Stalin's Bunker, Samara

(3.8/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
At Stalin's Bunker, sit in Stalin's chair and look around the office built as a copy of the one in the Moscow Kremlin. Stalin never used this bunker, which was hermetically sealed in 1942 and remained a secret from the citizens of Samara until 1991. The self-contained air-recycling system and power station were still in working order upon discovery. Today, the bunker houses an exhibit on World War II. Go to the deepest level, 37 m (121 ft) belowground, and see the leader's personal chamber, with imitations of windows and doors in the right places and the same kind of furniture. Move further into the meeting room of the government and the rooms of the guards, technical support staff, and storage on upper levels. Arrange a guided tour in advance. Using our world travel planner, Samara attractions like Stalin's Bunker can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Tourist guide-boy bunker themselves are contained in the order. But this sad story: builders, engineers, people for whom it was built.

  • I visited the bunker of Stalin as part of the Saturday excursion on Samara "city tour" from Sam travel agency "Samaraintur". Excursion in itself mostly takes place on the bus, in addition to the bunker of Stalin outside the bus tell about monument to Chapaev + drama, as well as the restaurant "the old apartment". In a bunker of Stalin passed a detailed excursion with the same guide "Samaryintur", which accompanied us the whole trip. I want to highlight the remarkable work of the Guide and evaluate the job perfectly well. The information was interesting, but the excursion was not even for a moment dull. I would skazla that it was the most exhilarating and amazing squeeze information out of the history of the second world war, Kuibyshev and related directly to the tank. This is a unique place and its so unusual atmosphere gave me a lasting impression. Read that to get into the bunker, but with this excursion is not a problem, its cost is 500 rubles (the entire three-hour city tour), in my opinion it is inexpensive and well worth the money spent. In the end, why people tend to leave everything to learn about the city for a weeklong trip, but often in the city live and are missing a lot of impressions. :-) And then this is the opportunity to become a guest of his city.

  • Very informative and interesting excursion. When visiting various halls of the Museum visitors learn interesting and unknown facts about building and assigning object. A lot of interesting things you can learn about the work of the strategic installations during the war.
