Wikileaks founder Julian Assange sure knows how to pick where his leaked documents are stored. He chose not just any high-security data center but the Pionen Data Center near Stockholm, Sweden. The WikiLeaks bunker is 100 feet underground and serves as the network operations centre of one of Sweden's largest ISPs, Bahnhof.

The futuristic look of the WikiLeaks bunker includes details like a space-themed floating floor conference room. Backup power is supplied by German submarine engines. The steel-and-granite look of the WikiLeaks bunker has been softened in places with artificial waterfalls and greenhouses.
