Deifenbunker Ottawa Reviews

This was an unexpected gem in my trip, and was possibly my favourite attraction in a drive across the country. Located in Carp, Ontario, just outside of Ottawa, the Deifenbunker was a bunker built secretly during the Cold War to house military and political powers in the case of a nuclear attack. It was a $30 million project, and only ever used by military personel as a communications base. The underground bunker is a huge facility meant to house 500 people for 30 days. In the tour, you visit the sick bay, the bunks, communications bases as well as the prime minister's bedroom (his wife wasn't one of the special few to be allowed in the bunker).

Though no prime minister has ever had to stay there, Pierre Trudeau once had lunch there...

This sight gives a lot of history into Canada's involvement in the Cold War and how it affected the country.
