The Soviet Union was a huge power with the same large-scale projects in various fields. So it turned out that not all of these projects were implemented, but it also happened that the project already implemented And it seemed such a promising project, it turned out to be unnecessary and came down with time. In this review about 13 mysterious, frightening, and sometimes frankly eerie places in the territory of the former USSR.
Under the Dubna
In the forest near Dubna, that in Russia, can be found a huge metal hollow A ball about 18 meters in diameter. Find it yourself will be brackish, but the locals are always willing to tell how to get to the local "attractions". From a bird's eye view, a ball can be taken for a UFO, but in reality it is a dielectric cap for a parabolic space communication antenna. They transported the hood with helicopters, but during the transportation the cable broke. It was too problematic to take out the dome. It is made to a word, from fiberglass honeycomb structure. In it, any noise is amplified many times and a powerful echo is issued.
2. Khovrinskaya hospital
An eleven-story abandoned, unfinished hospital in Moscow, traditionally falls into all kinds of unofficial ratings of the most terrible places on the planet. To build a multidisciplinary hospital began in the 80's, it was designed for 1,300 beds. In five years, when all the buildings were already erected.It is ironic that over the next few decades the Khovriv hospital does not save, but cripples and takes lives.There have long been "registered" homeless people, drug addicts and thrill-seekers.The accidents on the territory of patients – Sad present.
3. Crimean nuclear power plant
Unfinished nuclear power plant, which is located near the city of Shchelkino. The first design calculations were made back in 1964. Construction began in 1975. It was assumed that this NPP will provide electricity to the entire peninsula of Crimea. It also had to become a starting point, for the further development of industry in these places. The first reactor was planned to be launched in 1989, the construction was going on without any deviations. However, the shaken economy of the USSR, together with the tragedy at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, put an end to the Crimean project. At that time, the station spent more than 500 million Soviet rubles, and in warehouses there were materials and equipment for another 250 million Soviet rubles. All this was plundered in the following years. It should be added that the Crimean nuclear power plant was included in the Guinness Book of Records as the most expensive power plant of this type.
4. Today this object can be visited by all comers. "Title =" Today everyone can attend this object. "Border = 0 vspace = 5>
In 2003, for the first time in 46 years of its existence, the Balaklava submarine base was first presented to the public. A tourist site, and once the base was one of the most secret objects of the Soviet Union.In a huge underground complex there were submarines. Aza was able to withstand the nuclear attack with powerful charges and was built in the event of an atomic war.The base consists of a water canal, a dry dock, numerous warehouses of various profiles and corps for servicemen, the object was closed in 1994 after the last submarine was taken from it. For many years the pride of the Soviet Union was simply stolen.
5. Object 221
On Sakhalin you can find Cape Aniva, where a unique atomic lighthouse. The lighthouse has a nine-storey building. Previously it could have up to 12 people on duty. Today, this once unique complex is completely looted by marauders and does not function.
7. The missile complex Dvina
The collapse of the Soviet Union "presented" to the former republics a huge arsenal of various weapons, including launching mines.So, under the Latvian capital, in the forests , One can find the once unique, secret launch complex "Dvina." It was built in 1964. It is a huge complex consisting of bunkers and start-up mines, most of which It is highly recommended to visit the complex because of the remnants of extremely toxic rocket fuel there.
8. Shop No. 8 of the Dagdizel plant
Near the city of Vokresensk, in the Moscow region, you can easily find a huge mine for the extraction of phosphate. The deposit is unique in Europe and the largest .The first developments here began in the 30s of the XX century. The types of multi-bucket excavators: tracked, rail and walking.Rail excavators had special equipment for the movement of rails.Since the 1990s, the mine is actually abandoned, the quarries are flooded with water, and expensive special machinery is simply rotting under the open sky.
10. Station of the study of the ionosphere
In Zmeev, a district city in the Kharkiv region of Ukraine, you can find a unique station of study Ionosphere. It was built almost before the very collapse of the USSR. It was a direct analogue of the American project "Harp", which is deployed in Alaska and has been successfully operating to this day. The Soviet complex consisted of several antenna fields and one giant parabolic antenna with a diameter of 25 meters. Unfortunately, after the collapse of the union, the station turned out to be of no use to anyone. Today, incredibly expensive scientific equipment is simply rotting or being stolen by stalkers and hunters for non-ferrous metals.
11. "The Northern Crown"
Originally, the hotel "North Crown" was called "Petrogradskaya." It was started in 1988 The hotel is famous not for its beauty, but for the huge number of accidents during construction, and did not add to the popularity and the fact that Metropolitan John died right after the heart attack, right after the building lighting.
12 The accelerator of elementary particles
In the USSR there could be a hadronic collider. A unique complex began to be built in the Moscow region, in Protvino in the late 80's. As it is not difficult to guess, the collapse of the USSR actually put an end to the scientific project. The 21-kilometer tunnel was already ready for the collider. The facility even began to deliver equipment. Work continued even after, but very sluggishly. Funding was literally enough only for lighting ill-fitting tunnels.
13. "Oil stones"
In Azerbaijan you can find a real sea city, it's about the so-called "oil stones." It appeared after Soviet geologists in the 1940s In the years of the 20th century, huge oil deposits were found in the Caspian Sea.Through the development of production, a whole city appeared on embankments and metal overpasses, power stations, hospitals, nine-storey houses and many There were about 200 platforms with residents on the water, the total kilometer of the streets was 350 km, but the cheap Siberian oil later turned into a local production and the city fell into decay.
