Bunker was one of the best parts of my trip to Moscow. I recommend this place to the people who are interested in soviet's history.You can have a discount for the tickets if you're a student.

Not an inexpensive place to visit but we had a good time and really enjoyed it. We did one of the English tours for our group and the guides were helpful and informative. They have a lot more options if you can speak Russian. It's...More

It looks like a subway station except you have to climb stairs. I'm thinking it ran by Russian mafia who bought the building and made a restaurant and a night club down there. Do you want to pay 50 dollars to see a night club?...More

This Bunker is a real soviet time experience. Ask for the elevator if you do not want to walk down and up the 18 floors.

So. Be Prepared! I had imagined a bunker but was not ready for this. There is a lift that can be used if you prove your medical needs are worthy of a lift. Its not publicised and only accessed by the tour guide asking. There...More
