The only one declassified military object in Russia, which is located at a depth of 65 meters under the ground in the center of Moscow, as an anti-nuclear bunker. It is better to use 54-meters deep stairway (which consists of 290 steps and 12 floors) to feel the depth of the bunker. The tour starts with a short film about Cold War. Later on, you will be guided to the bunker's exhibition hall about purpose of the bunker and its communication facilities. You will realize how the facility could protect from all the factors of atomic explosion and feel the seriousness of nuclear world war risk.
For adventurous visitors, especially thrill-seekers Moscow has a really unique museum-the Secret Soviet Bunker 42, also known as the Cold War Museum Moscow.A nondescript neoclassical building on a quiet street in the centre of the city looks very ordinary. This building was just a shell and served as an entry to the 7000 sq-meter space one of the main secret objects of the USSR. The underground complex was built here in the 1950s in connection with an early threat of nuclear war. It is a museum now.The Bunker 42 was fully equipped with everything needed for a nuclear attack: air recycling system, diesel generators, stocks of food, fuel, artesian wells to provide clean drinking water. Up to 30000 people could live and work there for 90 days without assistance from the outside world.After quite an impressive 20-minute film on the history of nuclear tests during Cold War the guides walk you through the underground blocks€, the secured tunnels where you might here raid sirens. The exhibits are very hands-on. Pictures in the Soviet military jackets as well as playing with weapons are also welcomed. You are awaited of mysterious entourage of the object which helps you to feel the atmosphere of the Cold War, environment of those days.
