Urban Exploring | Astangu

Our little trip started from the idea that we wanted to do a fantasy themed photo shoot at a location thats abandoned andhas nature taking back it’s place, so we went to Astangu, a place about which we heard was perfect for the shoot.What we found was beyond our imagination – small and large abandoned buildings, warehouses, tunnels all coveredwith moss, trees and grass. They were all razed, some of them had been burned but some looked fairly new.

Meie väike tripp algas sellest et meil tekkis mõte et võiks teha fantaasiashoodi metsa kasvanud asukohas, niisiis läksime shoodi jaoks asukohta otsima teades, et astangul asuvad mahajäetud hooned ja neid pidi terve mets täis olema. Meie leid oli üllatavalt suur kui me avastasime nii pisikesi kui ka suuri mahajäetud hooneid ja ladusid. Mõned olid räsitumad ja põlenud ning teised olid täiesti tühjad ja nägid üsnagi uued välja.


This small building was right on the edge of the forest.
Selline pisem punker asus kohe metsapiiri ääres.


The warehouse was an amazing find in my opinion, it had this old industrial feeling to it and it was just enough damaged that it looked perfect for some photos in the future.
See maha jäetud laohoone oli üks väga super leid minumeelest, Sellel on parajalt industriaal feeling ja samas ka selline vana ja lagunenud välimus mis on mõne fotoshoodi jaoks lausa ideaalne .


As the pictures show then you can see that it looks exactly like you’d expect a building to look like after a few decades of being empty – it’s large dark rooms covered in graffiti in the middle of it and smaller office-like rooms with large windows that provided plenty of light on the side.
The building had two floors, when we had finished exploring the ground floor we went up through a stairwell that was pitch black, it looked stable in the light of our flashlights but you never really know. The second floor was disappointing though – it had nothing but a burnt floor and a view down.
Nagu näha siis seest on ta täpselt selline nagu võib oodata peale mõnekümne aasta pikkust tühjalt seismist, parajalt suur ja avatud, graffitit täis ja keskel suhteliselt vähe valgust ning kõrvaltubades suured aknad.
Sellel kahekorruselisel hoonel on ka kasutatav trepp üles mis taskulampide valguses tundus suhteliselt okei aga nagu sellistes kohtades ikka tuleb olla ettavaatlik sest kunagi ei tea kui stabiilne see tegelikult on. Teisel korrusel ja trepikohjas puudus valgus täielikult, seega seal ei näinud eriti kuhu astuda. Teisel korrusel polnud eriti midagi peale põlenud põranda ja vaate alla.

The next awesome thing that we found was a house that had been completely retaken by the forest – it was about thesize of an average farmhouse, it’s roof had collapsed in and there was grass, moss and smaller trees everywhere indoors.It was like stepping into a fairy tale in a way.
Järgmine vinge leid oli meil selline põnev metsa kasvanud katuseta majake. Selline enam vähem keskmise suurusega hoone mille siseruumides kasvasid kas väikest kasvu puud või siis muru mis annab kohale parajalt fantaasialiku välimuse.

When we went on we found the main thing we actually came there for – the ammunition storage tunnels that were a part of Peter the Great’s naval fortress built between 1912 and 1918. They’re U shaped tunnels mined into a cliff, while it was planned to build about 33-39 of them only six were actually finished, out of which two were later reinforced with concrete after the second world war to be used as nuclear shelters. Allegedly the tunnels also had railway tracks in them but we didn’t find any.
Edasi minnes jõudsime meie põhiobjektini milleks olid Peeter Suure Merekindluse laskemoonalaod .
Need laod pärinevad 20. sajandst enne teist maailmasõda. Algselt plaaniti ehitada umbes 33-39 sellist u kujulist ladu aga valmis sai ainult 6. Peale teist maailmasõda ehitati kahele esimesele tunnelile ette betoonist kaarjate külgkoridoridega sissepääseehitised et need sobiksid ka tuumavarjenditeks. Väidetavalt pidid tunnelites olema ka rauteerööpad aga praegu puudusid tunnelites rööpad ja muud ehitised.

 


The further we got the older the tunnels looked.
Mida kaugemale me jõudsime seda vanema väljanägemisega tunnelid olid.

All the way to the point where they looked more like caves.
Lõpetades enam vähem selliste koopalaadsetega..


A large part of the tunnels were collapsed and the ones you could still get in to had holes in the ceiling illuminating
the interior, the light and the trees that fell in with the ground above gave it an interesting look.
Väga suur osa tunnelitest olid kokku varisenud ning enamikes kuhu sisse veel sai paistis laest valgus andes omapärase efekti koos alla langenud puudega.


And obviously – the obligatory creepy picture when it comes to talking about any tunnels.
Kohustuslik creepy pilt.
