    Default Soviet Cold War Ghost Town (Pic Heavy)

    What's up everyone,

    I've decided to post this here, hope I have the right category. The reason being that this ghost town deep inside the forests of Brandenburg once played a very important role in the Cold War. It was specifically built to store nuclear weapons, as well as housing the families of scientists, those in the military, engineers etc.

    I went at this one solo, and for the next 6 hours I was living my dream. I am a real Soviet nut, and I'd actually just returned from a 3 month trip all across Russia and Ukraine (of course I saw Pripyat!). I thought Pripyat was the only chance I'd ever have to see the raw, unspoiled traces of life behind the Iron Curtain, turns out I was wrong. As with all good things though, there's usually a catch (and there was) which I will go on to at the end. I have literally hundreds more Photographs of this great place, but I've narrowed it down to a select few. Anyway, hope you enjoy.









































    So everything is going perfect, then from somewhere in the depths of the forest I heard a noise of real dread. Howling wolves, sounded like a couple of them. At first I was able to put it off, but then it got louder, more numerous and sounded as if it was outside the door. I cringe to think just how much of this amazing place I left behind, but I took no chances. I packed my gear and ran like hell!

    Cheers for looking!

    Thanks a lot Priority. )))

    Yes, I did Beelitz while I had the chance! Cracking explore too. Unfortunately 3 months in Russia swallowed up probably 90% of my funds, and I was down to my last few hundred. I didn't have time to hang around in Berlin for much longer.

    I have my eye on a few things for December in those regions, but I'm not sure where they are and I'm really struggling to find more info. Think you could possibly help me out if I send you a PM? You might know of them/or even seen them before.

    Cheers!

    The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.

    Fantastic place, always nice to see behind the "Iron Curtain" keep them coming! The crumbling, Cold War remains, should always be photographed and recorded.
