Turisalu Missile Hangar
Abandoned Soviet base once stocked with short and medium range missiles pointed at western Europe.
Missile Hanger as seen from the outside.
A missile hangar in the former Soviet base in Türisalu, this site is one of the bases where the Soviet Union had set up short and medium range missiles with nuclear warheads pointed at western Europe. This site also hosted SA-5 anti-aircraft missiles.
Aside from that, very little is known about the missile hangar, which has been abandoned for years. There are no restaurants or places to stay anywhere in the area; it is completely isolated.
The site might be demolished in the coming years as there is a proposal to establish a wind farm in the area to generate huge amounts of renewable energy.

The base is about 25 kilometers west of Tallinn, between Naage and Keila Joa.
