What you'll do

You won't get this experience in any museum, it is authentic and doesn't compare to any built-for-the-public place. It is as real as a Soviet Post-WWII bunker can get. During this Experience, you will explore the recently declassified facility - the Bunker of the Cold War period. It was built at a depth of 50 meters just a year before the Cuban missile crisis. The place is super authentic. A local guide - who is a historian - will explain you the logic behind the construction of bunkers in the Soviet Union and he will share some stories that will surprise you. And then you are free to go deeper underground! No passenger elevators, just myriads of stairs - come prepared! Inside the Bunker, you will explore dark tunnels of the Underground facility. You will see an active 10-tonne door that could protect the bunker against the shock wave of a nuclear strike as well as many other hermetic doors that separate parts of the object. On 50 meters deep you will research the areas around, technical rooms, storage facilities, the appendix, connected with metro and many more. It is an interactive experience so you can touch, push and pull all switches around. Be prepared for unexpected! On your way back, after working out 43 meters of stairs back to the surface, you can relax, take your breath and enjoy some coffee. Then you can take a taxi or walk back to the metro on your own.

Where you'll be

This is a once in a lifetime experience. It is not an amusement park but a truly historical place. An authentic, unique experience and thought-provoking. A real treat to see some of this Soviet history. This is a unique bunker, declassified and opened just recently. It has been never renovated, so you'll see it as it was built in the 1950s-early 1960s. This place still has a feel of a real thing and this is not pop music, this is Rammstein.
