200 years ago, Pechersk was a closed zone. Today, however, everything has changed. One day, during the construction of an elite skyscraper, an entrance was discovered that was bricked up. Specialists - historians and archaeologists - arrived at the site and had to dismantle the wall and pump out tons of water. After carefully examining the huge halls, the head of the expedition made a shocking statement: "This is an abandoned NKVD prison." But all the secrets of the discovery have not been revealed to this day... We invite you to visit the largest ominous dungeon in Pechersk!
