Step inside a nuclear fallout shelter at Military History Museum of Fortifications Balaklava Underground Museum Complex, 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.

  • Were in September 2019. The museum is being restored, new exhibits are emerging. I recommend taking a walking tour with tour guides in love with the museum. At the end of the tour the hall with equipment and uniforms is interesting, you can also go to a good gift shop at the end. From the bay in Balaklava there are boats to different ends of Sevastopol. If you arrive early, you can park without any problems.

  • They took a boat trip. The structure is quite impressive - for its creation blew up a rock. Turns out Balaclava was a closed city because of this station.
