    I thought I'd throw up something a bit different this time. As far as I know this is the only urban explorer/digger pub in existence. It's essentially a pub dedicated to the community of diggers and the hobby itself in Ukraine. It was here that I agreed to meet up with Bottlehunter and several more from the awesome Lviv community of explorers who would show me around some of the best underground spots in the city. I had no idea this kind of place even existed until I walked through the front door so it was an awesome surprise.

    The pub itself is decorated to the hilt with different artefacts from old bunkers and military installations. One room contains a red brick vaulted ceiling built to match the older basements found all over the city, another room has a huge wall size painting of the underground Poltva river which runs beneath the centre of the city and another has the walls decorated with old Soviet informational leaflets from the Cold War. Also, the lighting system has been hooked up to some old Soviet radio tuners. What makes the pub even more awesome is that it serves mainly local Ukrainian craft beers. It's probably one of the coolest pubs I've been in so I thought it'd be worth sharing here.

    I'm not really sure where this should go as it's not really a report so I thought I'd throw it in here. Feel free to move as appropriate!

    Cheers lads

    I wasn't sure so I did some quick research there by typing in the cyrillic letters written across the top of it into Google. It seems to be the schematics for a dosimeter. There's a similar one here halfway down this page: http://funfix.ru/post/16506/

    Whether it was just a board that showed the schematics or whether it had any sort of functional use for measuring radiation I'm not too sure. I probably should have asked when I was over there. There's a bit more reading here as well if you're bored! http://cxem.net/dozimetr/3-3.php

    The smaller boxes with the green lights beneath them looked like some sort of communication device. They had their frequency dials repurposed into dimmer switches for the lights which were above each table.
