Мне просто интересно каким еще образом город просто не провалится под землю ) Не знаю, может это я просто начитался баек про Неглинку в Москве и размывы? ))


Well, that rock has been pretty solid though. That's why it's structured in the catacombs like a maze, there's still enough rock overhead so that it creates "structure" so things don't fall in immediately.

Sounds like they've been flooding a lot in recent years, from what he's said, yeah. I'm sure in some places the local geology wouldn't allow for that.

I'm not familiar with Moscow, but yeah it'd be nice if more cities had that kinda stuff under them

The Paris catacombs have a history of collapse, that's what led to their current layout. Originally Paris underground was mostly room-and-pillar limestone quarries. Then as the city built up more and more on top, they started to cave in. The quarries were backfilled, leaving "inspection galleries" to make sure no more collapse was happening. The inspection tunnels are what make up the present day Paris catacombs.

Crypton had mentioned Moscow, and the catacombs in this thread are in Ukraine.

Likely different geologically than the Paris ones. Besides, who really thinks that building walls out of human remains is a sound architectural technique?
(tongue-in-cheek)

По моему в Москве не то, что катакомбы, а просто подземные сооружения еще с царских времен под всякие склады, и т.д.

Oh. My. God.

this thread is just awesome. It's like a total set of different stories (war, solitude, drugs, revolution, death, (and some fun) are all packed together in one (not quite so little) area in ukraine.

I personally am absolutely assured that these mines aren't for me. I would just totally freak out. I think I'll just stick to buildings. Not necessarily safer but way easier to find your way out.

Anyways - epic thread and ist keeps you thinking. on and on.




Love what you did with the place!!!

It looks amazing! Sad about the people who have died there though. I'd definitely want to be leaving a trail of something if I went in there! Great pics Eugene.

Wow... that's all I can really even say... it's like another planet down there... Makes me wish I learned Russian like my parents! or Ukranian!

Ukraine/Russia seems like a great "vacation" place for UE, think about it... Visit the catacombs, spend some days in Kiev, Hit up Chernobyl, and Then Moscow

Awesome place... awesome pics. But that picture of the dead girl lying facing the wall will haunt me forever... what a terrible, lonely way to die.
