I was very lucky today to have a sneak preview of Regan Vest, a Cold War bunker that will be opening to the public for the first time in 2021 (its existence wasn’t even known to the public until 2012). The 59,000 square feet of dormitories, offices, communications centers and more was built 200 feet underground in the middle of the forest. Constructed in secret in the 1960s, it was meant to house 350 people (including the Queen) so that the Danish government could keep functioning in case of a nuclear attack. It’s a giant time capsule with pristine relics from the time period still where they’ve sat for decades. An amazing attraction for visitors, but also a chilling reminder of how close we came to blowing each other to smithereens. #52places2019 #aalborg #denmark #history #coldwar
