Abandoned secret facilities of the former Soviet Union
• Abandoned secret facilities of the former Soviet Union,
of interest include the former empire.
In the Soviet Union created a huge number of objects varying degrees of secrecy. Much of these incredible complexes sunk into the fly after the power collapse. It is very sad, because today each of these objects could become a real tourist attraction.
1. Crimean NPP
So it was not completed.
Huge NPP, which construction is planned in 1964. At the same time they were made the initial projects. To launch the first reactor stations would already in 1989. However, for the construction of all it went bad, and subsequently stalled initiative altogether. The ill-fated period of adjustment finally buried the project eventually went to the station to be plundered by looters.
2. The station submarines in Balaklava
There is now a movie being filmed.
As the truth of the legendary base of Soviet submarines, which is now converted into a tourist site. Several times Balaclava even became a place for shooting films. Closed secret facility in 1994. The main reason was the same disintegration of the USSR and, as a consequence - the inability to contain such a large object.
3. Atomic lighthouse at Cape Aniva
Zakanservirovan and plundered.
The unique lighthouse that stands today is actually not the case. Located on the conservation and can even be dangerous for tourists. In the best years at this facility were on watch up to 12 people. By now the lighthouse day almost completely ransacked by looters, however, some equipment still managed to take with him.
flooded and no one needs.
Unique missile system, which today is no use to anyone. It is on conservation. It located near the capital of Latvia. It was built in 1964 at the height of the Cold War between the USSR and the USA. At the moment all the tunnels and missile complex mine flooded.
The base in the midst of the sea.
This Soviet "Fort Boyard". Once this building on the water was one of the most secret Soviet facilities where developed and tested for the needs of the fleet various types of weapons, in particular - a torpedo. The project turned already to the middle of the 60s no longer needed, so quickly changing trends in the field of weapons.
6. The study of the ionosphere station
Do not have time to finish this project.
Scientific object, which today has become a place of pilgrimage for stalkers and looters (if between these two categories in general there is a difference). Built station of studying the ionosphere before the collapse of the USSR. Unique soviet complex consists of several antenna fields. Today, it's just not worth anyone right under the open sky.
It could be a collider.
The Soviet Union could have its own Hadron Collider. The particle accelerator was built in the Moscow region in 80 years. Strictly speaking, then its construction was started. The work was brought to a very high degree of readiness, but unfortunately for all the Soviet Union collapsed, and the project was gradually abandoned. Conserved sites in the late 90s. Money for the development of a promising research direction of power has never been found.
