Finland has long been preparing for a potential invasion – in addition to the formation of the army, fortified bomb shelters were built in the cities to protect the civilian population. For example, a typical old Finnish pool can be drained of all water within a day – and it will turn into a bomb shelter with a capacity of up to 4000 inhabitants.
