Cruising through the 32 islands that make up the Kuril chain which stretches

across the Bering Sea between Japan and Russia, travellers have the

opportunity to view many species of rare birds and explore historical sites

steeped in intrigue.

 

SIMUSHIR ISLAND

 

The abandoned Soviet naval base on Simushir Island. The rectangular barren

buildings characteristic of that era of Soviet architecture come into view

as you land in Broutana Bay - only accessible by zodiac from a ship. It's a

surreal scene of grey concrete juxtaposed against delicate yellow and purple

orchids and buttercups.

 

During the Cold War, it is believed this concealed harbour was a secret

hiding place for fighter ships and submarines, supporting around 5,000

residents in its hey day between 1987 and 1994.

 

The eerie remains of the buildings are a reminder of the time when nuclear

war was high on the agenda of the superpowers.
