5 most interesting bunkers in Russia

1. Stalin's bunker in Samara.

Declassified only in 1990, this bunker began to be built in the fall of 1941 during the Great Patriotic War. The secret facility, located under the modern Academy of Culture and Arts (which previously housed the regional committee of the CPSU), was built primarily for the evacuation of Stalin in case of an emergency.

2. Object 825 GTS in Crimea.

After the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Soviet Union began building a submarine base at Balaklava Bay in 1953. The project was completed only eight years later, in 1961, but it was worth the wait: nine small or seven medium-sized submarines, as well as about a thousand people, could take shelter from a nuclear strike.

3. Bunker 703 of the USSR Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Moscow.

At first glance, this top-secret object, declassified only in 2018, looks like an inconspicuous gray building on the back streets of Moscow, between a kindergarten and a church. In the late 1940s, a circular line of the Moscow Metro was built on the site of the future bunker. When the line went into operation, various passages and technical tunnels remained, which were used as the basis for the bunker, which was completed by 1961.

4. Bunker 42.

The construction of a command post of the General Staff of the Air Force in case of a nuclear strike began in the Tagansky district of Moscow in 1947 by the order of Stalin. The object was completed only in 1956 when Stalin was already dead. However, it was an important project, consisting of an 18-story vertical shaft and a spacious 7,000 sq.

5. Stalin's bunker in Moscow.

The command post consists of a domed conference hall, a small office, and a Georgian-style dining room and is connected to the Kremlin by a 17-kilometer underground road. Stalin himself was in the bunker only twice - to inspect the site in 1941 and in late November - early December of the same year to direct operations during the Battle of Moscow.
