Abandoned Russian Town that Stored Nuclear Weapons 200 Km from USA Coast in Winter

Abandoned Russian Town that Stored Nuclear Weapons 200 Km from USA Coast in Winter

This town Gudym is just 200 km away from USA. Probably this is why it was used as a top secret warehouse for the nuclear weapons. The heart of the town is a huge concrete hole in the ground that used to store nuclear weapons. The surrounding houses were used for the families working on this underground object. Now everything stays abandoned. Houses sometimes burn in fires, and underground maze is used by strangers. We had some photos from here before, but Sergei, Russian blogger, went there in winter and saw how it looks like:

Somewhere here is a hidden entrance into underground maze used to store nuclear weapons.

If you don’t know where is the entrance you would never find it.

Everything of value was already stolen.

This dolly is a two meter thick gate used in case of explosion to block the rest of the place. It weighs 20 tons and made of concrete.

Tunnel is curved to reduce possible shockwave of explosion. It was built by same builders who made Moscow subway. But this is 10,000 km away from Moscow, 200 km to Alaska.

Ammo boxes.

This is a most mysterious hallway in this place.

It was protected by a few sets of very thick metal doors.

That lead to a very small room.

And it’s still a mystery what was stored here.

  2. Officially it was called Anadyr-1, but local people called it Gudym in honor of Colonel Gudymov who was at the head of city construction and committed suicide under strange circumstances right after the work was done.
