German Air-Raid Shelters in Krakow



During World War II the Germans built a whole system of air-raid shelters in Krakow which were to protect the authorities and administrative staff in the event of air raids. These shelters are now a relic of the military history of the city.


FEATURES, ORIGINS, VALUES AND LEGAL PROTECTION
In addition to shelters located in the buildings of German administrative offices, the Germans planned to build about 60 public shelters intended for residents of the city. These shelters did not protect against bombs but only from shrapnel. So far only several of this type of shelter has been located but thanks to the efforts of members of the Association, three of them have been adapted for viewing by the public. These structures are also act as exhibition sites that depict the history of the city.
