It was a city in its own right until 1957 when it was formally incorporated into the municipal borders of Sevastopol by the Soviet government. Today there are over 50 monuments in the town dedicated to the remembrance of military valour in past wars, including the Great Patriotic War, the Crimean War and the Russian Civil War.One of the monuments is an underground, formerly classified submarine base that was operational until 1993.Read more about this submarine base on MFS,with videoclip.
