Albanian Bunkers

Albania built approximately half a million bunkers between 1975 and 1989.

The Albanian dictator Enver Hoxha feared that other countries wanted to invade Albania and overthrow him.

He commanded that every municipality in the country should produce and build bunkers, and concrete factories built large concrete building blocks 24 hours a day, on three eight hour shifts.
