Package Itinerary

The mysterious Object 1 so called “Stalin Metro” or South Tube used to be a special secret construction of USSR. These are two underground tunnels under the Dniper River in Kiev built in case the city’s bridges got blown up during war.

Stalin initiated it in 1936 to strengthen the fortification system of the city. For the construction of the object up to 12000 workers were involved.

After the German troops approached Kiev the works were stopped there. In a hurry unfinished tunnels where submerged and some equipment covered up with soil. Another part of the techniques, materials etc together with the personnel and workers were evacuated.

The evidences of magnificent construction can be found on both banks of the Dniper river and in Obolon district of Kiev.

During the tour we will see:

- one caisson on Obolon quay;

- two caissons and the longest on-land part of the tunnels located on the Zhukov island stretching for 700 m.

- one waterlogged caisson and tunnel on Osokorki
