The complex was adopted in 1980, after which four units were placed on the Barents Sea coast in the Bay Small Snowball. And in 1995, the division was disbanded, the installation was thrown. But the sea, the deep blue sea, cold sedoe sea, endless, harsh and gentle still waves rolls on the sandy beach and rock cliffs.
from the bay into the sea is issued Cape Vyevnavolok on which the lighthouse. Now it automatically, equipped in the Norwegian money, but before the lighthouse was served, was standing next to a house of light keeper, observation post overseas, the radio antenna. However, the houses still stand, but are abandoned and empty.
Inside the remains of the former life - rusty diesel generator, stove, winch.

Cars in a terrible state, but the majority still stands on its own, mind you not run-flat, Op.
We'll get closer and look at what's left.
