have one thing in common, global warming, but that's a subject for a different video.
    Stranger still, some internet detectives believe that the craters are the result of experimental plasma arc weapon technology....
    9.Vottovaara Mountain
    In 1978, a Russian adventurer stumbled across this mysterious and unsettling place. Even though it has grown in popularity, the mountain is still hard to access. There are no paved roads and nice tourist welcome centers that hand out visitor maps.
    With stories of UFO landings, rituals of sacrifice, and eerie “stone pools”, the Vottovaara Mountain will surely be the subject of discoveries in the future. But for now, we only have stories.
    The whole surrounding area is of special importance to the ancient Sami people, who have lived on these lands for 100s of years, and to this day, pagan believers visit the mountain in hopes of understanding it.
    The dead trees give out the weirdest vibes, maybe they are the trapped souls of all those ancient people that were sacrificed here?
    8.Bolshoi Zayatsky Island
    7.Novaya Zemlya
    5.Kizhi Island
    Lots of weird little islands around Russia huh?
    Kizhi island doesn’t have a grand mystery or unexplained history around it, it's just… different.
    The big 22 dome church we see in these pictures was built in 1714 and has managed to stay strong to this day, with only minor repairs. At one point, the church was surrounded by a massive wall that served as protection from Polish and Swedish attacks.
    The island is part of the Kizhi Open Air Museum, and anyone that is interested in the beautiful architecture, can visit around 90 different wooden structures. Pretty cool.
    4.The Amber Room
    3.Mir Mine
    Another TheXvid Certified ClickBait 3000, the mir mine. The Kimberlite Diamond Pipe “Peace” was one of the deepest open pit mines in the world, so big that helicopters are not allowed to fly over it because of the apparent “suction” by its sheer size and depth.
    Well, not really. There isn’t any “suction” or staggering gravitational change, the real reason behind the no fly zone is the change of air temperature above the pit. The temperature difference can cause a deadly loss of lift that an inexperienced pilot can not recover from.
    There is also the whole De Beers conspiracy… which is more fact than conspiracy really. The mining operation in Russia was so big that the De Beers Company, the main distributor of diamonds in the world, had to start buying most of the production from the Mir Mine, so they could still charge exorbitant prices for their diamonds… such nice people right ?
    Screw it, lets look at some more mines, so we have the Mir Mine at
    #4, then the Udachnaya Pipe at #3, at number #2 we have Chuquicamata in Chile; and at #1, the largest man made hole in the world, the Bingham Canyon Mine located in Utah. Needless to say, I’m making a mine video in the near future.
    2.The Motherland Calls
    1.Church of Andrew the Apostle on Vuoksi River
    We have arrived at our final destination; the secluded Church found in the middle of a river. Believe it or not; the church is not 100s of years old, it was actually built in the year 2000.
    The Church is open to anyone who is willing to make the trek across the river. If you are afraid of small boats; you can always wait for the winter, when the water around it freezes.
    So did you know how many time zones Russia spans? The answer is 11, just for comparison, the continental US spans only 4 time zones.

    Marching through Russia the Germans looted the Amber Room and sent it back to the Fatherland. As the Russians kicked Nazi asses all the way back to Berlin they found Schliemann's Gold (Look it up on Google if you don't know what that is), and sent it back to the Motherland, denying for years they had it. After the dissolution of the USSR they said, our bad, we do have it. The Germans demanded it being immediately returned. The Russians were agreeable. They said, "Sure we'll return Schliemann's Gold, as soon as you reture the Amber Room.

    WTF guys?
    Cold War ended at 1991, do you hear about it? Why do you use propaganda from previous century?
    Norilsk built by prisoners, not slaves. There is has never been a slaves in Russia. Unlike the USA.
    I can say: all roads in USA built by slaves; for slaves.
    5600 of about 70 000 died during construction Panama Canal. Are they victims of "congress regime"?
    It's so stupid, guys. Fcuk the propaganda.

      Not by that much. But still there really stands out a lot of CO2. Much more strongly than ecology, people are almost crushed by the almost total absence of the sun for several months and a small number of warm summer days (3-10 days, rarely more).
      Given that the city is closed to foreigners, I would not really trust journalists not from Russia.

    odd shapes near city/town. architecture looks soviet, not even tiny bit of modern Russia there. whole area looks like that. whole surrounding of this lake. Btw that lake looks like on of those chemical water reservoirs u can spot near electro stations in post soviet block countries. With that difference this fuckn lake is a size of Belgium, or even bigger.,73.6145947,425m/data=!3m1!1e3
    No idea what this is, but most buildings look to be demolished. There are some points, towers that look very similar to that NSA tower in Berlin from cold war era. There are numerous spots like that around that lake.,73.5917301,424m/data=!3m1!1e3
    This thing freaked me out. Looks like that satanic symbol, but obviously its not about that. It shape had to came from some kind of purpose for sure. Maybe somebody has a clue what this could be?,74.5197596,3878m/data=!3m1!1e3
    A bit far from other spots, there is marked abandon military base (as i understand it). If im correct its name is Balkhash 9 whatever the fuck that means. Very soviet again tho.,73.4820774,4960m/data=!3m1!1e3
    Sary Szagan - only found some info about that from Polish/Russian internet newspaper called "sputnik". Later on found out that this whole place around that lake is one big military nuclear testing poligon. Or was. Now it seams more like old idea of some anti missile system, that is now active only around Moscow to protect kreml.
    In this article they basically compare it to american area 51, if not better because this shit is for real. Russians had tested there rockets that were meant to protect their land from space attacks and shooting down satellites. one big wtf.
    So thats my idea for some episode on here, could be cool right?

      Избушка там на курьих ножках
      Стоит без окон, без дверей;
      Там лес и дол видений полны;
      Там о заре прихлынут волны
      На брег песчаный и пустой,
      И тридцать витязей прекрасных;
      Чредой из вод выходят ясных,
      И с ними дядька их морской;
      Там королевич мимоходом
      Пленяет грозного царя

      Волгоград переименовывали два раза. Этот город был основан в 1589 году и сначала назывался Царицын, потому что первоначально был расположен на острове на реке Царица. Местные народы по-тюркски называли эту реку «сары-су» - «жёлтая вода», название города восходит к тюркскому «сары-син», что значит «жёлтый остров».
      Google Translate
      Volgograd was renamed twice. This city was founded in 1589 and was first called Tsaritsyn, because it was originally located on an island on the Tsarina River. Local people in Turkic called this river "sary-su" - "yellow water", the name of the city goes back to the Turkic "sary-sin", which means "yellow island".

      He even zoomed in on google maps on this labyrinth and completely ignored the giant monastery with 9m thick granite walls and the Stalinist concentration camp where tens of thousands died on the exact same archipelago...
      Also lake Svetloyar with an entire medieval city rumoured to have sunk in it and to this day people crawl around the shores on their knees. Also countless abandoned military sites, and funky derelict factories if you know where to look. Also Kamchatkas geysirs, and the huge never finished house of soviets building in Kaliningrad that looks like a robot head, and I could go on and on...
      That little church on island is cute but not impressive, you can find many like that and even far older ones, "motherland calls" statue in Stalingrad is meh, the original amber room probably not even in Russia anymore and the copy just another room of many funky ones in the palace.
