Few people know that once Abkhazia was a place where nuclear weapons were developed. We are going to show you one of the objects where it was happening - object "A". Arms race and development of nuclear weapons began after the war. For these purposes many scientists who had worked for the Third Reich were attracted. According to some data in general seven thousand
specialists from Germany were working in this sphere. 300 of them did their work in Sukhumi, Abkhazia. Object "A" was one of the places in the city where they worked. Below are some pictures of once secret bunkers which accomodated a plant of nuclear weapons. All the equipment was taken away long ago but the place is worth seeing anyway.
Tkuarchal power plant in Abkhazia used to provide energy not only for the city of Tkuarchal itself but also for the neighbouring districts. Its pipes were smoking so much that all around was getting black. The
power plant consumed a great amount of coal. In the end of the 80s they started to replace coal with gas. In the wartime the object was fully damaged and those pipes do not smoke today at all.
