If you're anything like me, you're probably skeptical of the theorists who claim they know when the world will come to an end.
But, regardless of what I think, plenty of people around the world are prepping themselves for the "inevitable" apocalypse that will feast its eyes on Earth. This includes building bunkers that are equipped with all of the necessary survival tools needed to withstand the catastrophic destruction doomsday will surely bring.
While some are basic in structure and are only supplied with the necessitates, others were made fit for a king, or at least a multimillionaire.
Decorated with only the most lavish paraphernalia money can buy, these shelters will make you think you're enjoying a five-star vacation rather than hiding from the rest of the world.
Curious at what living in the lap of luxury looks like? Take a peek at these bunkers that are incredibly swanky compared to your mere humble abode.
First, let's take a look at The Oppidum, which arguably the most doomsday bunker in the world. Located in the Czech Republic, this shelter is equipped with everything your heart desires.
Since the massive 323,000 square foot complex comes with hundreds of amenities and rooms, you'll never crave fresh air again.
Along with an indoor garden fitted with simulated natural light, this bunker features extravagant bedrooms, a conference room, swimming pools, surgical facilities and a command center with equipment to communicate with those living in the outside world.
It also comes stocked with a massive wine cellar that'll last the advertised decade of comfortable accommodations.
"The bunker will be able to provide long-term accommodation for residents - up to 10 years if necessary - without the need for external supplies," the bunker's spokesperson revealed.
The construction for this facility first began during the midst of the Cold War, and took 10 years to complete, and was built to withstand any nuclear attacks, power cuts, and natural or man-made disasters.
Vivos Europa One
If you live closer to Germany, the Vivos Europa One facility is another place you can wait out the Apocalypse. Otherwise known as the "modern day Noah's Ark," this bunker was unveiled in 2015, and was previously used by the military to store their equipment and munitions.
The invitation-only shelter said to be "blast-proof" and is described to "autonomously survive virtually any catastrophe or disaster for several years without needing to return to the surface."
The 76-acre bunker comes complete with every outlet you can think of, such as a communal hospital, a bakery, several restaurants, a wine cellar, prayer rooms, classrooms, and a television station.
Residents are also given the opportunity to design their own living spaces, which can include a swimming pool and movie theater.
However, space is limited. While there are only 34 private living quarters available, it's roomy enough for the average sized family with a 2,500 square foot floor area.
"Your father or grandfather's bunker was not very comfortable," Vivos' CEO, Robert Vicino told CNN.
"They were grey. They were metal, like a ship or something military. And the truth is mankind cannot survive long-term in such a Spartan, bleak environment."
The Survival Condo
If you can't make it to Europe, you may want to look into the Survival Condo, which is located 15 storys underground and has 9-foot thick walls.
The bunker has enough food to feed every resident for at least a year, and is said to be able to withstand any viral epidemic and nuclear warfare.
This facility also comes with a myriad of entertaining accommodations, including a waterslide, medical center, dog park, gym, lounge area, and a shooting range.
However, this location isn't for those tight on cash. If you're interested in a full-floor apartment (around 1,800 square feet), you're looking at spending a cool $3 million. If you're interested in the penthouse option (3,600 square feet), you'll be dishing out around $4.5 million.
