Tito's bunker detailed description

Explore Tito’s Bunker

Tito’s Bunker is one of the largest and best-kept secrets of the former Yugoslavia. The Bunker is a real miracle of construction, complex for a special purpose – in case a catastrophe happened, Tito and his closest associates would be sheltered here.

The ARK is the largest nuclear shelter, and one of the largest underground facilities, ever built in the former Yugoslavia

This 6500 square meter bunker was one of the most expensive structures in the former Yugoslavia – there was an incredible $4.6 billion spent on this project.

With our local guide, you will discover that took 26 years to build it (from 1953 to 1979) and it was completely designed to withstand nuclear war and shelter communist leaders and army generals. Its air conditioning system, power generator, toilets etc are still working and the water container cistern is filled with fresh water. 

For over a decade after its completion, it was the most secret military installation in the country since all construction workers were carefully selected and vetted, signing a contract of silence, and all staff members held the highest security clearance.

After Tito’s death in 1980, the complex was still kept ready in case of war. In March 1992, during the breakup of Yugoslavia, the JNA ordered its demolition of the Bunker, but the military detachment refused to carry out the order and instead surrendered the structure to the Bosnian government. 

Tito’s Bunker now serves as a meeting point for artists from the region, Europe, and the world, so you will be able to see some very interesting and unique artworks.

Explore Konjic

After the visit to Tito’s Bunker, we will go to the Konjic city centre and talk about its most recognizable landmark – Konjic Old Bridge. This beautiful bridge was connecting the banks of the Neretva River for centuries.

It was since 1682. until WW2, when the German occupiers destroyed it, during the withdrawal of their troops. It was reconstructed as the original bridge in 2009 and has been on the list of national monuments of BiH since 2003.

We will have time reserved for coffee or lunch in this charming town.

Later on, we continue our trip to Sarajevo.

We had to write a review and give a special shoutout to Adnan who was our tour guide on 2 separate tours we took with Meet Bosnia Travel.

On our first day we did the free walking tour around the city of Sarajevo and realised the high quality of the tours offered by Meet Bosnia travel. So we returned to the office & booked a Tito’s Bunker Tour and arranged a tour to Mostar for the weekend.

For both Titos Bunker & our overnight trip to Mostar we had the fantastic Adnan as our driver & tour guide. He is incredibly knowledgable about his country, speaks great English & has a wonderful sense of humour. It was a pleasure having him drive us around & his relaxed attitude was really appreciated when 5 of us couldn’t always decide what we wanted to do next. He really was excellent.

Tito’s bunker was well worth a visit, it was a fascinating time capsule in the side of a mountain. Mostar & the surrounding areas was also great – very beautiful. We were also taken on a wine tasting tour which is certainly worth doing if the opportunity arrises. The small family run vineyard was picturesque and we felt as welcomed as if we were old family friends.

Huge thanks to Adnan for being awesome!
