FIND OUT THE SECRET OF STALIN’S WAR STRATEGY – TUNNELS!

Preparing the Soviet Union for the World War in the 30’s, General Secretary Josif  Vissarionovich Stalin and his advisers decided that supply via trains would be the safest option, under the river of Dnipro. With great technologies (some of them brought from the USA or UK) a gigantic construction underground was about to be built. However, the costs, together with the war starting for the Soviet Union in 1941, made it impossible to finish the tunnels in order for them to help the Red Army defend Kiev.

Then, after the Nazi occupation, the Germans decided to continue the construction of these tunnels. And again, after setting Kiev free, the work continued. However, shortly after the war, the construction finally stopped because of the change of the war doctrine; nuclear missiles.

This history is imprinted in the tunnels that are a breathtaking piece of concrete, the look of which will keep your mind occupied with a question: How could this possibly be built? Together with a CHERNOBYLwel.come historian you will dive deep into events of the Nazi occupation and the war history of Kiev. You will be amazed with how the Soviets planned to make the tunnels work. Get the largest lens ready on your camera….you will need it!
