Stalin's Bunker, Samara

4.2
#1 of 23 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.

    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.

  • Bunker Of Stalin. Bomb shelter for evacuation of the USSR Government during World War II. In reality being used. The object passed to the EMERGENCIES MINISTRY. The most interesting to visit is the officer who led the tour. Very emotional. Feel the spirit of the era ...:)

  • We are very fortunate and we got in Saturday with a group of school trip, although on Saturday the Museum does not work. Great guide! Tells the exciting and entertaining, rather than presents dry information. Here you can touch and feel a little bit of history of our country! All advise.

  • The story of the heroic journey of our country during World War II but still at a depth of 37 meters, is really impressive. You begin to understand the extent of the works during the construction of this facility and still, strategic! Recommend to visit!
