Ústí nad Labem underground - Civil Defence Museum

Žižkova ulice
Ústí nad Labem, 400 01

WWII was entering its second half when the German government issued the command to build air raid shelters of first-class resistance. The construction of the one below the Větruše rocky elevation started in 1942, and 750 metres of underground passages were driven in the rock. In 1952-1956 it was rebuilt to serve as a 3rd-class (anti-radiation) civil defence shelter, and in 2012 converted into a Civil Defence Museum. It includes 500 m of passages open to the public, and 250 metres of the original galleries which were reopened after 70 years, but not all of them to the public.

It was converted into a Class III (atomic shelter) Civil Defence shelter in 1952-56.
