"It all started with the fact that recently Instagram literally filled up with cool pictures with beautiful ice from the forbidden object located on the territory of the Defense Ministry, more specifically, in the military area near Fokino, in Pavlovsk" - says Lucine... "The territory is supposedly guarded, and you can get there, but it threatens to be detained. I always knew about this, and I wanted to see this ice so much, but did not dare to go there, because I was afraid that I would be caught. And here! Looking at that. how people absolutely freely penetrate there, and upload whole heaps of photos, I thought, what am I, bald? I also want. "

“My friend in misfortune Tanyusha wrote to me the other day, -“ and went with my friends to Pavlovsk, it's beautiful there, I saw it on Instagram, we'll call someone else. ”I say, well let's go, especially since a week earlier there there were our friends and they themselves told how easily and quickly they went there. We also called Oleg, who had already been there in his previous military career. I invited everyone to take skates, go for a drive and take cool pictures.

Let's go for a drive. We arrive in Pavlovsk. We passed the turn we needed, buried ourselves in the command post, the military came out to us, we quietly drove off, said: "Sorry, we were wrong." We drove about 500 meters and a car was parked near a very ancient barrier with a long and hopelessly rusted sign. I want to note that the plate was so old that there was nothing but rust on it, which means that everything was really abandoned there. There was a very well-trodden footpath next to the rusty barrier. It can be seen that people go there in droves. We had a snack and went. "


"First we went out to the ice. It turned out that we were not alone there that day. There were at least 2 more companies, one in the back and the other in front. Their presence was a little enraged. I didn't manage to take the photos I would like, ice of dreams I offered the guys to take pictures first against the background of the same ice, but the guys did not support me. "Better at the end, first we'll see everything. Well, I waited until all the groups dumped, took some pictures of this beautiful ice and we went on for a walk. "


"We visited and climbed all the objects. Impressions: it was clear that once it was something very powerful and important, but today it is the most ordinary abandoned object. Everything is in ruins, the rooms still have furniture in a shaky state. chandeliers and what Soviet-era household items, heaps of technical documentation, all this is lying around and rotting. I was very impressed by the huge long corridor. As Oleg explained, it was a place for storing and repairing special equipment or something like a hangar. There were very interesting ice sculptures. In them we tried to make out different images. It was beautiful. Stalactites hung on the ceilings, like in caves, the smell there is already so musty and the air too ".



"Somewhere in the middle of the tunnel a new large group of 10 people came towards us." They greeted and dispersed, somewhere in the distance another small group wandered around.

After we had climbed everything, we were impressed, we decided to return to the ice, take pictures on skates, and, finally, ride back in the direction of the car and go home. Planned to be in town around 6pm. Everything was going pretty well until the show started! We went inside the hangar, sat down on the ice, began to put on skates and saw: a dozen identical green children running in the distance. We are so, oh, how pretty, they are closer to us, we look - and these are military "kids". The phrase from them: "Civilians! Do you know that you are on the territory of a military unit?" We answer: "Nooo!" I ask: "What have you come for us?" Their elder replies: "Well, yes! Come with us!" We put our heads down and stomp. We ask: "How long to go?", They, - "Long, long". Come on. " 



"It was half past two. They take us to the unit. Everything inside is very decent, clean, renovated, warm. We pass into a room without chairs, with three tables and a microwave. We stand and wait. They don't say anything, we are waiting for something." We were asked to behave appropriately, not to smoke and not to brawl, but we were not going to brawl. We laugh with all this situation, the mood is excellent! Adventure! Hurray! We are waiting for an hour, the second went, it is not so fun, it is not clear what was what. just that they called the police. We wait further, already a little depressed. And then - drum roll! The door opens and the very large group that we saw in the hangar with icicles is brought into the room. There are many of us, those noisy guys, with children and one very active lawyer, who very loudly rocked her license. So it immediately became good, warm and cheerful! Everyone was making noise, eating camp food, the military brought us all chairs, a kettle, allowed us to go to the toilet, smoke and breathe, there was nothing to breathe. It turned out that they decided to gather everyonethat day of sightseers. 

They admitted that such an outrage on the territory of their unit for the first time in history! Then they began to bring in the rest and we became more and more. As a result, there were about thirty of us. The police had already arrived by that time. One walks in, his eyes widen so much, he mutters something like "No shit!" and laughs. After him comes his partner and she starts laughing hysterics. We are led by two people for interrogation. All this was long, tedious, they were interviewed for 20 minutes at first, then they themselves spat and began to write to everyone the same template, collecting only personal data. And the point is to procrastinate if everyone says "I saw beautiful pictures on Instagram." They write and laugh themselves. By seven o'clock the latter were interviewed. As a result of the interrogation, each was issued a fine of 3 thousand rubles, but the piece of paper will first come to the police station at the place of residence, then they will call me, they will summon me for an interview and there they will already decide, pardon and warn, as the first administrative violation, or still pay. and whether in full or at a reduced rate. In general, I'm waiting for a call ... " 


"Whom they interviewed before, they were released earlier, they reached the cars on foot, because they managed to leave their children there unattended, they also had to guess." Someone from the crowd managed to reach someone and were just let go. "They saw from the window as they fled from there.The classic of the genre.All the others were promised after the interrogation to plant with a loaf and take them to the gate, and there already by their own motion.

Complete strangers, united by one misfortune, get a little closer and it was already extremely fun to go back. They even exchanged contacts with some.

In the process of waiting, she chatted a bit with the military and police on our adventure. One of the military, the most sociable and rather pleasant-looking man, says: "Well, did you need it? It cost 3 thousand?" They ruined our day for us! " I answer them: "Say thank you to Instagram and put the fence already, otherwise it's not clear." They laugh, we laugh. I told them that we did not have time to skate on the chic ice, which we regret very much. He says: "Haha, even did not have time to ride, horses! Come next Sunday." "Tariffs already know." "Come?" We politely refused. Around 8 evenings got into the car, satisfied with the excellent day spent, and drove home.

That's the whole truth about Pavlovsk! Think for yourself if it's worth it. Is it worth the beautiful ice in 3000 r. and a spoiled reputation. Whoever does not write in Instagram, you can not go there, even in spite of availability. Someone can be lucky, but we were not lucky. Unless, if you are bored with life and really want non-standard adventures, please! And I'll look for beautiful ice elsewhere "- summed up Lusine Ignatova."

Former "secret object No. 6." Anti-atomic shelter for submarines of the Pacific Fleet on the basis of submarines Pavlovsk. According to unconfirmed information, the beginning of the construction of the object - 60e years of the XX century. In the 80-ies, construction began to lose its pace, the shelter remained unfinished. Judging by the state, all concrete work was completed, it was necessary to make only interior decoration and fill the internal premises. In 1991, the first Treaty on the Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms was signed (according to the agreement, the USSR and the United States had to reduce their nuclear arsenals within 7 years). The Soviet side undertook to protect the passageways of underground structures located in the immediate vicinity of the mouth of the Ara (Kola Peninsula), the base of the Yagelnaya submarine (Kola Peninsula) and the base of the submarines Pavlovsk (Primorye Territory) for access to floating equipment of any displacement, from the plans for the construction of such passes during the validity period of the Treaty. Effective control over this has been ensured, and is still being provided, with the help of national technical means. The Soviet Party proceeded from the premise that the United States of America does not and will not build such underground structures during the period of the Treaty.
