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.

  • When I started to write a review, then ran into an interesting situation: the Internet address of the Museum submarines in Balaklava listed on Marble Street 1, while navigation program reported taurian 22 promenade. Bearing in mind that all SOVIET maps of the city Balaklava and even the entire Bay (removed due to specific), then everything falls into place (of course this is the shulivyj time). The price of tickets has pleased, inexpensive. When you enter into subways length 200-300 meters, you can feel the humidity, the walls made the conscience by 3 meters of concrete with reinforcement by 3 cm in diameter. Feel the power of our military, and designers and workers involved in the construction of this secret place. Very well done inserts from photos, small museum, docks for submarines. And it's all downhill! Relatively recently it was all abandoned and vandalized rashishhalos'. I wish good luck to all who recreates the real story and makes it clear that the Russian army is a guarantor of calm in the world, and not vice versa.

  • Former submarine repair factory, now the Museum of submarines. There are two options for visiting on foot and by boat on the tunnel, which took place the submarine. The second option go to the workshops and laboratories. one disappointment in the Museum of submarines I thought go into the submarine, or at least see it up close, but alas-you won't see any submarines themselves
