Not so far from Anadyr, Russia, there is an abandoned military city, Anadyr-1 (Gudym). Nearby is a top secret military facility - an underground self-contained base for nuclear ammunition storage. Its galleries are kilometers long, they are fully protected from nuclear attacks. Cargo transportation was performed by electric cars going along the light railway. The facility had two main
entrances and several disguised ones. Facility "S" was built in full secrecy in 1958. In 1986 all nuclear weapons were taken away from the base, after that it was used as a storage base of an Anadyr military garrison. In 2002 it was abandoned by all the military. According to some sources the base kept captured archives of the nazi organization, Ahnenerbe.
Submarine B-396 is one of the most popular Moscow museums, but this photo story will not repeat what has already been shown or told. The diesel-electric submarine B-396 "Novosibirsk Komsomolets" was built in 1980 to be used as part of the
Northern Fleet and sail to the Mediterranean Sea, North and South Atlantic, western coast of Africa, in the Barents and Norwegian Seas. The submarine was decommissioned in 1998 and exhibited in the Naval museum in 2006.
The coastal turret battery № 981, named after Klim Voroshilov, is located on Russkiy Island, in the Russian Far East. It is about to celebrate its 80th anniversary. Built in 1934, it used to represent the combat power of
Russia in the Pacific Ocean, today it's part of an historic museum. The calibre of the battery is 305 mm. In all of the entire post-Soviet territory, a similar battery is only to be found in Sevastopol, Russia.
Post-Soviet countries are full of abandoned military places, but Gudym or secret base Anadyr-1, must be the coolest among them all. Geographically it's the closest to the USA and for obvious reasons it had enough missiles to fully destroy Alaska, Washington state,
California and part of South Dakota. Probably similar bases existed on the American side. Unfortunately, what was previously a super secret city surrounded by numerous military units does not have a future anymore. It is abandoned forever...
