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 Kyiv and the road takes approx.  3.5 – 4 hours. Your guide will tell you some interesting facts about Ukrainian history and present them along the way. Strategic Missile Forces Museum attracts adventurous travelers from all over the world, who want to reveal previously unknown facts about the Cold War period. First, you will explore an indoor exposition of the museum dedicated to the nuclear forces of the USSR. Then, your private guide will show you an open-air exposition of military equipment on the territory of the 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 an 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 a 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. After a 2-hour tour of the museum, start your way back to Kyiv. There will be some stops at the gas station, where you may have coffee or a snack. When you arrive in Kyiv, your driver will drop you off at your hotel.
