  1. Czech Republic Abandoned city of Milovice, Sep 2014.

    Hi! A year ago I was in Czech republic and visited Milovice. Why do we know this town? At first, here parts of popular films "Hostel" and "Eurotour" were shot. And at second, what's more important, Milovice was a place where Soviet military base was situated. After the Second World War the place was used like a military tank base. They built a massive airport and accommodation for about 100,000 Soviet soldiers and their relatives. Soviet army was where till 1991. After 1996 the town is under reconstruction. But still... You can hear the echo of the war here. When you enter it, it's impossible to mix up soviet style of military architecture. It's empty in here. The Czechs are trying to demolish the reminiscence of the base but it's too hard, they need enough money... and you know they need to destroy their history. We were here without a map and didn't find the base and airport itself. But in the city center we found remains of a military village where Russian officers lived. Only in two steps from here there are mordern houses of Milovice. Sounds, laugh and life. And here is the abandoned hospital. Here was a monument to Antonin Sohkor, the commander of tommy-gunners' company in the Second World War, the Hero of the Soviet Union. Now it's demolished and forgotten. Here was the main square, you can still find hints at benches and street lamps. Like a small Pripyat. A gloomy ghost town full of history. I must say it's the most atmospheric place I've ever been.
