Excursion: Tito's top secret bunker and battle for the wounded
Meeting point: Mostar
The Memorial Complex of the Battle on the Neretva
The central part of the memorial complex includes the museum building, designed in the spirit of modern architecture. The museum was designed by Branko Tadić, Zdravko Dunđerović and Mustafa Ramić. The main exhibit at the memorial complex is the demolished bridge on the Neretva, a symbol of the Battle for the Wounded. In addition to the bridge, the complex includes the remains of the narrow gauge railway and a well-known 73 series locomotive, designed and built by the Krauss factory in Linz, Austria, in 1913. The bunker on the left bank of the Neretva and the meeting point with eternal flame contribute to the authenticity of the memorial complex as a historic site.
Tito's top secret bunker
Josip Broz Tito, late leader of former Yugoslavia, ordered the building of a secret bunker in the 1950's as safeguard from a nuclear attack. Located 270m underground, near the Bosnian town of Konjic, the project took 26 years to complete, and was built at a cost of just under £3 billion. Made in accordance to allow 350 people to live and work for six months without ever coming outside. This is the story of one of the largest and best-kept secrets of former Yugoslavia, once a miracle of construction, made as a kind of labyrinth, a complex of residential areas, conference rooms, offices, halls for strategic planning, a ‘presidential bloc’ and other sections. Teams of workers changed so no one would know much about the bunker, and workers were brought there blindfolded so they wouldn’t know its location.The bunker is now a venue for contemporary art.
