JEWEL OF THE BALTIC
The Crimean peninsula is strategically important located in the Black Sea. It’s been a favorite place for militaries since centuries. Above all, Crimea allows to access the Mediterranean Sea. But Crimea offers not only a good military position, it is ideal for cave construction in general. Over the centuries, settlers and the generals have taken advantage of this over and over again. In particular the Soviet Union made considerable efforts to fortify the area after the Second World War.
In the documentary film we discover the underground secrets of Crimea and search for traces in the abandoned bunkers, caves and catacombs. Whether a hidden shipyard for nuclear submarines in the Balaklava bay, the Inkerman catacombs under the city of Sevastopol or an ancient cave town - together with archeologists and so-called diggers, explorers of the underground, we explore the underworld of Crimea, where experts help us to understand the context and the importance of buildings in the past and their possible use in the future.
