Lost battery and Gelendzhik catacombs

This is the place of installation of one of the guns of a three-gun battery No. 714 of the Novorossiysk naval base of the Black Sea Fleet. Few people know about it, all paths to this place have overgrown with thorns.

Unlike Zubkov battery, this battery is not so heroic. The battery accepted its first fight on 23 August 1942.

Captain Mikhail Petrovich Chelak was awarded the Order of the Red Banner for courage, 10 battery fighters received orders and medals for courage and bravery during the battles for Novorossiysk

I wonder what was there, was there any underpass, or it’s just a small well?

Small hopper

I was disappointed when I got inside. Nothing interesting.

Here is another interesting place. It seems to be an ordinary beach – a garbage hole, there just were no boobs and asses, because that day was cool enough.

Suddenly. The door in the rock! Yes! The door in the rock! A miracle and not a miracle.

I crawled inside.

To my surprise, the object was absolutely not littered or a chestnut. No homeless, crap, and almost no waste. In general, you can live here and not to hire accommodation in Gelendzhik. Hypothetically, if you dig for the water there, the place becomes a paradise. Built-in free air conditioner and the sea within a stone’s throw.

There are such barracks like these. I wonder why they were built, used, and in general what they needed for? Some people write that it was a large bomb shelter, some write that the command post was reserved and connected with a battery similar to Zubkov battery, and some write that there was a military hospital at the time.

This looks like a real underground town. It reminded me of a new camp from the Gothic game. I even get nostalgic. One of the best games.

There are buildings like these inside the houses.

Graffiti, though existing, is not conspicuous.

It is difficult to understand where they led and what were connected with, because some part is blocked, and this cavity has already occurred naturally. Let’s see where a small turn to the left leads.

That’s all of the object. Well, perhaps it’s time to get out.

  1. Of course, these are not the only catacombs. Other catacombs are located in the Safari Park. There is currently a museum, and a real Russian business is arranged there. Earlier, I visited other catacombs, the command post of the 18th army. The old-timers were also talking about the cement factory, which had subsurface telecommunication lines, where they climbed as children. In general, I think Gelendzhik is an interesting city, it is a pity that it becomes less and less available.
