70+ year old bottles underground!?
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be on the other side? 👀 I’ve never been to Golden Mile Complex until I heard that it will undergo redevelopments soon. There was also an abandoned swimming pool that was closed off to the public, so the only way to get a glimpse of it was to fly my drone over! 🎶: @krane X @iamdnmo - Sakura

Keleriškiai Nuclear Warhead Storage Base or 477th ПРТБ (подвижная ремонтно-техническая база). USSR military object, Cold War era. It's funny how such facilities were being referred to as mobile technical bases. Nuclear weapons? Never heard of them... There are only 2 such places in Lithuania. This particular one had to serve 6 nuclear missile bases, while another one served 3. The main building of the base (picture 2) was the actual nuclear warhead storage, hiding inside 70m tall hill. It had to ensure the best possible conditions for the weapon - constant temperature and moisture, thus the building possessed it's own conditioner, multiple electricity generators and advanced ventilation system. Inside there was a massive technical and administration section, 4 large storage rooms, main hall. The vehicular entrance was secured by multiple iron-reinforced-concrete hermetic doors, with a diameter of approximately 1m each (picture 4). The personell double doors were smaller and bent (picture 3). The purpose of such doors was to withhold the explosion in case something went wrong. The base also contained 2 missile hangars, administration and technical/mechanical section with garages. Railway system was installed in the entire perimeter of the base for more efficient transportation of the weapon.The perimeter entrance was secured by checkpoint buildings - КПП (picture 10) and triple fence (motion sensors, electric current etc.). If you read my previous articles, you might remember that each missile base contained it's own warhead storage facility. However, it was smaller than this one and housed only limited amount of weapon (just enough for the first launch). In case the nuclear war began, such bases had to be supplied by the two warhead storage bases. . . . . . . . . . #urbexlithuania #militarytourism #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #military #history #nuclear #заброшенное #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #urbanphotography #adventure #urbanexplorer #radioactive #apleista #abandonedplaces #color #autumn #nature #travel #roadtrip #бункер #прогулка #поехали
I cannot express my excitement by words, so the pictures will do it for me. It was our first urbex trip since I've moved to Lithuania. It wasn't planned at all. We were just driving past an autumn-painted park and noticed a manor house with no windows. We ended up in the attic, which happened to be a former civilian anti-radiation equipment storage facility. Quite an unexpected thing to find. Cold War era left a large footprint in Lithuanian history with lots of abandoned facilities such as this one, which have no purpose today whatsoever. But back in the day they served as a sweet illusion of "safety" in case a nuclear war/disaster strikes the country. This scenario was as real as the air we breathe. . . . . . . . . . . #urbexlithuania #militarytourism #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #military #history #nuclear #заброшенное #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #secret #bunker #adventure #urbanexplorer #abandonedplaces #apleista #gasmask #coldwar #autumn #travel #roadtrip #урбан #прогулка #поехали
