Cold War and Nuclear Bunker Tour

Part of the daily fears for communist period citizens was the onslaught of nuclear war. People knew not everyone would survive a nuclear attack only some would. But who? This tour shows you the answer beneath the ground.

After the Cold War began near the end of the 1940s, the communist regime fell into a permanent paranoia of a nuclear attack from the capitalist west enemies. Precautions were taken in preparation of a possible nuclear war.

Learn the history of communism by hearing Cold War stories and famous spies and lies. Visit the biggest statue of Stalin ever built for memorable photographs. Other notable highlights include the former communist secret police STB headquarters and victim memorials. Learn about a real nuclear bunker from the 1950's, hidden 4 floors deep, built for 5000 people to survive a nuclear blast behind a 4-ton heavy door. Visit a Cold War Museum to see exhibits on nuclear war's history, military gear, and civil defense items.
