Full description
Your day will begin with you becoming familiar with a short story about Nowa Huta and its steelworks. You will enter the building of former directors, before going directly to a special bomb shelter.

Once there you will find some separate rooms which serve special purposes and contain vintage devices which aided in allowing people to survive the threats of the Cold War.

With the help of your guide, you can use a phone and special system to send a message to your friends in other points of the shelter. You can then try to turn on a mechanical air-filter, which previously allowed others to survive radiation and chemical attacks. You will also be free to take photos with the vintage special equipment and helmets.
