British students help to restore wartime bunker in Petržalka

The historical BS 3 “Paseka” bunker in the Petržalka borough of Bratislava is being restored by British students as part of an international work camp. The students, aged 14 to 16, are primarily helping to reconstruct the bunker’s interior. The bunker itself used to be part of a military defence line on Petržalka territory. As the Petržalka administration’s spokesperson Mária Grebeňová-Laczová informed the SITA newswire, the end of July already saw the second turn of young volunteers from Great Britain who engaged in renewing the neglected structure.

The historical BS 3 “Paseka” bunker in the Petržalka borough of Bratislava is being restored by British students as part of an international work camp. The students, aged 14 to 16, are primarily helping to reconstruct the bunker’s interior. The bunker itself used to be part of a military defence line on Petržalka territory.

The project of the work camps is organised by the INEX Slovakia association and in the borough of Petržalka arranged in cooperation with the civic association Múzeum petržalského opevnenia / Museum of Petržalka Fortification, which seeks to explore the military history of this side of the Danube River, which used to play a crucial role in the defence of the whole city.
