Atomový kryt Praha


The Jalta Hotel was built on a place of a former residential building which was accidentally destroyed in 1945 by ally pilots. Construction of the Jalta Hotel including a secret nuclear fallout shelter started in 1953. The second communist president Antonín Zápotocký and his architect Antonín Tenzer built it in so called Stalin?s baroque. The bunker was kept in secret from everyone for many years. After the Velvet revolution, it went under control of the civil defence of the capital city of Prague. In 1997 the bunker was given to the hotel owner and at least the employees could take a look inside.
