    Rzeczka was one of the smaller of the seven Project Riese underground complexes in South West Poland. This complex was less than a mile from our hotel in Walim and in winter months is in prime ski holiday territory!

    The complex has three entrances, two of which are open to the public. One of the halls underground is 110m x 10m x 15m and is the largest of all the discovered halls. Some of the areas are partly finished off with concrete. The total length of the galleries and halls is around 700m.

    Here is my history of Project Riese:

    Riese is such an amazing place! I've only visited Wlodarz, Osowka and Ksiaz Castle Tunnels, always wanted to see all of it. Years ago you could access some parts of the tunnels that are not open to public, in Owl Mountains, some of them still doable.
    Parts of this huge underground city are still to rediscover, there are many myths and theories around - unknown tunnels or shelters, production of V1 / V2 rockets, destroyed or blocked access to deeper tunnels.
    Thanks for sharing!

    The Polish are really getting their act together in restoring these sites, although I do think some of the displays are a bit OTT or irrelevant, but that's usually the case anywhere.

    What are the people doing in the background of this picture...

    The people in the picture was to show POW's at work during its construction, you pressed a button on the wall and each dummy lit up and German orders were shouted and you could hear the type of machinery they used (drilling etc).
