5 Giant Underground Fridge in Samara Russia

Giant Underground Fridge in Samara Russia

Sergey has visited a huge underground structure in the Russian city of Samara. This refrigerator can hold up to two hundred railway cars of food! The Soviet Union liked to build big, and this is one of the examples of such construction. Also, from outside you would never, ever suspect that there is something that huge below this regular red brick building in the middle of the city. Soviet authorities were keeping the strategic surplus of food here for
Samara city. Samara has a population of one million citizens and in case of a disaster they need lots of food, so they built this huge storage locker and placed it deep underground under a regular house so that the enemy would not suspect it and would not bomb it. Even many of the people who live here don't suspect that such a huge structure is hidden underground, and thanks to Sergey we can see it too now! Welcome inside.
