Stalin's Bunker, Samara
(3.8/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • I advise you to visit this place. The guides will tell a lot from our little known history. Especially impressed that such a unique structure can be built in absolute secrecy in the middle of a big city.
