This is an interesting sight-seeing in Samara, city on the Volga, former city Kuibyshev, which was to be the temporary capital of the Soviet Union during the World War II. As the German army moved toward Moscow, it was decided to evacuate Stalin and foreign embassies in the center of the country. In 9 month 597 Moscow metro builders have... More

Although I was a bit sceptical to visit bunkers, for me it was a surprise. I am not very fond of Stalin, but both Lenin and Stalin were also part of my history. It would be very good to have an English leaflet to describe the situation when the bunker was bulit. With destroying monuments and historical buildings you cannot... More

I was in Samara a lot of times and never got there! So, if you want- try to get the open time and with group of 20 people (as museum workers told me today). Hope you will be more lucky but I do)

Stalin's bunker is quite hard to get into but I would say the struggle is worth it. We were taken on a tour where I learnt a lot, the staff were nice and although the tour was Russian, someone was kind enough to translate for me!

We arrived at the bunker at an awkward time (just before a tour with a Russian speaking guide was about to start), and we were unable to join a proper tour. Lena gave us a free quick tour of the bunker in English, and was very knowledgeable and accommodating. This place was a little hard to find, but very close... More

We had an absolutely fantastic tour of the bunker. Our guide was absolutely incredible. He really recreated the time period and was able to engage us in the idea of the bunker and the time period in a real way. It's not an obvious to find (Stalin's planners clearly did a great job), save for a sign or two around... More

Surprisingly I get invited to visit this bunker. Finally it was worth to make this excursion and get some details in history which I didn't know.

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
