Alekšince, a small village in Nitra region, can boast of a unique rarity in the Slovak territory . At a depth of seven meters below the ground, there is the Museum of Socialism and the Cold War.

It is worth noting the radio and training center, telephone exchange, liaison room, filtration, decontamination and anti-noise unit, equipment and armature.
