This time we are going to visit three abandoned bomb shelters in Kiev. One if them is situated under a hotel, another one is hidden under a factory and the third one belonged to one of the ministries of Ukraine.
Let’s start with the factory. It’s almost non-working and the bomb shelter under it is large but empty.
In the photograph: its emergency exit.
One of the rusty doors of the shelter.
Now let’s get to the hotel bomb shelter. First of all, it is situated deep underground.
One of the flights leading into the shelter.
This hermetic door is divided into two parts for people to be able to open it if the lower part of the door gets blocked up with something. This kind of doors were popular in pre-war and early post-war years.
The city’s plan. They used these plans for theoretical civil defense exercises.
These old windowns and doors were left here after one of the renovations of the hotel.

Made in 1959.
By the way, there is electricity in some of the rooms of the shelter.
