12 The Special Underground Fortified Area

The Special Underground Fortified Area

Posted on July 18, 2011 by team

Before the beginning of the WWII an edict to create a “zone of total defence” around Moscow was adopted. This area included different fortifications that could detain fascists for some time if they came up to Moscow. Huge buildings, bunkers, tank guns and trenches were constructed very quickly. That is prisoners who must hold the defence. Fortunately there was no need to do this. The enemy army was stopped on the approaches to the fortified area. Here we’ll speak about one of such places that is located in Nakhabino town of the Moscow region.

The position territory enclosed and empty at first sight.

But if you look hard, you could see sticking up tank guns in bushes.

Every gun has its own emergency exit, located at a little distance.

There are two small rooms inside. The first one is where the cannon itself is located.

The second is a small room with a cupboard for ammunition storage.

In addition to numerous guns, you can find two huge “hills”, hiding a bunker for cars.

6 trucks can fit here.

The second “hill” is tightly closed.

Hidden small dwelling dugouts.

Very often rooms have cylindrical shapes and they are divided by a partition.

    Pretty cool place. It would be an awesome park for kids. I know I would have loved to climb all over those turrents. Alas, it is Russia. It will always be abandoned and decaying.

  2. Boritz says:

    Some of the forts appear to be post WW2. Nothing vandalized, so is this within the territory of the military reservation?

  3. Otis R. Needleman says:

    I just cannot believe the sheer number of abandoned places in Russia.

    The pic with “6 truck can fit inside” is an example of a vehicle shelter from the late 1950s.

  6. historian says:

    Why should the keep old military buildings in a forest, then its cheaper to build new ones, moreover in a better location?
