If I had not seen it with my own eyes, I never believed in my life that in a pine forest, on the shore in this place still the full river Belaya (Agidel) is …
Just imagine: swimming pool … on the edge of a pine forest … next to the river shore. Of course, now it is not a valid pool, but the fact that it remains for 25 years of launch.
To visit this place we have long wanted. The case was introduced only today.
In the Urals is hot.
Just incredible pecked.
No, sometimes we have «attacks» of good weather, but so that the temperature of 40 in the shade keeps the third week in a row … No Crimea or Sochi is needed. In general, after the street thermometer knocked out the window with a scream:
Love me, I dismissed from such work!
We decided to train in the vicinity of Beloretsk, and at the same time finding the place of interest to us. 50 minutes of the road and our pine forest is welcomed.
The fact is that in this forest is located … Pioneer camp has been located. Oleg Koshevoy («Sosnovy Bor»). He had no departmental affiliation, he was not lucky with the rich chiefs, he was not bought in public money, he just stood on the balance of the city.
Every summer, children from Beloretsk, Magnitogorsk and Meshgorka were healed in this camp, and the city allocated money for its content and repair.
Private Soviet pioneer camp, built in a deaf provincial town, where people lives with Gulkin’s nose, could afford to build a huge pool.
But after all, one of the cleanest rivers of Bashkiria is flowing, white, beautiful beaches, soft sand. This river is rather cold and warms only in very hot weather. It was the main reason for the construction of the pool.
The state has allocated money, and a small Olympic pool has been built in the children’s camp, which was equipped with locker rooms, swimming paths and competitions. The pool was filled not from the river, but from the armored number of the artesian well, which gave the purely, practically unsubscribed water.
Not far from the pool, a fully asphalted fireplace was located on which the opening and closing of each shift was celebrated. As well as a band for crossing competitions. Standing sandbox for long jumps.
All children resting in the pioneer camp participated in team and individual competitions, handed over the Tests on the RATES, received icons and were proud of them. One of these children was my wife — Natalia.
It was she who told me about this place: accidentally last year came here, waiting for us with children from a one-day alloy.
With the collapse of the USSR, when the former heroes were nobody unnecessary, the camp was renamed «Seagull». In this view, he existed until 2007, after which it was sold to private owners, and instead of the camp there was a rest house «Pine edge».
Now there is a holiday home itself — dreams about the new center of attraction of tourists were not destined to come true. A huge territory with a bunch of corps standing by the river in a pine forest is sold for completely funny money.
But no one wants to give these money. New owners are trying to sell the territory in parts: plots in 1 hectare with dachas in 440 square meters are sold for a pitiful 900 thousand.
Pool and sports grounds do not restore. They are almost completely destroyed. All metal, which was cut off, did not touch only the old tin stand with the achievements of pioneers. Thin tin, like the whole pool, turned out to be no one.
The surroundings were abundantly thickened by bottles and various plastic garbage. The field gradually overwhelms wild forest raspberries, a very tasty strawberry grows in the glade.
Despite the fact that we left this place rested, refreshed by clean water Agiden, was sad. Usually, when writing articles, I try to joke … Today I do not want.
Truly we live on the remains of a highly developed civilization, which for the ordinary camp, in the deaf forest near the river, could afford to build a huge pool to children. And the slogan «All the best — children!» It was not just a slogan at that time.
