Taking place well outside the city centre, this former Russian Military base was deserted a little over 10 years ago when the Russian army withdrew. It now plays host to a truly memorable one of a kind experience.
It still has all facilities and equipment which only add to this haunting and unique activity. Upon arrival “prisoners” undergo traditional prisoner protocol, such as search, medical assessment, you will also get photographed for the purposes of your prisoner registration card (These are mailed after the event, they really are a great souvenir) and finally interrogated.
The activity is operated by some of the original staff and does involve a few minor ‘punishments’ like doing push-ups, jogging wearing gas masks, some shouting and pushing around. This is not an activity for the faint-hearted. On completion of your registration, the group are either locked up to occupy one of the original jail cells, or left open to wander about with some lager. Optional 3am drill is available (no really!).
The group will also use the original canteen with an authentic Russian prisoners menu.
In the morning the group is taken back to hotel. This is definitely a night to remember.
