Abandoned School in Teriberka

All Moscovites come here, in the small village Teriberka, to see all abandoned – people, roades, buildings, lifes. In Moscow there is another life, then here, on the edge of the world.


This abandoned school is located in Teriberka, Murmansk region. It is easy to get in and out – all the doors are opened. No guardian, nothing.


Teiberka itself became famous after Russian director and screenwriter Andrey Zvyagintsev releazed movie Leviathan in 2014. After that many tourist started to come here just to see those landscapes and such people. Suddenly this place from a forgotten village became a top-tourist destination.

There and here became to appear different hotels, restaurants, attractions, new tourist-sights. This abandoned school is one of the places that tourists “must” visit while there. It’s history is quite…sad. It was closed just in 2005. Someone bought it to build a hotel. The school itself was built in 1888, it overcame two wars, revolution, but money were stronger.


Slowly this school is turning to be an art space. There are many different graffities inside and just inscriptions dedicates to today’s problems in Russia.

Luckily as well there were different subjects left from those times, when school was still opened. There are some shits, books, tables, different appliances.

And of course the view! Puples who were studying here were so lucky! They could see a north arctic ocean, just sitting on the lesson.

When we were leaving this place we saw some other “stalkers”, who wanted to make their own exploration. But even though the place is so much “spoiled”, it was worth to visit.
