The Femore Fortress - a cold war museum

Oxelösund

Built into the rock below Oxelösund in Sweden is a huge nuclear safe bunker, from which 70 soldiers could defend this part of Sweden with 3 guns against an invasion from the Soviet Union and the Warzaw Pact during the cold war. The fortress was built in 1966 and in use until 2003.

Visit the guns both above and below ground. Over 450 meters of tunnel system links the different parts within the fortress, which is protected by 10-30 meters of granite and concrete. Experience how it was to live in the fortress. Look at the sleeping quarters, kitchen and command post.

There is a small café and museum shop with souvenirs and cold war books at the fortress.
