Since my childhood i was mesmerised by military equipment and technology! Finding a place like this it was a dream come true!
Along many airplanes, tanks, missiles, guns and other military equipment you can see here one of the biggest diesel-electric submarine in the world, B-307.
To find such a steel monster sleeping in this big complex was a really nice thing to see. Not so many people get the chance to see a live military submarine, especially on ground. Submarine B-307, Tango class, 91m long and 2000t weight is one of the biggest diesel engine submarines ever built found is rest in Sakharov Technical Museum after a one year and half trip on ground. Very interesting the story about how this huge submarine after a 2246km long trip on water from Kronstadt, near Sank Petersburg found its place in Sakharov Technical Museum in Togliatti. From Togliatti docks up to actual location i took about one year and a half for moving the steel beast without dissembling it, special road it was made by local authorities for this special operation.
The submarine can be visited also inside but only with a guide and only at certain times...you can check the schedule before paying a visit.
This time i didn't had got the chance to visit inside but next time i will go just for this visit.
Also you can see live tanks like T-34, T-55, T-80, IS-3, ISU-152, Katyusha Rocket Launcher and many more.
Planes like: MIG-31, MIG-29, Sukhoi SU-24, TU-16 , YAK-27P and many more.
Helicopters: MiL-26, MiL-24, MiL-6 and many more.
Audioguide in english is available and is a must for the informations you get about each vehicle.
If you visit Togliatti and you have a passion for technology and army this is a must see place!
