I recently explored an abandoned Young Pioneer Camp in Spitak, Armenia. Armenia was part of the Soviet Union for 70 years.
A Young Pioneer camp (Russian: Пионерский лагерь) is similar to the Boy Scouts, and was a place for children of the Soviet Union and other socialist countries to spend time in the summer.
The camp is set in the hills and I discovered some truly amazing mosaics designed and created from the days of the Soviet Union. The craftsmanship is incredible.
Take a look at my blog post to learn about my trip to this abandoned camp at globalgaz.com/abandoned-young-pioneer-camp-in-armenia
