To get into the past you don’t have to build a time machine or conjure, it’s enough to go down at a dark night as deep as your fear allows you, and then climb as higher as you can. This is how some guys went back to the times of the 1960s, to the communist past of Soviet miners.
Rusty elevator shaft that is almost 100 m high (330 ft).
It looks as if the place was once exploded.

Part of the underground crushing plant.
“Do not drink mine water.”
The crushing plant is really huge, it can be compared with the size of a four-five-storey building. It has several levels, a lot of underground rooms, balconies, staircases.

Here they used to unload trolleys. The red star on the wall is still visible.
Ore from the trolleys went to the bunker and then to the huge vibrating screen.
Viewing from above.
Special ventilation chambers.
Tunnel to the premises of the crushing plant.
The plant was powered by an underground power substation.
From here they controlled the electrical equipment.

12 hours in such a place is quite enough. It’s time to get back to the modern time.
