Jönköping in Sweden is home to an intriguing underground bunker. Located in the Stadspark (Town Park), construction started in the late 1930s. The underground space was primarily built to shelter the country’s gold reserves during World War II but part of the complex also served as sheltered accommodation for the air-defence authorities. The site is believed to have sheltered the Swedish Crown Jewels at one timne and private deposit boxes were also available for those with the need.
The functions of the bunker continued into the Cold War although after 1960 the Civil Defence functions moved to a purpose-built facility. This bunker was kept on as a standby centre however. The bank section only vacated the premises in around 1980.
