The Bunker in the District of Wawok in Rybnik

The shelter in Wawok, which is a district of Rybnik, is part of the fortifications built by the Poles in 1939, in the last months before the Second World War. Next to it, there are two other shelters from that time. None of them was completed before the outbreak of the war, but all had their part in the defense campaign. In 2005-2007, the forgotten shelter was renovated by a group of the enthusiasts and it is occasionally open to the public.
