12 Abandoned Battery In The Crimea

Abandoned Battery In The Crimea

Posted on July 13, 2011 by kulichik

Last time we visited an abandoned military object in The Crimea. Today we’ll have a chance to look at an abandoned storage battery close to Balaclava, a town in the Crimea, Ukraine. During the Second World War, Balaklava was the southernmost point in the Soviet-German lines.

The battery was built by Russian kings in 1912 and abandoned at the time when Soviet power was established. It had actually been used till 1930. Now the military object is covered with field flowers. Its  territory starts with a broken concrete bridge and a door with greeting words that says: “Welcome!”

The signs of hospitality are followed by a road that hasn’t been used for quite a long time.

      Testi is right. Crimea already has a lot of historic attractions and beautiful coast. With just a bit of caring…

        Have you ever been there?

        • Chac Mool says:

          No, but I like what I have seen here and in other sites about that place and the Black Sea coast. I hope I can go next summer with my camera (and without my dominatrix ex-girlfriend).

          Looks like my answer was “moderated”. No, I haven’t been there, but I want to. Pics from here and other websites give me a good idea of a nice visit. Probably next summer.
