We got there on a non-working day but they had a private group visiting and they agreed that we join them. The tour costed us about 300 Rubel per person but I'm not sure what's the regular price. Stalin never stayed in this bunker, nevertheless the place is definitely worth visiting. The tour was an excellent opportunity to learn more... More

The Stalin's Bunker is a very particular construction that had been secretly built in a very short period of time during the 2nd world war to house Stalin and the government in case of eventual German bombardments. Samara had to become the 2nd capital of the Soviet Union, and overtake all the capital city functions. Amazing, but the bunker is... More

Deep underground, hidden object fun. By visiting it, you will learn the history of its construction, operation during the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945.

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.

I was there once while studing at school. I think it's a must see place due to our history. It's really interesting how everything needed for life can be located so deep and far from the ground surface.

I believe the place is worth seeing but do not set your hopes too high as it is not very large or extremely rich in exhibits. Nevertheless, I found it quite impressive each of the 5 or 6 times I was there. The dictator is believed to have never visited the bunker but it was ready for him at any... More

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
