Our small group visited the bunker. The guide spoke in Russian and our tour leader translated. The guide was very patient with us. A really interesting place to visit. Able to sit in Stalins chair and have a close look in the war room. A valuable piece of ww2 history.

Great example of Stalins time architecture. 36 meters depth under the square. Big complex and a nice place to take photos especially inside! Very interesting experience! Strongly recommend to visit. Groups are formed several times a week.

This is really unique place and I have never seen anything like it. I has been there with the guided tour several years ago, and still under the impression - 37 meters under the ground manmade digged out by nights in a total secrecy for 9 month. However tour should be booked in advance as sometimes it is not open... More
