abandoned coastline canon in Russia 1

This is an abandoned army base on the sea coastline near the Murmansk city. It looks like it stays abandoned for quite a while and was built back in 1946 to protect Russian Northern coastline from somebody who might come without peace.

    What is the exact location of the fortress complex?
    It was hopelessly obsolete by 1946. It must have been built during 30s.

    Eerie, we have places like that on the English coast. Some dating back to the Napoleonic wars.

    Don’t think I have ever seen one where the armament was left though, they were all thoroughly de-commissioned.

    OMG this site ROCKS! Love the insane comments by Zafarad! Great comedy!

    Seriously, tho’, I saw a documentary which touched on this series of bunkers, and they were started in the 30’s and completed as they appear in the photos only in the last year of WW II. Germans tried to overrun it, with the desire to capture it, but the Russians inside decided to blow it up—with themselves inside—rather than surrender it or lose it to the Germans. Amazing bravery. Hats off to the Ruskies!

  19. I think these pictures should be published on http://www.forbidden-places.net/
    It’s a urban exploration site that tracks places like these.
    But great pics, great place.

    once again sad pictures about our passed grandeur :(

  33. Cymond says:

    This seems to be one of the more intact abandoned facilities. There is still some equipment. I also noticed that in http://englishrussia.com/images/coastline_canon/12.jpg there is some small rms ammunition on the ground. I’m guessing 7.62x54r but I really can’t tell. This place certainly seems to have a lot to say. I’m a bit at a loss for words.

    Interesting that the batteries were constructed in 1946. In the US, the coast artillery corps was disbanded in 1950 and all guns cut up for scrap.
