Balaklava Submarine Base

The base for submarines had been built about 1961 in the middle of the mountain. It became abandoned in 1995 and during the period since the end of 1950s till the middle of 1990s, Balaklava was one of the top secret areas in the Soviet Union (and was accordingly closed for visiting, even concerning family members). Then the decommissioning process started, and in 2003 a museum of Submarines was opened to the public for guided tours. You can see the armory and the channel system, but the part of the base related to repair of torpedoes and equipment base remain closed for the public yet.
