Emerald Pioneer camp

Pioneer camps were similar to Scouts or Cubs. In the summer, children would spend some time here with others and take part in various activities and learn different skills. There are more than 100 buildings here and most are painted with a different Soviet cartoon characters.

Unfortunately this place burnt down in April 2020 during a fire.
