Russian Consulate
In the original 1963 movie, James Bond visits the Russia Consulate with Kerim Bey - via the underground waterways. Bey takes Bond down to his cellar where the board a boat and sail off along an underwater canal, eventually coming to a chamber beneath the Russian consulate complete with periscope peeking the Russian's conference room!

They spy on a meeting of the leading Russian agents in Turkey, and Bey recognizes Bulgarian assassin Krilencu at the table. Bond also gets his first real glimpse of Romanova. He asks Bey for plans of the Russian Consulate and they head for a a gypsy settlement loyal to Bey where Bond can hide from the attentions of Krilencu.

London cables Bond telling him that Romanova's description of the device seems genuine and that he is to go ahead with the deal. He applies for a visa from the Russian Consulate, allowing his access to the building.

At a pre-arranged moment, Bey sets off an explosive charge in the chamber beneath the building, releasing tear gas throughout the Consulate. In the resulting chaos, Bond is able to find Romanova and make off with the decoder. After a nasty run-in with a pack of rats in the cellar, Bond and Romanova join Bey and make good their escape.
