Over here is a neat site. It seems the official photographer of the Moscow subway has a bunch of photos of underground stuff in Moscow. I regret there are no captions. Still some neat stuff.

Following links for the cited site leads to other interesting sights of sites around Moscow. Well worth your time.

Ah yes, the joys of industrial architecture... Visited a museum based in Prague's first sewage treatment facility, and it was impressive, a beautiful old building made of bricks, with truly cathedral-like features...

Yeah, but is there a monorail, and golf carts, and sharks with frickin' lasers on their heads?

What range was the cited site sighted in for? Was the battle site zero cited for the sight? Was the cited site sighted in with other sites cited?

I'm getting confused...

Those photos look like great locations for sci-fi movies.

Looks like a natural cave that was discovered tangential to the subway tunnels.

So you can get down to the lower levels without using a rope or falling?


I suspect that they found the natural caves and used them instead of digging new passages through the bedrock. Path of least resistance you know. It makes sense for service tunnels especially.
