The bunker was intended as the secret hiding place for the first secretaries of the Soviet Communist Party – comrades Voss and Pugo. It was one of the strategically important sites in Soviet Latvia in case of a nuclear war.
The bunker is a strong autonomous economic structure with all the necessities and the most modern equipment of the time. The original underground equipment has been preserved up to the present in its entirety. A canteen with a typical menu from the Soviet era is open to visitors.
