Bunker Škrilj was built 72 meters below the surface during the Cold War. There are 600 m of corridors and six underground rooms with their own water reservoir and two electricity generators. They would make it possible to stay here and survive for up to 100 days without outside help in the event of atomic bombing.
For a long time Bunker Škrilj has been considered to be one of the best-kept Slovenian secrets, but since 2017, visiting these underground corridors has been possible for organized groups. The forest above the village of Škrilj remains a closed military area to this day.
