I just discovered this great blog that features abandoned man-made creations.  Each post features a set of pictures and some history on the structure.  By far the coolest post so far, is on the abandoned secret Russian underground submarine base in the Ukraine. There is nothing cooler than a secret underground lair where you keep submarines!

You can read about the town and base here and see the pictures here. Also interesting is the abadoned Sea-Arama Marineworld, an animal/entertainment park near Peter’s current location.

  1. Wow this is a pretty cool I have to say, as for that abandoned Marine World is also quiet cool what happened to the animals, its really sad to read that this had to make way for a bigger and newer place. That submarine place is also a bit creepy I don’t think that this is a place that I would want to visit any time soon.
