This is an underground fortress which is only open on Saturday afternoon during the spring and summer. It will take you back to the cold war, which wasn't that long ago. Modern underground complex with hospital, company kitchen, dinning and sleeping areas, and lots of long tunnels and large cannons, radio room, weapons magazine . Kids love it.
