Secret Submarine Base in Balaclava

At one time we’ve already written about Balaclava, and here is another photo report from the underground museum – former secret submarine base.

The entrance. The inscription calls for keeping military and state secrets.

A long tunnel with thick heavy doors and hermetic seals. It seems that the shelter can protect against flood and even against a nuclear blow.

A lockout mechanism is behind the wall. Each door is loсked and opened by it’s own mechanism.

A long and creepy cavate corridor.

All the corridors are lit with old lamps.

Here missiles for antisubmarine warfare ships can be found. This one is still factory-packaged.

  1. A. Bunka here. COOL pics. Reminds me of the basement of Hotel Russia. I was told, “laundry is in basement”, those were some long corridors down there man. The laundry lady told me, “no guest has ever come down here before.” I felt privledged to have seen it. There is a secret subway line running below this basement, if the internet is to be believed.

  2. Look, they forgot to dress one of the dummies. What kind of half-azzed museum is this anyway, silly Ukrainians, museum’s aren’t for kids!

  3. I dont get it, why do you call every door ‘hermetically sealing’, since clearly they are not.

    First one – the curved doors – are just a blast door, protecting against the blast wave – usually the first doors in a bunker.

    On other doors, no rubber/silicone seam is visible, so they are just doors – there goes your ‘hermetically sealed’ theory…

  4. I found the “all corridors lit by old lamps” funny. Being 55 they look pretty normal to me. This blog is fascinating, I see young Russians that have no memory of the cold war discovering their heritage that I lived through. The perspective is quite refreshing, but somewhat biased in favour of “the American way”, which is also obviously doomed! If we survive it all, I hope the world works better. In the meantime, I will keep visiting here for all the very interesting updates.
