Look Inside the Doomsday Bunkers of the Rich & Famous

Look Inside the Doomsday Bunkers of the Rich & Famous: Forbes


The rich: they’re just like us after all! They are also planning for the end of days, but instead of batteries and bottled water, it’s indoor pools and blast-proof walls they hoard.

Forbes takes us inside Vivos Property’s Vivos Europa One, a five-star underground survival shelter with all the pre-apocalypse amenities one could want.

Designed to function similarly to an underground yacht, the facility will be maintained by two separate climate-cooling systems, three diesel systems, a water treatment facility, and back-up systems to insure that Europa One remains operational. The grounds also include a fully-functional hospital, restaurant areas, and a power plant.



As far as protection from roving bands of post-apocalyptic marauders goes, you could certainly find worse places to wait out the end of days than a retro-fitted Soviet shelter built into a German mountainside.

The hardened facility is capable of withstanding a substantial close range nuclear blast, a direct airplane crash, biological and chemical agents, shock waves, earthquakes, tsunami, electro-magnetic pulses, and virtually any armed attack.

Secured entrance to the compound.

Members of the facility will be assigned their own living quarters, which will be made over in whatever fashion they prefer with the help of the Vivos team. Each unit comes with water, power, internet connections, HVAC systems, and communication lines to the rest of the facility.



Private improvements will include all of the typical amenities enjoyed by the floating counterparts, including pools, theaters, gyms, a kitchen, bar, bedrooms and deluxe bathrooms. The possibilities are limited only by each member’s personal desire.

You know, bowling alleys, weight rooms, wine cellars, all the same things the rest of us will be enjoying while we’re shivering in caves and fighting over expired cans of beans.

And don’t worry, because even if the rest of humanity goes extinct, those swank enough to have bought into Europa One will be able to repopulate the Earth:

Additionally, the shelter will include a collection of zoological species, an archive for the most precious artifacts and treasures of the world, a DNA Vault to preserve and protect the genomes of millions of donors, and a modern day “Hall of Records”, to autonomously survive virtually any catastrophe or disaster for several years.

The bunker is currently operating in “turnkey mode,” meaning that at a moment’s notice the facility is designed to be up and running, providing fresh water and power to any and all members of the Illuminati and their families.
