This is a pricey place to visit, but if you are interested in the cold war or the Cuban missile crisis you will find this fascinating. The Bunker is 18 floors down (and 18 back up) but is well worth the effort. After your tour,...More

A place you should visit to feel how is to be and live underground (-18 floors). You will see the rooms where the Cuba Missiles were decided, and how a nuclear bomb is dropped. You will also get the experience of being in a nuclear...More

Took the English guided tour down 65 meters, 18 floor of steps under Moscow. Fascinating to see the set-up, equipment and also the video of Cold War with Russian perspective. Also actually turning the keys that could have caused so much carnage. Great experience and...More

Very dissapointing visit. Ticket is 2200rub, literally nothing interesting is there. They show "Stalin's office" - Stalin has never been there as the bunker was finished after his death. If you are desperate to go underground, just go to the metro, it is on the...More

It's not often you get the chance to go into a nuclear bunker and this was very enjoyable. We did the Declassified tour which was great. The guide was excellent and enthusiastic and explained the tour very well. You start by descending many stairs (although...More

First you need to know you walk down 18 floors, but you have to climb back up. It is pretty tough going on the way up. However, there is very small lift available, but they stress you need to be unable to walk to use...More
