This Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm you have the opportunity to inspect the intricate labyrinth of corridors and small rooms as well as the technical backgrounds of the Folimanka bunker. 

This shelter was built during the Cold War as a refuge for civilians in case of threat. In addition to tours of the bunker itself, there’s an exhibition featuring photos of other civilian bunkers located throughout Prague.

Folimanka bunker is definitely worth seeing as it was kept secret for the local inhabitants for decades and it was not accessible. Visitors can browse through the vast labyrinth of the bunker. 

It could hold 1,300 people, and its stocks could allow people to survive for up to 72 hours.  The bunker is in excellent technical condition and could serve its original purpose immediately in case of emergency.  

The shelter was built in the late 50s and 60s of the last century in "Pod Karlovem" street. It has armored door, private wells, a private functional unit with an output of 30 kW, the lighting and heating. 

The bunker was made accessible to the public in September 2014.
