Visit to underground Secret bunker-42 Museum of Cold War: You will have the opportunity to visit the historical museum complex which was the control center of the strategic air forces of the Red Army of Stalin during the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 . You will learn how the bunker was protected from all factors of nuclear weapons destruction, and realize how easily World War III could have started. You will learn how staff worked and lived at that period of time and see the amazing architecture of the legendary museum. There will also be a chance to see special effects that imitate a nuclear bomb explosion. During the fascinating trip you will discover how the facility was meant to serve as the communications headquarters in the event of a nuclear attack. As such, the building was just a shell, serving as an entryway to the 7000-sq-m space 60m underground. Now in private hands, the facility has been converted into a sort of a museum dedicated to the Cold War.
