Burnt maternity hospital in Ramenskoe

This burnt abandoned maternity hospital is located in a small town Ramenskoe in Moscow region. The hospital was burnt in 2008 and hasn't been restored yet. Its best years are in the past... Now it is almost impossible to get to the second floor of the building. Just a small black puppy was walking around the empty corridors. In one of the operating rooms, there are still some medical equipment, such as a special table for childbirth. So many people were born on it, and now it is just thrown in the corner.

Fersman Mineralogical Museum

At Leninskiy Prospect in Moscow, there is one of the oldest in Europe mineralogical museums. The museum is close related to the history of mineralogy in Russia. All the famous Russian mineralogists worked at the museum or their activity was related to it in some way. Museum was founded in Saint-Petersburg in 1716 as a mineral cabinet of Kunstkammer. It was transfered to Moscow in 1934.
