Hidden Stalin Bunkers and Soviet Secrets You Didn't Know About


The process has begun - journalists picked up the baton from archaeologists. It turned out that in the abandoned bunkers (precisely those that cannot be found on the map), nuclear weapons were stored. Disguise played a role - in fact, the bunkers were not really discovered and studied for a long time, and turned into abandoned buildings. Now, a careful study of them gives an understanding of some specifics of military strategy in the historical period of the Cold War.

In the 60’s of the last century, underground bunkers were built in Poland. Scientists noticed that in Soviet documents such structures were called communication centers. In later documents, references to them are generally gone.

As a result of the Warsaw Pact (after the collapse of the Union), the territories where the bunkers were located have been discovered and succumbed to plunder. Seriously Polish scientists began to study the topic after decades. Three bunkers were investigated (near the cities of Podborsko, Brzezni and Colony), declassified archives, as well as satellite images of the Central Intelligence Directorate of the Union, were studied.

What did scientists study?

It was agreed that the bunkers were uniquely designed to store tactical warheads aimed towards Europe.

Bunkers are field fortifications, checkpoints, strongholds and observation posts, many trenches and buildings. In fact, all objects are typical.

Zoning as in action films: the outer zone, the middle and the main - a zone with limited access. Logically, it was there that the weapons were stored, but in order to know for sure, studies were planned using instruments that measure the background radiation. However, radiation pollution was never found, which disproves the main version of scientists about weapons.

Excursion inside the bunker. Let's go

  • The entrance is masked: for example, plywood painted in camouflage. An attentive viewer will immediately discover the ventilation outlets behind the house. The weight of the front door is 3 tons. In fact, it can protect against a serious shock wave and in order to get inside, a communication system was needed (passwords were used).

  • Behind the second door is a second, hermetic door to maintain high pressure. This could protect against the penetration of toxic substances.

  • All cables are protected by additional sheaths. Inside the bunker was supposed to be a device to monitor the status of the lines.

  • A hardware room with a switch and a channel frequency distribution system was used to collect information from the outside. To communicate with subscribers anywhere in the Union, a completely sound protected room has been used. According to researchers, mainly women worked on the switch for long-distance communications.

  • The watch station was located separately. In the bunker there was a food block with several freezers, but in peacetime they used food transfer from the nearest military garrison to feed its workers.

  • The lower floor of the structure was provided for autonomous systems with the possibility of functioning without power for several weeks.

  • Ventilation was carried out using 16 systems, each of which had to be serviced (as to clean, cool or moisten the air). Charcoal filters worked for safety: for ventilation in case of attempts to use toxic substances. The entire system was controlled by an operator with instructions for each mode of operation of the hopper.

  • There were several pumping stations in the bunker. The blue water supply system delivered water for drinking and household needs, and the red - the fire extinguishing system. In addition to water storage tanks, the bunker could have up to several of its own artesian wells.

Energy powered bunker

A diesel generator provided power, in addition, there was a room with several additional generators, which could provide power to the nearest military town, and even a civilian settlement.
