Naval Museum Complex Balaklava, Balaklava

(220+ reviews on the web)
Military Museum
Step inside a nuclear fallout shelter at Naval Museum Complex Balaklava, which features submarine facilities, exhibits on the Crimean War, and an arsenal of weapons ranging from torpedoes to nuclear missiles. Located in an underground base below the mountains, the complex once possessed a highly sophisticated network of camouflaging equipment. Its protective systems kept it nearly indestructible--able to handle a direct hit by nuclear bombs. Here you'll see underground water channels with a dry dock, warehouses, and repair shops for the 21 submarines that could fit inside. Take a look at the exhibited warship models, naval equipment, and memorabilia. Dress warmly, as the temperatures here remain about 15 C (59 F) throughout the year.

  • Visited repair submarines in Balaklava. Grandiose construction impresses with its scale. Interesting and informative tour.

  • Very impressive construction of Soviet times, excursion lasts about 1.5 hours, during this time the spend on internal bunker starting from repair dock and to a private object (the shelter). On the way stop with various exhibits. It's a shame that so many were looted, but now something you can see and touch the once secret legacy of Soviet power and the cold war
