Today can see what submarines look like from the inside. Welcome to a museum based inside a submarine boat. It sails in the waters of Khimki water reservoir (the Moscow region) and everybody is invited to the place.

The submarine boat was built in 1979 in Nizhny Novgorod. It stood guard in the Atlantic ocean and Mediterranean Sea from 1980 to 1998. In April 2001 it was re-equipped. The internal design underwent minimal changes. After repairs it was announced a museum.

The boat can go 300 deep and has one anchor. It is 90 m long and 8,6 m wide. It embraces 78 people and has 24 torpedoes.

Only a group of at least 10 people can go inside. It meets next to the entrance. Groups are gathered together easily on weekends.

The excursion lasts for 1 hour. But it is very interesting and time really flies there.

Torpedoes are stored in the first section of the boat.

People can move from one section to another one through doors that were made later. Diving suits are also available.

The boat could use all the 6 torpedoes at once. Every torpedo was aimed at a different target.

Today many air conditioners are available though previously it was not so easy for submariners to breathe in very fresh air.

The galley is really small and it must have been difficult for a cook to make food for 78 people every day here.

Submariners got food of the highest quality. The menu was never the same.

The place is very interesting especially for boys as it is allowed to touch all the details and sit in the navigator’s seat. The boat itself is installed on a kind of foundation which helped to elevate the boat for 4 meters and it was easy to view the rudder propeller unit.

  1. Russia was a military complex, it is sad the only exhibits are of military objects.

    The life of a commoner was under police state monitoring and the ‘conscript’ life was not fun.

    • Oh so you were born in the soviet union? If not you don’t know the soviet union very well. I look around london and see cameras look back at me every street I walk, I guess the west is a police state as well.
