    If these are on private land, who owns these? Still the state?

    Take into consideration known structures and structures that are later discovered. Are they property of the state? Can you purchase these? I have only seen a handful of articles about bunkers for sale and they were from many years ago.omegle discord xender

    As I plan to retire in Europe, I think it would be the neatest to own a bunker or other emplacement.

    That's going to vary by country or even states within a country. Best to get a very clear title if you buy one.

    When I lived in Sicily, in the '70s, there were still many bunkers dotted around the countryside. None of them were in use that I could see.

    These places usually belong to the landowners (in the UK at least). Various sites quite often come up for sale here, and get converted into housing of some kind. Recent examples in Scotland include an airfield Watch Tower, a former radar station and another former radio station.
