There are not many similar objects you can visit, especially if they are located in the centre of the city, 65 meters below the streets. The place has interesting history and for many years it was a secret place, perfectly masked by an ordinary building...More

We hoped to visit a Cold War museum as we couldn’t fit in the English tour, but it appears you can only visit as part of a tour. Long wasted trip!

We hear so much of the Cold War story from America so seeing the other side was interesting. Its 18 floors underground and there is only a very small life. Most people will have to walk down and then up the stairs

Simple fantastic, you can travel to cold war times, experience that period. But you have to down many floors/stairs and in the final you hat to go up stairs and it's not easy for a fat boy like me. But it was an incredible visit.
