Discover Old Military Complex aka JOSIP BROZ TITO’S BUNKER
Tito’s Bunker is the Best Kept Secret of SFR Yugoslavia. It had the code name “Istanbul” and later nicknames “Army’s Reserve Command”, “Atomic War Command” and “Tito’s bunker”. It was built in complete secrecy over the course of 26 years – between 1953 and 1979. Find out the secrets of one of the most intriguing figures of the old communist bloc. Take the tour through this underground nuclear bunker in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Ride through interesting suburbs of Sarajevo will take us first to town Konjic. We will visit the old town and see the Old Bridge, one of the most precious heritages from Ottoman period.
Our next stop is 6500 square meter Tito’s bunker, officially know as ARK (Atomska Ratna Komanda, Atomic War Command) which was one of the most expensive structures in the former Yugoslavia and well kept secret for decades. The whole complex is built in a horseshoe shape, resembling a maze with offices, conference rooms, dorms and of course, Tito’s private rooms. It was all supported by two kitchens and a supply of oil, food. and water that could sustain the bunker for up to six months. In the event of a nuclear strike, the bunker could accommodate Tito (Yugoslav revolutionary and “benevolent dictator” Josip Tito) and 350 of the most important political and military persons in the country.
ARK D-0 exists today only because of the Bosnian military guard, who refused to carry out an order from Serbian high command in Belgrade, who wanted to blow up the bunker up in 1992. Thanks to this forward thinking bit of preservation, Tito’s bunker is still in much the same condition as it was during the Yugoslav era with all of its furniture and equipment intact.
