Well Preserved Huge Soviet Shelter

Posted on March 26, 2014 by team

Today, we want to show you a nice big protective shelter that served as an alternate control post and a training center. This well-preserved building is spacious enough for 3000 people and has a standard layout. By the way, in the image above you can see the map depicting strategic offensive American forces attacking the USSR… Yeah, they were trying to take all precautions…

“Bag for training”.

This classroom was used to teach people how to provide first (medical) aid.

The classroom is devoted to the theory of skin and lung protection.

Characteristics of destruction from the center of a nuclear detonation.

Fire protection classroom.

Classroom for lessons devoted to recovery after a nuclear attack.

The classroom for operational and tactical training is one of the best.

Alarm apparatus.

Various posters.

“Silence please while classes are in progress!”

Archive room.

Cinema projection room.

Diesel generator room.

Water tanks.

Drinking water.

There is an independent section of the shelter here, it has its own air filtration unit, toilet, entry, exit and rooms.

    Does anyone know what the second to last picture on page 8 is? Looks like a crude battery?

  3. geo says:

    Most likely a backup battery for the comm center.

  4. petrohof says:

    yes it is a battery, may just be an example, some stuff looks more like a display than a funtional shelter.

  5. Mandea says:

    Yes, they are Plante cells. Expensive to maintain and toxic but rugged and reliable. Their service life was 15 – 20 years.

  6. Dag says:

    USSR-RUSSIA is obsessed with bunker buildings along with military. Russia does have best weapon systems on earth but that is what they focus 100% of their money on.

  7. Erik Meister says:

    It should be kept as a museum
