Abandoned Soviet Nuclear Rocket Launch Silos

Posted on 31 May 2010 Crni

We are all aware of the fact that Cold War Soviet Union doesn’t exist anymore. But, once, it was real military machine which was eating the most of the tax income of all Soviet Union states. Military was on the very first place and everything other came after that. We can see that North Korea has very similar military-based politic today.

Soviet Union and the whole Cold War thing is pretty cold now (although there are some sparkles in relations between Russia and USA) but the trails of this pointless race in developing of weapons and military still remains.

The Dvina Complex in Lambarte, Latvia is one of numerous abandoned military complexes which cost a lot of money in time they were built. This complex contains four underground launch silos which were once full of rockets with nuclear heads. Here you can see a few of photos which are showing how this place which cost millions of dollars look now.
