Sightseeing


Day tour on 08.07.2018.
9:00 start of day
Excursion in Secret soviet bunker.
In the territory of the rehabilitation centre Līgatne, 9 m underground, there  is  a  well equipped  facility  with  a  total  area  of  2,000  sq.m,  whose  secrecy  grading  was  removed  only in 2003.
The  bunker  was  built  during  the  Cold  War  when the  Soviet  Union  maintained constant  high  alert  for  a  Western attack, more specifically a nuclear assault from the United States. It is hard to imagine, though, how  the  elite  of  Soviet  Latvia  would  have  been  rushed  to  the  bunker  in  a  few  minutes,  given  that the distance from Riga to Ligatne is 75 kilometers. This makes one suspect that the bunker might have been used also in case a nuclear war launched by the Soviet Union. The bunker was supplied with everything  necessary to survive severa months after a nuc lear fallout.
13:00 Lunch in Secret soviet bunker
