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.

  • Just want to say-bring warm clothing, jacket, pants and scarf, otherwise you can freeze strongly. Good feeling when you look at the history of, and admiration for what generally can be built. In General, I'm not upset that went.
