Anti-nuclear normal apartment in eastern europe – is it a good option?

All cities in eastern europe, even small ones, have been built in the idea of surviving a nuclear attack. Many, probably 30% of flatblocks, also have an underground anti-nuclear room where the family can retreat into in case of a nuclear attack. Even small, 100k enhabitants cities that would not be a nuclear target have them.

What do you think about this kind of apartments? Their location is generally not good because if things go south, that’s where the frontline will probably be. But some ex-soviet countries like Slovenia or Kazahstan are far away enough from the action.

Would such a standard, anti-nuclear soviet apartment be a good option? What would be the best location? I suppose in a city in the mountains, below 300k enhabitants so that it’s not even a target unless all the nukes get fired. Should it be in a NATO country or in central asia? What would be the prons and cons of such an option?

      Czech republic and Romania are / were popular with  Brits into prepping and home steading/off gridding, but most chose to live in rural areas. Currently form Yugoslavic states are popular along places like the Adriatic coasts.

      Public information on MODERN nuclear conflictys is generally way out of date, Most nations now use high precision, low yield or sub kiloton devices instead of the older very inaccurate megaton size devices.
