Civil Defence Shelter

Historic Site in Olomouc

Olomouc is all about centuries-old history, but this more-recent relic of the Cold War is also worth exploring on a guided tour. The shelter was built between 1953 and 1956 and was designed to keep a lucky few protected from the ravages of a chemical or nuclear strike. Book tours at the Olomouc Information Centre, which is also where they start.
