A Cold War-era underground bunker is situated in the center of Moscow, 65 meters below the surface. Well-preserved and still functioning now, the Bunker was a top-secret Soviet military facility occupying more than 7000 m2. The installation was classified Top Secret until 1995, several years after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The construction of the Bunker started in 1951 in response to the threat of nuclear war from the Soviet Union’s principal adversary, the United States of America. Built using the same equipment used for the Moscow Metro construction, the Bunker was accessed via two entrances in the Taganskaya Metro Station.
