The Soviet ‘Dagdiesel’ plant has stood abandoned and alone in the Caspian Sea since 1966 when tests on torpedoes and other naval weapons at the facility ceased. The fortress was commissioned in 1939 and had all the mod cons for the period, including comfortable quarters, parquet floors, a hotel, a library and even a basketball court. Standing on a reinforced concrete foundation 2.7 kilometres (1.67 miles) off the coast, the fortress covers an area of 5,200 square metres. In a feat of engineering, the underwater section, also known as the “Array,” was built by the coast and floated to the construction site before being sunk. Thanks to its solid construction, the facility is still standing strong today and is a hotspot for thrill seekers looking for an adventure back in time.
