They say Samara is alternative capital of Russian Federation so far. Giant network of underground facilities, secret subway lines and tunnels were built during the World War. Stalin’s bunker is the one of those objects declassified not long ago. In 1991 when Kuibyshev was renamed into Samara there was a building opened to public which was known only by a few people through the half of century. Nowadays Stalin’s bunker, the deepest building of World War II is very popular among foreign tourists while visiting Samara. Construction of a secret bunker began in the end of February 1942. By this time Kuibyshev was an alternative capital of Soviet Union where Soviet government, central committee of the all-Union Communist Party and 22 foreign missions were evacuated from Moscow. If Moscow had been taken the enemy war management would have been performed from Volga side, most probably from the bunker. Stalin’s bunker is the most impressive of declassified bunkers. Its depth is 37 meters that is the height of 12-storey building. For example, the depth of Hitler’s bunker is 16 meters, Churchill’s bunker in London is only 2-storey in depth, and Roosevelt’s is also the same. It had no equal constructions especially in such time limits. The giant “hole” was dug out in less than 9 months. There was an independent system of air renewal and its own power station in the bunker. Until now it’s still hermetically sealed and optimized for the whole self-independence for 5 days. The secret underground is a multistory structure supplied with elevators. On the ground floor there is a conference room for 115 persons. Next to it there is a rest room only for Stalin. On upper levels there are security rooms, storages, technical support services. The bunker could absorb a direct hit of the biggest aviation bomb those times, because over this construction there is a mass concrete 3 meters in depth, sand-stemming and one more meter of concrete.
