WHAT YOU GET
This tour takes approximately 3,5 hours of your lifetime in active adventure:
EXPLORE WW2 KYIV HERITAGE!

In 1938, Stalin ordered the construction of two secret tunnels under the Dnieper River. More than 20 000 people were involved in the construction. Simultaneously with the construction of the tunnels, a fortified area of more than 100 underground bunkers and firing points was built. Together with an experienced explorer, you will get acquainted with Stalin military secrets below Kyiv and visit two of the largest underground WW2 bunkers!

First Place

A Secret Stalin Tunnel

Like most projects from the Soviet era, the “Stalinist tunnels” were no exception – the project was large, ambitious, complex and cost the Soviet Union a huge amount. For every day of work.

You will see the Soviet ambitions materialised in concrete. “Titul #6” – 600 meters long fully built exit of underground Stalin tunnel to the surface. 

Second place

The bunker #205 of lt. Vetrov

Bunker 205 “Small fortress” – was built of reinforced concrete, according to an individual project, by an underground method – “type of mine”.
During the general assault on Kiev, undertaken by German troops (August 6, 1941), the bunker garrison, under the command of Lieutenant Vetrov, fought heroically for 10 days in the encirclement, withstood and was unblocked by the counter-attack of the defenders of Kiev.

Great experience, nothing you can usually do!

The tour was really something special you usually can't do. It will take you a little bit out of your comfort zone but I promise you it is worth it :). People with claustrophobia should look for something else as described. But if you don't mind tight tunnels and you like to experience the extreme, go for it!

Excellent insight into the underground of Kiev

Wow, this trip was just amazing, Max is a great tour guide, really knows his stuff. Very helpful and very knowledgable. All in all a fab few hours exploring the depths of Kiev. I was thinking I was going to crawling on my hands and knees thankfully this wasn’t the case, more of a low stoop with some very low ceilings. As a tip do not go in your best clothes, wear sensible outfits that you don’t mind getting a bit mucky. Don’t forget to wear a belt to hold your gum boots up. I would highly recommend this to anybody who wants to have a break from the norm. 10/10

This was by far the best thing we did in Kiev on our journey to Chernobyl. I wish there were some longer tours with these people, even something more "hardcore".

Me and my friends had a great time during the tour. Our guide was really friendly and had a lot of interresting stories. The tour was one of the coolest things we did in Kiev. It’s an activity for the more adventurous people among us: crawling through narrow spaces, darkness,... I would not recommend it to children or people who are not in great condition.

Kiev Underground in three hours!

This experience was a break neck tour of subterranean kiev. Our guide (Max?) passionate, funny and well informed about the underground drainage tunnels of Kiev and the usage and protocols of the old Civil Defense Nuclear bunkers. We never felt unsafe and the provided gear meant we were only slightly dirty coming out! People over 6ft might struggle with the shorter ceiling passages that require you to bend over significantly. All in all, a great and informative tour in a challenging location!

Real Untouched History

This was simply great. The tunnels were a fun activity to explore, not too physical (a bit tougher to crouch-walk when you're 6' 4" but still easily done) as you went through them. Max's English was perfect and he was very knowledgeable about the Kyiv underground. The second aspect of the trip at the Cold War Bunker was superb. It was Untouched and real history surrounding you instead of in an exhibition behind a glass case. Highly recommend if you're visiting Kyiv.

My start began awfully as I was dropped to incorrect destination and as a result missed my tour. Vlad from Urbex put me touch with Max (tour guide) and rescheduled me to the following day's tour, and I am so thankful he did. It was an outstanding tour! Being under Kiev in those tunnels and the underground bunker were well worth it. I highly recommend to any that visit Kiev. Thank you again Vlad and Max. Max you done a great job as guide. 5 stars.

Different and excellent tour

We highly recommend this Kiev Urbex Tour to the drain tunnels and a bunker to everyone who wants to see different things than usually. Our guide Max was really good and told many special things about the tunnels and bunker. 3 hours tour went so fast, sneaking around was really fun and excitement! At tunnels you need special "rubbershoes", which they'll give you, and also gloves and torche are included. We would like to go more to the different local ug and abandoned places with them, please organize them more!

Tunnel + bunker/archive visit. Tunnel were interesting to see, but the real highlight was the building visited after that. Very interesting to see the almost untouched archives, storage, offices and command parts. Max is well informed and highly dedicated to his interest and goal. Were I to visit again, I would see if I could spec a custom, private tour with him
