See models of weapons and communications equipment of the USSR Armed Forces. The highlights of the tour are a simulated missile launching and a bomb detonation. Watch the short film for insight into the Cold War. Note that you need to go down, and back up, 18 floors of steps.

    The positive points of the place are the interesting thing may be for fans and scholars of the cold war, the visit to a real bunker and a friendly guide who accompanies all the way. There are only visitors in Russian and English. The negative points is the excessive price, very 'screening' aspects of the route and the atmosphere of entry and management of the place.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
