Whenever I look at these photographs I can’t help but laugh because they’re so random. Brandon begged me to take a tour of a nuclear bunker in Prague and I obviously obliged. Hanging out in a smelly bunker complete with fun graffiti and stuff to mess with? Sign me up!
The tour we found was a Communism and nuclear bunker tour so we started in the city and our guide walked us around. Then we hopped on public transportation and made our way to the bunker — part of it had been transformed into a bar. I’m not kidding.
This 1950’s bunker was around four floors deep and extremely creepy. The doors and walls were thick and it almost felt like we would disappear underground forever. The guide showed us gas masks, atomic suits, and different weapons. I got to hold a grenade and a gun but my husband won’t allow me to post the photo in a blog post. I guess he wants me to be able to get a job after this housewife stint.
This blast map showed the center of impact and the nuclear fallout that would result after an attack. It would be terrifying to constantly worry about a nuclear attack while trying to live your life.
So, tell me. Would you traipse around a nuclear bunker?
