6 The Museum In A Submarine

The Museum In A Submarine

Today can see what submarines look like from the inside. Welcome to a museum based inside a submarine boat. It sails in the waters of Khimki water reservoir (the Moscow region) and everybody is invited to the place.

The submarine boat was built in 1979 in Nizhny Novgorod. It stood guard in the Atlantic ocean and Mediterranean Sea from 1980 to 1998. In April 2001 it was re-equipped. The internal design underwent minimal changes. After repairs it was announced a museum.

The boat can go 300 deep and has one anchor. It is 90 m long and 8,6 m wide. It embraces 78 people and has 24 torpedoes.

Only a group of at least 10 people can go inside. It meets next to the entrance. Groups are gathered together easily on weekends.

The boat is entered from the right side.

The excursion lasts for 1 hour. But it is very interesting and time really flies there.

Torpedoes are stored in the first section of the boat.

People can move from one section to another one through doors that were made later. Diving suits are also available.

    The ‘Orljonok’ ekranoplane, which is visible in the 6th and 7th picture would have also been an interesting thing to see.

    Russia was a military complex, it is sad the only exhibits are of military objects.

    The life of a commoner was under police state monitoring and the ‘conscript’ life was not fun.

      Oh so you were born in the soviet union? If not you don’t know the soviet union very well. I look around london and see cameras look back at me every street I walk, I guess the west is a police state as well.
