Exploring the Abandoned “Plague Fort” in Kronstadt, Russia

For more photos and videos from Fort Alexander I, explore the Форт «Император Александр I» (Чумной) location page.

In the Gulf of Finland, a tiny fortified island sits quietly off the coast of Kronstadt, Russia. The Russian military constructed Fort Alexander I in 1845 as a way to guard the waters near Saint Petersburg. Although the fort played a key role in resisting military tensions of the time, it was never used in actual battles. By the late 1800s, the entire island was handed over to the Imperial Institute of Experimental Medicine (currently known as the Institute of Experimental Medicine of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences), who then converted the fort into a research laboratory for plague and other bacterial diseases. Known as the “Plague Fort,” the facility is currently preserved as a public sightseeing destination that provides mysterious, abandoned spaces to capture by visiting and local Instagrammers alike.

Left-wing guerrillas have been waging a bloody war against the Colombian government and the population for the past fifty years. To carry on this conflict, The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), the National Liberation Army (ELN) and emerging right-wing armed groups have been recruiting increasing numbers of children and youths.There is no precise data on the number of child combatants in Colombia, only estimates. Human Rights Watch places the figures as high as 11,000 child soldiers. 

Photographer Juan Arredondo has been awarded a Getty Images Editorial Grant for his project ‘Born in Conflict,’ which documents the consequences of Colombia’s ongoing war. Read more about Juan and the project.
