The Secret Soviet Bunker in Ligatne

The secret Soviet bunker in Līgatne with various paraphernalia of the Soviet era, household items, served as hideout for governing the state in the case of a nuclear war.

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.
