Sixth station of geotrail
Built during World War II
This nuclear fallout shelter was built during World War II and today serves as a tourist attraction and cultural space. A trip inside might give you chills, but if you want to experience these chills to the fullest, you can even spend the whole night inside. After an atomic attack, even several days and for free. You’ll find similar shelters under Petrov and on Kraví hora – those elevated places made from the oldest rocks in the city. Forgotten already? We mentioned them at the start of the trail – metabasalt, hardy volcanic rock. It’s not just chance; building nuclear fallout shelters in soft rock such as loess or clay probably wouldn’t be successful and the bunkers wouldn’t fulfil their function.
