Stalin's Bunker, Samara

4.1
#1 of 38 in Museums in Samara
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.

  • The entrance to the bunker is located in the heart of the city, near Samara academic drama theatre and the monument to Chapaev. Need to go to the yard of the building of the Samara State Institute of culture. In the summer, crowds of tourists visit the bunker with cruise ships. At other times of the year (especially in winter) of such crowds would not be-what to visit even better! We had a few people, we conducted a personal tour of a similar price. Although at that time the price was the same for any group of up to 25 people. Impressions are strong! Indeed, a unique structure!

  • Planning to visit the bunker we certainly were in anticipation of "mysterious initiation", of course nothing mysterious there wasn't. Participants felt the tourist "conveyor", the big passability, audible comments with parallel tours.

  • My grandmother lived in the yard, where there was a bunker during its construction. Nobody knew anything. Visit is certainly interesting. Monument of the era, after all. And in the summer there is a cool addition. Descent to 12 floors, stairs and there is an elevator though:) Serious money at such a depth and size of the room. In General, you can feel the spirit of the time.

  • Classic hopper arranged in accordance with military time, and its requirements. Of course perhaps a big drawback is that it does not work on weekends, it is my wish that the revised timetable for the main influx of tourists comes to Samara in Saturday and Sunday. Wonderful furniture. Good ventilation and lighting pleases the eye. It's a real place that you'll want to look at both the attraction of Samara. Especially for those who are flush for Stalin!

  • A unique building in the Centre of Samara, which until the beginning of the 1990s remained secret, and no one knew of its existence. Stalin's bunker consists of two mines technical floor and has a depth of 37 m. At that time, this was the height of twelve-storied House. As in Samara at home were mostly a maximum five-story bunker, may be considered the most "high" building in the city. Steep stairs lead down and when we pass the Central shaft turns on light-and-sound: red light and air security alert. The bottom Cabinet of Stalin in blue with a blue ceiling to give the feeling of space and air. The Cabinet stands work desk with direct dial telephone, a sofa and a separate WC. Nearby is Hall-long t-shaped table with phones. Very interesting excursion, gives a lot of information about how lived Samara (Kuibyshev at that time) during the war, when there were evacuated, most factories and 22 embassies. Thus Samara was spare capital at the time of the great patriotic war n.
