4 What Is Hidden Under Moscow Flowerbeds

What Is Hidden Under Moscow Flowerbeds

Posted on February 25, 2012 by

Some flowerbeds in Moscow guard amazing secrets. The photograph above has been taken 48 underground under one of the flowerbeds of the city.

Enormous money was poured into all these underground complexes for J. Stalin but today they lost their significance and their current condition leaves much to be desired. Abandonment, darkness, dust… It is only people who sacrificed their health and time to build these constructions who still keep some of their secrets in memory.

The only place of this kind which managed to rise from the ashes is object #42 in Taganka which has been turned into a museum of the cold war. Below is a story of another underground facility, similar to object #42 but with a much sadder fate…

The flowerbed described above looks like a regular flowerbed. Its only difference was the mine shaft used to build a secret bunker deep underground to protect the government in case of a nuclear conflict. This place would also have all necessary communications which were constructed to supply the bunker with electricity, air, etc. Today you won’t find any of it.

It took them several days to dig out the flowerbed and move aside the large concrete plate blocking the entrance to the underground bunker. It will take you 30 minutes to go down.

In the photograph you can see what has left after the secret mine shaft which is abandoned today but still remains secret. On the left, there are pipes which were used to provide the bunker’s diesel power station with diesel fuel and oil. On the right, there are air pipes.

This place used to be a communications room.

Semicircular vaults show the diameter of the block made of reinforced concrete tubes.

Its conference hall.

Enetering the engineering and utility services room. That wooden door looks well-preserved.

    This hole is for the “people” who represent us. There’s plenty of bunkers in the U.S. too, so while the world’s proletariat get eviscerated and fried by the acts of governments/nations, the clean rich will be wining and dining with their bought-and-paid-for pols safe in the bowels of the Earth.

      what is your profession? do you work in a factory? do you build homes or roads? or, like marx, are you just another member of the intelligentsia full of hot air with uncalloused hands?

        People are people, regardless of social class, and discrimination is a door that swings both ways. Resentment toward those who have not toiled in back-breaking labor is just as bad as the derision that the elite have for everybody else. To have allies from disparate backgrounds encourages adaptability when faced with an uncompromising opponent.

    “We want information, information, information.”
    “Who are you?”
    “The new number two.”
    “Who is number one?”
    “You are number six.”
    “I am not a number, I am a free man.”

    Not a prisoner I’m a free man,
    And my blood is my own now.
    Don’t care, where the past was,
    I know where I’m going…Out!
