I visited the bunker during the World Cup, so it was bustling with tourist. There is a small courtyard in front of a tiny door, where the visitors line up, but there´s no sign to warn you that first, you should go to the corner...More

Being a historical city this place is a must visit in samara. Unlike other places in Russia english tour guide was included and she was. Very informative. U get the feeling to be inside a real bunker once u go inside it.

I visited this place during the world cup 2018. This place had a guide who took us through the bunker and explained the history with a lot of passion. Considering the story of building this bunker, this is a must visit for the history lovers.

English translator was poor, but don't think the Russian guide was particularly strong either. Takes about 30-40 minutes. A lot of stairs to negotiate though we did a see a small slow elevator in operation. No one knows it Stalin ever actually entered this bunker...More

We were told it was really expensive (3000r) and that you need your own tour guide. We turned up, paid 250r and was treated to a group tour - about 20 of us. It's 12 stores down so quite a few steps, but you can...More

They official position is they only take people on city tour. However, we did manage just to join the group without difficulty. It cannot be guaranteed to work every time!

unfortunately the tours are only in russian. you could download some app from the app store which would help but many of the information cards once you're in the bunker are in English and self explanatory :)!
