Until 1991 when the Soviet Union collapsed,  Balaklava (10 km away from Sevastopol – Black Sea Coast), the home of the underground submarine base, was one of the most secret towns in Russia, a restricted area for most of the people. It is said that most of its residents worked at the base and their relatives were not allowed to visit them without a good reason. 
















Despite the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the base remained operational after until 1993 when the decommissioning process started. Now the base, its cannel system and a small museum can be visited on guided tours.
