Other Communists Monument, Bulgaria (visited Dec. 2013)

Recommended Posts

After a 2.5 hour flight to Bucharest / Romania end of December 2013, I needed for the nearly 300 km drive (partly in fog and on icy mountain roads) another six hours, until I had finally arrived ...

      The last few days I travelled through Saxony, Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt to  visit some spots I always wanted to see.  One of those places was Hotel Atlantis and its beautiful decay.

      The Air Base was the largest underground facility in Europe.
      In the 3.5 Km long tunnels where 80 MIG 21 and up to 1000 soldiers.
      In the near barracks where 5000 soldiers more.
       
      This facility was really huge with all what you need (kitchen, power generators, hospital, fuel tanks, etc.)
      The where able to work and fly with 60 MIGs for 2 month without getting supplies.
       
      There is also an old DC-47 standing around.
