This is an amazing place, really atmospheric and unique. It seems you are part of a spy/ 007 movie. We enjoyed walking along the long underground tunnels. It is quite impressive so put the place in context and keep in mind it was out of reach for anybody until very recently. Nothing is in English so you dont have chance to read much, and we arrive 40 min before clousure (5 pm) so we hurried up but it was a lot of fun! We got there from Sevastopol by public transport. Minibus 20 or 12 left us in a place called km5. It was the last stop and despite nobody speaking English we could communicate enough saying km and showing 5 fingers at the bus stop. In km5 there is a huge market and minibus 9 departs from there to Balaklava. The bus stop is next to where all the electric cars stop. In Balaclava we stopped before the end as there is a closer stop to the submarine base. Otherwhise you can walk from the harbour or take a boat to cross it. The closest bus stop is called something like "obolon" like the beer. People in the bus indicated us where to stop (and they didnt speak English and we didnt speak Russian but they are generally very helpful). When you stop take the street to your right and walk to the end. You will reach the place soon.
