5 Huge Abandoned Underground Hiding Place for the Soviet Submarines in Pacific

Huge Abandoned Underground Hiding Place for the Soviet Submarines in Pacific

This was a top secret Soviet project. To avoid uneccessary attention of American satellites it was built solely under ground. Tremendous amounts of ground was removed to create huge tunnels under ground filled with water so that a few huge atomic submarines can stay there and hide at once at Pacific coast of
Russia. It took over twenty years to almost complete this thing, construction works started in late 1960s. But then USSR collapsed and it's now staying as a huge monument of the great projects USSR was building. As you see on the map above the thing was huge. Let's see what's inside.

2 Underwater Leaders. What Is Lenin, Stalin and Dzerzhinsky Doing at the Bottom of the Black Sea?

Underwater Leaders. What Is Lenin, Stalin and Dzerzhinsky Doing at the Bottom of the Black Sea?

At Cape Tarhankut in Crimea, a hundred meters from the shore, there is an unusual museum - an underwater analogue of Moscow "Muzeon". In 1992, a diver Vladimir Borumensky found at a depth of 12-15 meters the first sculptures of the Soviet leaders, that had already been dismantled in the Crimean cities and towns. Then busts of Lenin, Marx and Voroshilov settled here. Borumensky planed his venture in a big way and wanted to bring Mao, Mussolini, and Napoleon to the Soviet
pantheon. The Emperor has not appeared on the original Walk of Fame, but divers from all over Ukraine started to complement the collection of Soviet leaders. Today in the underwater Museum there are several dozens of exhibits, from Stalin and Dzerzhinsky to Gorky and Gagarin. There is a department of writers, there is Lenin leading the boy by the hand, and the other rare sculptures that do not fit in the traditional Soviet canon.

9 Abandoned Chukotka

Abandoned Chukotka

Going to the edge of Russia, I imagined something of that kind. Life here is really difficult, and in Chukotka you start believing that the climate prevents from building roads and normal existence of the cities: no stone or wood, no main building materials. In the 1990s and 2000s, people began to leave
that small region, leaving behind abandoned towns and villages. I advise nature lovers to go to Chukotka, but I didn't really like it: the low hills with grass. Tundra is rather boring spectacle. From wild animals I have met only a family of three cranes have sat down to rest.

Kenozerye: Zehnovskaya flour mill

Zehnovo village is one of the most ancient settlements of kenozerskih and its history begins in the 16th century, when, according to one legend, the first inhabitant named Zeh settled here. Presumably, it was someone
from the first Christians arrived at Kenozero during the existence of the Kenoreckyi waterway that connected Lake Onega with river Onega using which Orthodox people from Novgorod came to these lands.

1 Abandoned tropospheric station under the Anadyr

Abandoned tropospheric station under the Anadyr

  Not far from the Anadyr city, about 10 km, at the top of the hill of St. Michael there is a nodal tropospheric station called "Yukon" (8/104 (21/103) M/u - 74239), which is a part of the "North" communication system and a local civil telecentre. As a mobile and satellite communications are developing, the need of having such
an expensive object has gone, and in 2003 the station was finally closed. Telecentre was luckier and stood in a good condition for ten years more. There is no former luxury, but the remnants are still there, far away, attracting both local people and tourists. We also could not resist and went there.

2 A Tour to the Aeroclimatic Camera

A Tour to the Aeroclimatic Camera

Now I would like to write about one of the greatest facilities of the ZIL plant. It is an aeroclimatic camera.   An aeroclimatic complex is a unique facility that simulates various weather conditions for vehicle testing.
Environmental testing and research were conducted in a wide range of ambient temperatures from -60°C to +65°C with regulation of the object air-flow speed of 0:150% km/h, at a relative humidity of 0:100%.
