Stalin Defence Line Tour
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!
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.
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.
