Short trip to Berdsk

Made a short trip to nearby town of Berdsk today.  It is on the south side of the ‘Ob sea’ reservoir.

No buildings in Berdsk predate 1915 as the old town was flooded in the late 1950’s to create the reservoir.

Above is the cathedral in Berdsk, built in the 90’s.

This town allegedly once housed a Soviet bioweapons production facility.  I’m guessing it’s now either knocking out low-cost cosmetics or in a state of decay but who knows.
