An old bunker built around the time of World War II in Turopolje, situated between Zagreb and Sisak in central Croatia, is set to be restored to help boost tourism in the small culturally-historic region...

The underground bunker, which was used for a long time by locals as a cooler, will turn into a wine shop, and also a place which will be used to promote Turopolje wines, rakijas and other agricultural products from the area.

Also on the site, which is located right behind the Turopolje museum, a tourist information centre, cafe, and multi-purpose hall will be constructed.
