  1. Hi, something about Libava. I'm sorry for my bad English. Libavá is a military space in the Czech Republic with an area of 320km2. There are several dozen mines there. The slate has been cultivated here since the 16th century and has left its remains in the landscape. Before World War II there were 24 villages. Since 1946, all public space has been inaccessible. The army is being trained here and entry is strictly forbidden. Slate bearing on the Olomouc Hill is one of the largest in Central Europe. According to surveys from 1947, the power reaches up to 100 m. The slate was broken in the 16th century, the extraction was gained after 1832. In 1889, due to the long and hard winters, which considerably reduced the surface mining, deep mining was started; down to 500 miners worked. In the years 1915-1932, mining was stopped, then about 150 employees worked (under WWII for two hundred prisoners of war). Mining was terminated after the establishment of military space. Attempts to rebuild mining took place in 1992-94, a new exploration pit was thrown out, but the mismatch of potential extraction with the military drilling regime was cut off from plans. I managed to get into one mine where it was mined by 2002. The mine is not directly in the military space, but corridors that are several kilometers long lead there. The mine has 3 floors. The top floor is only 200 meters long and it has a 50-meter deep shaft that serves for ventilation. 2nd floor has a covered entrance, it can only be reached from the 1st floor using climbing equipment (the connection is 30 meters high). I shot from this video, trying to capture the underground in all its beauty. Enjoy

  6. I found this church during my search on Google Earth. Fortunately, I was able to enter. The church was built in the beginning of the 18th century, earlier was here an older church from the 14th century. The church was abandoned in the 1950s, it was spared from looting and theft. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

  9. 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.
  10. Unfortunately, I don't know any history. By the way, all photos were only taken from the outside, through the bars of the windows. Therefore, no access was possible - or if, only by a deep cellar window. But even that wasn't possible because of local residents. So I only took a few photos from the outside and then we drove on. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
  11. Got the coordinates for this place. Its an old church closed since the early 60's, due to communism I believe. A local artist has made all these ghost that represent Germans praying before the war. Its is one of the more remote locations I have gone to, the roads to the village were just rough tracks. _COZ8819 _COZ8854 by _COZ8777 DSC_6991
