Awesome pictures! Thank you very much for your work!

So this means that Moscow is not really protected now? Or this site has been intentionally abandoned in 90's due to it's uselessness (or perhaps lack of funding)?

Moscow today has a very strong defense.
It was abandoned because unnecessary.

Radar has improved dramatically in the last 60 years. You used to need one of these every 20-30 miles but now you just need a station every 200 miles or so

What a cool place. Very interesting and informative pictures.

There's a Nike Hercules station preserved in the Golden Gate National Recreational Area just north of San Francisco in California which had a similar purpose. It is much smaller but the radar was mounted remotely on a nearby hill. The missiles were launched from the surface and seem to have been smaller.

I'm glad we never had to find out if any of this stuff worked!

Brilliant pictures. Some of these are so scary. I'd be terrified the doors were going to close behind me and never open again. Great stuff! :)

Wow, really spooky stuff. It looks like a moth of some kind from above.

Hi,

Great photos, the place really looks amazing. I love the videos too.

I'm heading to Moscow for a week in early January, and would really like to visit this place and take some of my own photos. Do you know if it's legal or safe to do so? I've read its open for people to look at, but I would like to hear from someone who's been there what the deal is - do you need permission? I'm from Australia and would likely be going there by myself.

Thanks very much!
