Lost battery and Gelendzhik catacombs

Posted on July 18, 2016 by Andrey


This is the place of installation of one of the guns of a three-gun battery No. 714 of the Novorossiysk naval base of the Black Sea Fleet. Few people know about it, all paths to this place have overgrown with thorns.

Unlike Zubkov battery, this battery is not so heroic. The battery accepted its first fight on 23 August 1942.

Captain Mikhail Petrovich Chelak was awarded the Order of the Red Banner for courage, 10 battery fighters received orders and medals for courage and bravery during the battles for Novorossiysk

Overall, the entire Novorossiysk naval base included:

– training battalion of submarines consisting of SCH-201, SCH -202 (in Feodosia), SCH-203 (repair in Sevastopol), M-51 (repair in Sevastopol), M-52, M-54 (repair in Ochakov), M-55 (repair in Sevastopol), depot ship “Ochakov”;

– Detachment of torpedo boats (6 pcs.);

– 72nd separate artillery battalion consisting of 16th rail 180 mm four-gun battery (Tuapse), 23rd 152 mm four-gun battery (Kodosh Cape);

– 31st 152 mm four-gun battery (Myskhako Cape);

– 714th 130-mm three-gun battery (Gelendzhik, Tonky Cape)

– Raids security (two boats);

– Separate railway squadron;

– Rifle platoon;

– Mine detachment.

The gun rotating on this flange was located here.

I wonder what was there, was there any underpass, or it’s just a small well?

Small hopper

I was disappointed when I got inside. Nothing interesting.

Here is another interesting place. It seems to be an ordinary beach – a garbage hole, there just were no boobs and asses, because that day was cool enough.

Suddenly. The door in the rock! Yes! The door in the rock! A miracle and not a miracle.

I crawled inside.

To my surprise, the object was absolutely not littered or a chestnut. No homeless, crap, and almost no waste. In general, you can live here and not to hire accommodation in Gelendzhik. Hypothetically, if you dig for the water there, the place becomes a paradise. Built-in free air conditioner and the sea within a stone’s throw.

There are such barracks like these. I wonder why they were built, used, and in general what they needed for? Some people write that it was a large bomb shelter, some write that the command post was reserved and connected with a battery similar to Zubkov battery, and some write that there was a military hospital at the time.
