Tito’s Shelter in Konjic has been a well-kept secret for years. It was built in secret from 1953 to 1979, called ARK, in order to save Tito and his 350 closest associates in case of a nuclear disaster. This imposing structure with concrete mass columns lies on about 6,500 square meters and it is about 300 meters deep below the earth's surface.
The shelter was built in the case of nuclear war, it is meant to provide functioning central military operations (shelter for Supreme Command Staff) and a shelter for President Tito, his family, and closest associates. This structure is a maze with more than a hundred rooms and a fully preserved inventory (consisting of a number of residential areas; a conference room, offices and a presidential vault) was designed to provide and secure the survival of 350 people for six months. By the 1990s, the construction (net worth $ 4.6 billion) and the existence of this shelter was the most well-kept military secret.
