“I saw once how bloggers posted on the Internet a trip to the cemetery of North Korean schooners in the Khasansky district of the Primorsky Territory. I fired up to get there. At first I searched through a satellite, but I could not find any fresh information. last week I went there, having received a pass from the border guards, but, in fact, at random Lazarus The road from Khasan (urban-type settlement in the Khasan district of Primorsky Krai, population 642 people according to the 2017 census - ed.) about 8-10 kilometers, but it is broken, we need a passable car. I arrived at the place late at night, rested on the many kilometers of deserted Khasan beach; the open sea and clean white sand appeared in front of me. Somewhere in the distance I could see border posts, passage, passage, swimming for which is strictly prohibited. Further, as I saw on the map, there is the Tumannaya river, beyond which the territory of North Korea begins. In the opposite side, where there were no prohibition signs,I explored the shore and found this picturesque "shipwreck" wreck.   


As I understand it, these are fishing boats. I found 3 more or less preserved, and dozens of remains half-sprinkled with sand. I took some long exposure shots using additional lighting. At night, the shore looked like a dinosaur graveyard! By all indications, it is clear that they found their sad pier here a long time ago, from some of the boats remained skeletons barely guessed among the sand dunes. Functionally, residents of the village of Khasan cannot use them, but they say they periodically unscrew something, "a photo amateur told East Russia Vadim Kurik.
