It was a working mine starting in the 17th century until it became a cheese storage facility and a bomb shelter in 1932.

Photo of the Day: Underground Labyrinth 

Photographer note: These carpet patterns on the walls are not manmade, they are created by nature. These are sylvinite mines in the town of Berezniki. It is a huge underground labyrinth, located at a depth of 400m. The sylvinite ore, which is excavated here, is used for production of potassium fertilizers.
