The Supersecret Factory In Balaklava

The Supersecret Factory In Balaklava

The supersecret factory of submarine repairing in Balaklava was opened for everybody’s view only in 2003. This unique project was started in 1957, builders worked almost all the day, in three shifts. And the construction was over in 1961. The underground base of the factory served as the military object during the cold war. This object is the building of anti-nuclear protection. In case of danger the factory could automatically and airtightly close and accommodate all the Balaklava population. There was a bakery, storehouses and a hospital, so people might live there for 3 years. The whole area of all rooms and halls is about 5100 square metres.

    • It is in Ukraine.

      And these same pictures are already here, although in black and white – just click the ‘submarine’ tag.

    • You mean those 1-ton curved blast-doors? Sure, quite impressive – but NOT airtight, or do you see any rubber/silicone seals?

  1. F. Bunker here.

    This is the 3rd time you guys show us this base löl, but always kooler than Menhate-em in New Yorkee ; D

    • That may be true, but New York has those really neat Italian Bakeries and those wonderful bagels. Very few places have as nice baked goods as New York City.

      The bakers told me the secret to there success is the water they get from the deep limestone aquifers under the city.

      I understand that now it is easy to get good Eastern European cooking there too, even Russian foods.
