musköbasen

Via the always engrossing Things Magazine, we learn that the Swedish navy, amid renewed tensions over Russian incursions, is re-staging a mothballed sea fortress hewn into the fjords outside of Stockholm. Fully operational in 1969 after nearly two decades of work, the base at Muskö boasts cavernous habours for destroyers, a subterranean hospital and an extensive network of underground roads, though after years of disuse, it will take some rehabilitative measures to bring the installation back up to code.
