About 25 km northwest of Kiev, you will find the village of Irpin, Ukraine and for the adventurous, and those willing to hike a bit, you can make your way to an abandoned brick works in the center of town..
It is surrounded by a fence, of course, but there are ways in.. one way is through the glass recycle yard..
Mounds of broken glass, which appeared to be mostly liquor and medical bottles fill an abandoned bridge, where they are separated, ground up and shipped off to places unknown.
The brick works is full of interesting buildings, that are remarkably free of trash..
Possibly because the 2 existing businesses occupying the territory, the glass recycling and a working cement plant, don’t like or encourage “visitors”. Still with no visible “No Entry” signs, we decided to take our chances..
As always, when visiting abandoned places, it is important to remember the Golden Rule –
TAKE NOTHING BUT PICTURES – LEAVE NOTHING BUT FOOTPRINTS
