Seemingly a traditional Bosnian house near Konjic is actually the entrance of one of the biggest Cold War secrets – Tito’s nuclear bunker, this is how the BBC’s report on the biggest investment of the former Yugoslavia begins.
Tito’s bunker hidden under Mount Zlatar near Konjic in central Bosnia and Herzegovina has been kept secret for decades, and is now open to the public and is one of the most unusual art galleries in the world.
4.6 billion dollars were invested in the construction of the bunker and was built between 1952 and 1979 with the main goal of protecting then-president Tito, his wife and 350 of his closest associates in the event of a nuclear disaster, which then feared the whole world.
The bunker was kept secret until 1992 when it was opened to the public by the Bosnian Army.
Since being open to the public, it has become one of the most popular destinations not only for tourists, but above all for lovers of the recent Cold War history, according to the BBC’s report.
