This Bunker situated parallel to the working subway tunnel and even workers who work in the tunnels every night don’t know about this place. It have been under construction from 1987-1989 and after that government stopped to support this system by money and this object has stand abandoned for 29 years at the moment. Huge labirynth of tunnels has size of a city block and we spent 3 hours jst to too explore all tunnels.

In one place we found chalk draft of bunker map painted by one of workers on the wall. There is three major infrastructure blocks, biggest one has 12 meters high and must contain 4 train diesel engines.

Similar object in Moscow metro was repaired for visiting people and now you can visit Protected Command Bunker №42 with a guided tour, but seems like there is no fate for this place, because Ukraine is not in suspense of nuclear war at the moment so all this infrastructure is not in demand.

We are in hurry to tell all urbex lovers that this object highly secured by police and at the moment is no chance to get inside. But if you like places like this we can take you with us to Kiev Urban Exploration Tour, where you will visit one of abandoned nuclear bunkers in Kiev.
