The Special Underground Fortified Area

The Special Underground Fortified Area

Before the beginning of the WWII an edict to create a “zone of total defence” around Moscow was adopted. This area included different fortifications that could detain fascists for some time if they came up to Moscow. Huge buildings, bunkers, tank guns and trenches were constructed very quickly. That is prisoners who must hold the defence. Fortunately there was no need to do this. The enemy army was stopped on the approaches to the fortified area. Here we’ll speak about one of such places that is located in Nakhabino town of the Moscow region.

There are two small rooms inside. The first one is where the cannon itself is located.

  1. Pretty cool place. It would be an awesome park for kids. I know I would have loved to climb all over those turrents. Alas, it is Russia. It will always be abandoned and decaying.

  2. Some of the forts appear to be post WW2. Nothing vandalized, so is this within the territory of the military reservation?
