In Josip Broz Tito's luxury bunker

33 years ago, inside the mountain Zlatar near Konjica in BiH, was built nuclear shelter that was the main command place of the former JNA (Jugoslavian National Army), and for that building knew only four official commanders, and workers who had to sign a contract for silence.
The construction of Tito's bunker lasted from 1953 to 1979 and cost $4.6 billion. Since the beginning of the construction of the bunker it was hidden by nature and three houses and therefore nothing could be seen that just under them is the most important object in the SFRY (Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavija) and her leader - Josip Broz Tito.

The bunker is composed of three parts. First masked part is visible from the outside, followed by supervisory residence, facility for rigorous insurance of the former president of Yugoslavia, Josip Broz Tito, and the facility for accommodation of technical support.

When passing through the hallway of the first house, a metal door opens with a thickness of 1.20 meters, and behind that door it can be found the tunnel that leads to the heart of nuclear hideout at a depth of 280 meters.

Tunnels are the link between the masked part and the nuclear hideout that can withstand a nuclear attack of 20 kilotons.

The last part of the object is in the form of a horseshoe and has 12 blocks. Inside are housed protection systems, fire prevention system, protection system against nuclear attack and climate.

The bunker has an alternative exit that does not exist on the map, and leads 170 meters high hill above the object.

More than a hundred sleeping rooms are located on an area of 6.854 square meters in which, in the case of nuclear attack, could sleep 350 people from the highest political and state peaks in Yugoslavia.

They could stay in the hideout for 6 months without any contact with the outside world. Despite the numerous rooms, significant place exist for Tito's luxury residence with five chambers.

The building is now owned by the Ministry of Defence of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and is guarded by five soldiers and it hosts cultural events.
