Strachów, (which literally translated means; "spooky" ) is quite a suitable name for this place.
Even though nowadays this place is called differently, Strachów was the official name till 1992.

Strachów was a town built for the soldiers and families of the Russian Army.
The whole terrain is enormous and contains over 300 buildings. Till 1992, this was quite a busy town, including everything the Russians needed in day to day life. There were stores, churches, cinemas, a train station and so on...

Nowadays this area is sometimes used by the Polish army to practice.

Unfortunately, just after we entered this area and climbed to the top floor of the first building, we spotted a whole lot of army vehicles, heading directly in our direction, carrying a lot of very heavy artillery and soldiers.

Since they obviously were going to excursive, we decided to leave quickly, because these are not people you want to mess with, or end up in the middle of their practice. :Not Worthy

To make the entrance to the site a bit more difficult, they blew up the entrance bridge, as you can see in below pics... And to simply illustrate the scale of things, the buildings you'll see on the pictures are only the first 5 or 6 buildings of the 300 in total... :eek:
