In Primorsky Krai, on the shore of Pavlovsky Bay, there are ready-made scenery for a film about the post-apocalypse. This sinister labyrinth of huge tunnels dug into the coastal rock was supposed to be a shelter for submarines of the Pacific Fleet in the event of a nuclear war. However, when the work was almost completed, the construction was stopped.

The Pavlovskoye shelter is located on the territory of the operating base of nuclear submarines and is guarded by armed patrols. But adventurers are not deterred by this. A group of Vladivostok adventurers, who are engaged in exploring abandoned places in the Far East, managed to get into the tunnels. The guys took a series of colorful photos.

The sudden stop of work was probably caused by the fact that the Union was preparing to conclude a strategic arms reduction treaty with the United States. It was signed in July 1991.
