Real Life Soviet Atlantis: Underwater Museum In Ukraine

SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj

WELCOME to the real-life Soviet Atlantis, where algae-covered busts of Lenin loom up from the depths of the seabed. The underwater museum at Cape Tarkhankut, the western point of the Crimean peninsula, was created by diver Vladimir Borumensky. After the fall of the Soviet Union, thousands of busts of former Communist figureheads were thrown out, so Vladimir created an "Alley of Leaders" featuring the likes of Lenin, Stalin and Karl Marx. The museum has expanded over the last 20 years, and now includes more than 50 sculptures, including replicas of London's Tower Bridge, the Eiffel Tower, and a real-life wind turbine. These pictures were taken by Russian photographer Andrey Nekrasov in the Black Sea in Crimea, Ukraine.
