As the world is in its worst turmoil since WWII, with terrorism partly due to a refugee crisis, and a new ongoing Cold War between Russia and the West, the super-rich are buying up luxury underground bunkers and panic rooms like never before.
Where will you go when pandemonium strikes? The super-rich are buying up underground bunkers and installing panic rooms in luxury apartments to protect against revolutions or natural disasters, the Daily Mail reports.
The panicked 0.01 per cent are reportedly buying up underground bunkers carved out of bedrock to escape civil unrest and natural disasters.
Bespoke hidden chambers in Germany and the US are being snapped up as the world's wealthiest look to secure a safe spot if crisis strikes, according to their promoters.
And while numbers are difficult to ascertain, experts say more and more of the wealthy are installing 'safe rooms' in their apartments - or at least fortifying rooms to hide in should disaster strike.
While the underground hideaways are designed to withstand the worst natural disasters - they are luxurious above all else.
Customers are encouraged to decorate their 'chamber' like they would their yachts, according to owner Vivos CEO Robert Vicino.
Swimming pools, cinemas, bars and meeting rooms are open to the 'elite' community who can survive underground for one year.
The cheapest of the bunkers will set you back $35,000, while the most delux costs up to $3 million.
The biggest facility is in Germany - Europa One - and is 'one of the most fortified and massive underground survival shelters on Earth, deep below a limestone mountain' and 'safely secured from the general public, behind sealed and secured walls, gates and blast doors'.
