Full description
Start a private day trip to the Strategic Missile Forces Museum early in the morning, once you meet your guide at the lobby of your hotel. The Missile Base is located 297 km from Kiev and the road takes approx.  3.5 – 4 hours. Your guide will tell you some interesting facts of the Ukrainian history and present along the way.

Strategic Missile Forces Museum attracts adventurous travelers from all over the world, who wants to reveal previously unknown facts about the Cold War period. First, you will explore an indoor exposition of the museum dedicated to nuclear forces of the USSR. Then, your private guide will show you an open-air exposition of military equipment on the territory of missile base. You will learn about the multilevel protection system of the base that prevented any interference. Moreover, you will see an inactive missile silo and 30-meter long SS-18 “Satan” missile that is the highlight of the whole exposition.

In addition, you will have a unique opportunity to descend down 11-floor deep command center. That was a working place of Soviet officers and a top-secret object. You will even press a famous "red button" and hear the signal of siren. Over 50 years ago, it would have meant the launch of a nuclear missile. Luckily, none of the missiles was ever launched there and it saved our planet from terrible consequences.
