BBC Travel rapports from inside REGAN Vest
BBC Travel has visited the atomic Cold War bunker REGAN Vest that recently opened its doors to the public. After being kept top-secret for decades it now gives a preview of how it felt to enter this unique subterranean Cold War time capsule.
“I felt as though I was stepping into a secret parallel universe. I'd never seen anywhere quite like it” writes Adrienne Murray Nielsen for BBC.
The Rold Forest just south of Aalborg has revealed its deepest best kept secret. - REGAN Vest - a nuclear bunker from the Cold War. The subterranean bunker is accessed through a 300 meter long tunnel taking you deep underground to the bunker itself. A pair of heavy, airtight doors guards a universe frozen in time from the height of The Cold War.
Adrienne Murray Nielsen writes: "It's a different world here. What's special here is that this bunker stand authentic. It's kind of a time capsule. Quite a huge time capsule."
The interior appears untouched in its originally state dating back to the 60s and 70s, as taken out of an early James Bond film, in an underground world that in many ways functions like a U-boat just on land.
