The deepest borehole in the world is located in the west of the Murmansk region, ten kilometers from the city of Zapolyarny and very close to the Norwegian border.

The Soviet geological research project began in the midst of the Cold War, as a response to similar US exploration in the Pacific.

During the work of the Kola superdeep well, geologists managed to drill the earth’s crust for twelve kilometers.

A lot of scientific and technical discoveries were made, but in the mid-nineties, the work was stopped, and in 2008 all equipment was abandoned.

It is rumored that at some point the drilling rig began to vibrate unnaturally, as if someone were jerking for it from below.

When the well reached a mark of about 12,000 meters, scientific equipment recorded sounds resembling the cries and groans of thousands of martyrs emanating from the depths.

Drilling platform began to pursue the setbacks, and people began talking about the passage to the underworld.

I can not believe that under this cover there is a 12 km well.
