Abandoned Soviet Nuclear Rocket Launch Silos

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.

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.
