the volunteers restoring these bunkers have done a great job and it simulates as closely as possible the reality for which these structures were built for. they are friendly and helpful, very knowledgeable trying to explain any question one might have.

I visited the bunker on a tour with the excellent Authentic Slovakia. It wasn't meant to be open that day but my guide Brano spoke to the museum guys doing repairs and they put the generator on and let us in for a quick look....More
