Naval Museum Complex Balaklava, Balaklava

(4.2/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • You can't be in Balaklava and don't get into the Museum. Yes, let cool enough, damp, not all stands and expositions are ready. But this does not diminish the importance and the magnitude of an object and the people that is erected.

  • A very interesting place and a fascinating tour. 1.5 hour tour in the underground complex pass unnoticed.

  • There are limits-don't let small children cannot make noise, cool and no toilets. Yes, submarines also are not available. Guides for my taste Liška pathos. The object itself is very interesting, here you and the history of the cold war and the secret megasooruzhenie, technical ljubopytnosti, and mesmerizing atmosphere (recalls and true follaut, those in the subject).
