10-Z Bunker Brno, Brno

10-Z Bunker Brno, Brno

10-Z Bunker Brno was an air-raid shelter built during World War II. It was used for citizens who needed a safe space to stay away from targets from the United States and the Soviet Union.

After World War II ended, 10-Z Bunker Brno found a new purpose. It served as a wholesale wine store that sold wine to restaurants and clubs. It was then confiscated by the Communist regime in 1948 and repurposed into a nuclear shelter that could hold up to 500 people.

10-Z Bunker Brno opened to the public as a tourist attraction in 2016. Visitors can take a guided or unguided tour where they will see videos about the technical aspects of the shelter and the people connected to this place.

Night tours are available for those who prefer a more eerie environment. Among the exhibits, visitors will see the doors to the death cells from the former Brno prison. Many are inscribed with messages left by those who were awaiting execution.

The Bunker is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11:30 AM to 6:15 PM.
