The Basics

The only way to access Bunker-42 is by guided tour. When you arrive, you receive a "secret pass," which grants you access to the bunker. Once inside, explore the network of tunnels and rooms; see the old Command Post, generators, and storage rooms; watch a 20-minute film on nuclear testing in the Cold War; and admire the collection of Soviet-era memorabilia, including military uniforms and weapons.
