Once there was a real women's prison, which contained criminals, recidivists, murderers, the most dangerous women in the country. Due to this, a shelter was created here, because according to the law of that time, an air-raid shelter was to be adjacent to all places with a large crowd of people.

At first glance, an inconspicuous, small and rusty garage. After all, secrecy means to hide the object from curious looks.

It is necessary to open the door as you see an incredible spectacle in front of you, like a door closet in Narnia (outside is a small one, inside a large one), even a car can not fit into this garage, but in fact a staircase leading to nowhere opens in front of you ...

In fact, the stairs lead to a depth of 25 meters! Where was the underground anti-nuclear shelter, designed for 1,200 people.

Over time, the shelter was abandoned, at times collapsed and disappeared.
