1. Moscow: Metro & Bunker-42 Guided Tour
Explore Moscow’s famous underground stations and the Bunker-42 Cold War Museum. Start with the best Moscow metro stations of the Soviet period, designed and built between 1934 and 1960. Compare different architectural styles and the beauty of the underground on this 30 to 50-minute tour. Next, visit Bunker-42, a once-secret military complex, bunker, and communication center with an area of 7,000 square meters at a depth of 65 meters. During the Cold War, approximately 600 people could live and work in the complex for 30 days without assistance from the outside world, thanks to stores of food and medicine, an air recycling system, and diesel generators. Workers would commute to the facility by way of the Taganskaya metro station, on special trains that ran at night. Even the entrance is hidden, disguised as an old building.
