In the bunker under Stalin at Letná. from outside some strange music and from the ceiling the sound of skaters.

The entire underground complex under the former memorial of J.V.Stalin is divided into several parts. The largest area is the so-called Column Hall - almost 100 square meters large. The space was not build as a bunker - it was not designed for it - its function was to improve static conditions under the monument. It was a "tectonic box" designed to spread the weight of the monument to the largest possible area. The geological conditions for the monumental monument here are very poor. The central part of the Column Hall, the vastness of the premises is considerable, actually it is a whole hectare.
