  1. Wow, it seems a spammer doesn’t like this. It is no wonder the US spends the equivalent of the world’s arms budget just to keep us safe.

    I’d rather have a weak military and well-cared for citizens than a military that makes everyone hate us. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

  2. Are there similar abandoned bases in Baltic countries?
    AFAIK USSR was trying hard to change Baltic Sea to “Mare Nostrum” since 50s and the plan supposedly included building a lot of submarine bases in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.
    Do they still exist (if ever built)?

    • Unfortunately there aren’t any large Soviet submarine bases in Estonia at least. There has always been a myth of an underground base in North West Estonia but there was only an onground nuclear submarine training facility, which has been demolished now.
      Furthermore, as I’ve heard only diesel submarines were allowed to sail in the Baltic sea and there wouldn’t have been the need to build a large base for them.

    • Nice Spam. In my country, I make you sex slave to serve my needs. Then I wirr catapurt you into the ocean arr sticky and tired.

  3. So a sub was suppose to fit in these tunnels? They seem was too small for a sub to get through these; especially if you are talking about the Typhoon.

    I also can’t figure out how they would maneuver around the curves.

    • This shelter for diesel submarines. On Black sea never was nuclear boats (and the more so Typhoons).
      There old boats -projects 641 (Foxtrot) and 641Б were based.
      New boats – the project 877 – Kilo – too wide for this shelter.
      In shelter they, possibly did not maneuver, and left a backing

      • Ah okay. Thanks for the info vadikgg.

        There was actually a Foxtrot that was purchased by some people after it was decommissioned. At one point, it was in Long Beach, CA but I don’t know if it is still there.

        This site has some pictures of it:


        (Site could be way out of date. No idea.)

  4. Absolutely used in Half-Life development.
    I am amazed it isn’t riddled in little color splotches from people playing paintball; maybe they use perfume in Ukraine? Awesome lifestyle apartment for dedicated runners.
    Can I has gluon gun?
    Just say no to the radioactive-sewers jumping puzzle level.

  5. Canadian Girl, j00 has t3h 2-much flash CPU killa gene.
    I would not put my sub in your tinsel-lined bay.

  6. I don’t understand why there is this mentality in Russia to abandon everything…don’t they consider REUSING the materials instead of leaving them to go to waste? Where is the sense in that?

  7. Any idea where in Ukrania this is located?

    One day I’ll visit Ukrania and it might be a nice idea to go and check it out…

  8. this place is cool and very historic…i would like to be there someday…it would be awesome to have a tour in this kind of place with your honey ;-}

  9. Russians have a lot of such a bases on another seas, but do not visit Balaklava – dirty & too expensive village. Old buildings are ruined, native Greek population – mainly criminals or old poor fishermen. Very bad roads & extremely dirty beaches, cholera epidemies – every summer, etc.

  10. it’s very very coll place, i was there 2 years ago,amazing,i must say. it is a monument of war & i adore nature in crimea!!!

  11. This is an excellent looking place. I think I shall be applying for a visa right away.

    Better take some Russian lessons also – it probably isn’t that touristy.

  17. Now they have bases buried into sea shelfs 1.5-2.5 miles deep under the oceans.

    They now have tons of underground bases the size of a small city all over the US and a cool submarine channel from the Pacific ocean coast of California to Hawthorne Nevada.

    Thats not including the jump rooms and mag levs that haul ass underground.

    So unbelievable it keeps me from getting into trouble with the spooks…

    You thinking Im an insane conspiracy theorist that watches too many scifi movies basically saves my life once again.

  18. thought it was too small for eg-a typhoon or anything modern..so old diesel subs huh..love seeing ex covert stuff like this..and the sub wrecking yards etc…
    i’m not russian or american, but after reading many of the posts here, i have to feel for the russians..so much ignorance,bias and parochial blind patriotism from americans, who dont seem to realise their government spent huge and similar amounts on war follies during the cold war,and have many covert bases etc dotted around north america..anyway the russians have taken over the world,theyre everywhere via business,commerce,capitalism legal or illegal freemarket or blackmarket..just look in your own backyard,and remeber the old saying “people who live in glasshouses should watch out for approaching aeroplanes”

  19. Balaklava – is the wonderful palce. Located near Sevastopol (Crimea).

    I have a friend in Sevastopol. His mother works in Balaklavian museum (former Submarine plant).

    This museum is really Awesome!!! I was there.

  24. i think it’s terrible when people decide to make attractions out of these. first thing they do is change how it was and restrict access.
