Kolkhoz Workshops

Колхоз Семинары

These Kolkhoz Workshops belonged to the local farmers who used them to repair and maintain their gear. The buildings are situated in the ПМК-169 district, just outside the Pripyat city gates.

A kolkhoz, short for kollektivnoye khozaystvo, was a Soviet cooperative agricultural enterprise operated on state-owned land. Kolkhozes and their state-owned counterparts Sovkhozes, where workers were paid a wage instead of a share of the profit from state purchases, remained the main form of agriculture until the end of the USSR.

These Kolkhoz Workshops belonged to the town of Novoshepelichi but was later added to the ПМК-169 district of the city Pripyat. The site was abandoned after the city was evacuated, a week after the Chernobyl disaster.
