Geocache Description:

This cache is open for adoption. Anybody who wants to become the new owner of this cache may contact me at geocaching@catboot.de.

This cache will lead you to a lost place in Kiev/Obolon with some old remains from WWII.
Project 1 (or Object 1) was one of the top-secret projects of Stalin during WWII. Stalin wanted to connect the two banks of the Dnjepr in Kiev with secret tunnels to still be able to move soldiers and supplies in case if the bridges were bombed.

Over 12'000 workers worked on the construction site of the two tunnels, one in Obolon and one in the south of Kiev on Zhukov Island. The project was that secret that every worker who mentioned the word "tunnel" was endangered to be sent to a labor camp for 10 years. None of the workers were transferred to the front during the war to preserve secrecy.


When Germany invaded the Sovjet Union in 1941 only 10% of the project were accomplished. Nowadays we can witness some of the unfinished structures.

You may enter the structure at you own risk. Please be careful as you will encounter there lot of broken glass. It is a lost place with all the risks you may encounter at such a place. You find the building at N50°29.925' / E 030°31.465'

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ENTER THE SRUCTURE TO FIND THE CACHE!

The cache is located approx. 130m away from the big tunnel building. But close to the cache there are still some concrete structures with armoring irons standig out. So please be careful and watch after your children.

Please do not wrap the box in plastic bags! The box should be water-proof.

As a special reward for the FTF you find a 2GB-USB-Stick in the cache!
