In 2009, internet service provider Bahnhof opened the doors to its underground Pionen data centre in the White Mountains of Stockholm, Sweden. The facility shares the same name and location as a 1970s atomic shelter built by the Swedish government during the Cold War. If that's not enough mystique for you, it also hosted Wikileaks' servers and has the architectural opulence of a <i>James Bond</i> villain's underground lair. Check out the rest of the gallery for an in-depth tour. [Image credit: Bahnhof]
