Autopanne?! 🤔😮🧐 Auf dem Weg von Pythagóreio zurück nach Kokkari stand dieses verlassene Fahrzeug am Straßenrand und hat uns durch seinen Charme zum anhalten gezwungen. Falls jemand eine Idee zum Baujahr dieses Opels hat gerne einen Kommi da lassen ;) #oldcars #retro #nofilterneeded #nofilter #natureisback #ruin #brokencar #lastcentury #opel #oldtimer #longtimeago #naturelover #travelgirl #travelgram #lostplace #lostcar #fascinating #lostplaces #girl #natureperfection #travelers #vintage #shabbychic #shabby

SPIKE ISLAND. What is the best way to spend a Saturday night? Take a ferry to a haunted prison island, watch "Conjuring" at the children's block and then take a tour in the dark! So what is Spike Island? 1300 years ago there was a Monastery. In XVIII century the star-shaped fort named Fort Mitchel has been built. It became the largest prison in the world during the Victorian times (10 times bigger than Alcatraz), which housed over 2300 inmates. Murderers, rapists, thieves and all kinds of sinners made this facility a home. You can only imagine the good aura of this place, not mentioning large numbers of deaths, fatal accidents, riots and suicides. The first photo shows the Block A, which has been burned down completely during a riot. Following photos portray the entrance, different blocks, fort panorama and prison cells. The prison was active until 2004. What about ghosts? According to staff, there are lots of strange things going on. You can find that out yourself by booking a tour. My adventure rating is 5/5 by no means. I'm tempted to take a day tour now and do some proper exploration.

Former USSR Missile Base in Karmėlava, Lithuania ☢ (Part 4/4). Thermonuclear warhead storage section (РТБ). This is "Mordor" of the entire area. The most secured, the most important and the most lethal object of all. After you get through the security checkpoint (3rd one), your eyes automatically stick to a massive face of Lenin on the wall, framed with Soviet propaganda slogans. Since then you know - he's watching you. You continue walking with the eyes of "Товарищ" on your back until you notice two large hangars. Each consists of two sections - technical (all the necessary tech-support for the nuclear weapon so it's all pampered and comfy, i.e. maintenance of constant temperature) and then storage section. If there's any radiation abnormality in this area - you are most likely to find it here (no worries, there's higer radiation level during your flight on the plane). I won't discuss the characteristics of this 2.3 megaton beast in detail (see the past articles), but one equipped missile would be enough to wipe out an entire city with suburbs. During the Cold War, civil Lithuanian people who lived nearby had no idea that nuclear weapon was just around the corner. They knew there were secret Soviet military bases in the woods, but didn't know their purpose. But how could they? Soldiers used to organize macabre shows to scare civilians off (i.e. by throwing live dogs on the triple electric fences to show their shock capacity, so no one would even dream of breaking into the area). And you know what? None of these bases have ever been used according to their purpose. Not a single missile has ever been launched. All this effort, time and money invested had absolutely no purpose whatsoever. I guess that's just a definition of a Cold War era. #militarytourism #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #military #historical #education #заброшенное #urbexlithuania #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #missile #adventure #urbanexplorer #radioactive #explore #urbanphotography #abandonedplaces #active #lifestyle #travel #roadtrip #урбан #прогулка #поехали
Former USSR Missile Base in Karmėlava, Lithuania ☢ (Part 3/4). Missile storage/assembly/launch section. This section has its own security checkpoint (КПП), anti-radiation bunker, headquarters, missile storage and assembly hangars, missile tech-support hangars, process control bunkers and 4 launch pads. The area was designed in a way that the missile launch process would have taken approximately 3 hours (including attachment of thermonuclear warhead, addition of oxidiser and fuel, transportation to the launch pad and actual launch). In case of war, the military officers in the base wouldn't have had a clue where they would be sending the missiles - co-ordinates would have been received directly from Moscow as a code, with no particular location specified. #militarytourism #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #military #historical #education #заброшенное #urbexlithuania #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #missile #adventure #urbanexplorer #radioactive #explore #urbanphotography #abandonedplaces #active #lifestyle #travel #roadtrip #урбан #прогулка #поехали
Former USSR Missile Base in Karmėlava, Lithuania ☢ (Part 2/4). Technical section. Garages and technical service complex. All types of vehicles - personal and military - that belonged to this particular division have been kept and serviced here. Condition of the buildings is not great, however the authentic signs on the walls/ceiling are still visible to this day. Also the graffiti, disposed tyres and welcoming posters 🚷⚠ #militarytourism #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #military #historical #education #заброшенное #urbexlithuania #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #missile #adventure #urbanexplorer #radioactive #explore #urbanphotography #abandonedplaces #active #lifestyle #travel #roadtrip #урбан #прогулка #поехали
Former USSR Missile Base in Karmėlava, Lithuania ☢ (Part 1/4). Housing/Administration section. Another piece of Cold War nuclear heritage in Lithuania. And also, one of the best preserved since it's been completely abandoned after Soviet army left. While you drive around the asphalt-free fields and woods by the Karmėlava Airport, counting the potholes and stones that hit your car, you get a sudden relief when the tyres finally touch a solid surface with a sound of dum-dum-dum. That's a rhythm of a road to almost every former USSR military object, since the roads have been paved with concrete blocks (infrastructure at its best). Karmėlava Missile Base was equiped with R-12 (SS-4 Sandal, according to NATO classification) ballistic missiles, capable of carrying thermonuclear warheads. Perimeter of this military facility is divided into 2 main sections: housing/administration/technical and missile storage/assembly/launch (traditional structure). The Housing/Administration part contains the main checkpoint, anti-radiation bunkers, barracks, canteen, headquarters, military officer club and water storage building. #militarytourism #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #military #historical #education #заброшенное #urbexlithuania #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #missile #adventure #urbanexplorer #radioactive #explore #urbanphotography #abandonedplaces #active #lifestyle #travel #roadtrip #урбан #прогулка #поехали
Former USSR Missile Base in Gulbiniškiai, Lithuania ☢ HISTORY. Built in 1959-1960 during the Cold War era. Housed 2nd division of Karmėlava missile regiment. This object is co-related and interconnected with other 2 nearby objects - Dumsiai Military Base and Gaižiūnai Air Base. STRUCTURE. Like any other former USSR over-ground R-12 missile base, it has a technical section - transport garages where they provided local mechanical/technical service. Also administration/housing section (ruined to bits today). The last but not least - hangars for missile assembly/storage, accompanied with 4 launch pads (each designed to launch 2 missiles at a time). However, there were 2 unusual extras - Radio and Training Regiment sections (explains why there were outdoor shooting range and Signaller Battalion established in a nearby base). STORY. We arrived just before the sunset after exploring another base in Karmėlava (1st division). We wanted to see as much as possible until it gets dark. You probably wonder why are we wearing gas masks. Radiation? No. Well, there's higher radiation level than normal in some places indeed, but it usually has no significant impact on human body. My main concern was toxic missile fuel (I got poisoned before while exploring the Project 2 area, so I didn't want to repeat this "pleasant" experience). Note - there were authentic warnings in Russian on the walls urging soldiers to avoid spillage and not to smoke in the fuel storage buildings. Also the phrase "САМИН - кровяной ЯД" ("Samin" - bloody poison") does not sound very optimistic. Overall, the trip was successful. We didn't have a chance to see another 2 bases, but we will in a nearby future. I am writing another article about missile fuel at the moment - its chemical composition, use and toxicity (just to show that gas mask in this case is no game). #militarytourism #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #military #historical #nuclear #заброшенное #urbexlithuania #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #selfie #adventure #urbanexplorer #radioactive #abandonedplaces #gasmask #urbanphotography #active #lifestyle #travel #roadtrip #прогулка #поехали
I don't know where to begin. Never seen anything like this in Ireland. It's simply breathtaking. Me and my man were driving home from a long walk in the mountains and found THIS standing by the road. No fencing, no signs, nothing at all. I pulled the car at the side of the road and we went in to explore. Obviously, the house has been on fire ~5-6 years ago. It started on the first floor, because the ceiling fell into the ground floor (which was not burnt). All the furniture and personal belongings were still inside. No sign of vandalism. The Christmas tree was lying on the floor in the sun room, still decorated. Children's bicycle, swings were laying outside. It seemed like the fire happened a few hours ago, because everything was left the way it was back then. Only the grass was growing inside, indicating that it happened a few years ago. What the actual F? My analytical nature is telling me that in such situation people would try to collect and preserve their belongings after a fire and maybe try to rebuild the house. IF there is any people remaining... And if there is no owners, why the property is not fenced off? I tried to find out what happened there, but there's no information on internet at all. P.S. no coordinates given in order to prevent vandalism.

Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant (INPP) This massive object was once the most powerful NPP not only in the USSR, but in the entire world (yes, even more powerful than the one in Chernobyl). At one stage it supplied 80% of Lithuania's electricity, thus have been included into the Guiness World Records. The primary construction plan in 1978 contained four type RBMK-1500 reactors (each of 1500MW electrical and 4800MW thermal power capacity), however only 2 reactors have been built and put in operation. Construction has been suspended straight after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. Both reactors of INPP have been shut down one after another in 2004 and 2009 respectively due to EU safety agreement. I will not get deeper into INPP's history and technical data, it's pure physics and you can google it yourself (if you're a nerd like me). So what is going on in there at the moment? Nothing but decommissioning project. The object is not abandoned for sure, but entry is strictly forbidden for random visitors. However you can still explore the perimeter around the place (and believe me, it's an entire town). It's awful that so much money has been invested in the past and everything is going to waste now - territory, employment and massive amounts of cheap power (for local and international use). Also, the closing down project is probably even more expensive than the construction itself ever was. However, I'm not supporting nuclear power production at all. Even though it might look like a cheap and easy solution, it always comes with a great price. I think none of such producers can take the responsibility of safe waste disposal (safe? is it really? how much do we really know?). And what about the technical aspect? Technology breaks, wears off, produces faults on regular basis. Can we afford another disaster due to an error? #powerplant #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #selfie #historical #nuclear #заброшенное #urbexlithuania #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #couplegoals #adventure #urbanexplorer #radioactive #explore #summer #extreme #active #lifestyle #travel #roadtrip #урбан #прогулка #поехали
Project-2. Another rainy adventure. I would love to provide a tonne of historical facts about this object, but unfortunately there are only few (building plans are hiding somewhere in Russia together with most of it's history). This object was top secret during Cold War period, so even the locals didn't have a clue what was going on in those woods behind electric fences and high security. According to Russian military forums, soldiers weren't properly informed either. This object is a former USSR nuclear missile base ("over-ground" one, as there are no silos under ground). The R-12 missiles and their nuclear heads have been kept separately in special hangars. The base is composed of 2 complexes - housing and military. However, we have discovered other 2 (very similar) complexes nearby, which are not mentioned in any source of information. And this got our attention. The 4-complex structure on the satellite looks different from all the sketches made by Russian soldiers, who have been serving in other R-12 "over-ground" bases. It's very strange, because most of USSR buildings with the same purpose shared similar/identical structure plans. Anyway, it took us a full day to explore this massive base (4 damn complexes, not 2 as we thought before our commitment to Project-2). There were 2 hangars with extremely strong smell of unknown chemicals, so we presumed those were the places they tave been keeping missile fuel (those chemicals are very dangerous and poisoning can sometimes result in death). So what do you think? After half hour I was shaking in a car, white like a dizzy abdo-cramp-torn white sheet of paper and ready to vomit my life out. I was even convincing myself that I will be ok...there, in the other side, ha. At this stage we have more questions than before and even more work to do. Bring it on! #militarytourism #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #military #historical #nuclear #заброшенное #urbexlithuania #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #urbanphotography #adventure #urbanexplorer #radioactive #explore #abandonedplaces #extreme #active #lifestyle #travel #roadtrip #урбан #прогулка #поехали
The best way to explore large military objects in the woods and stay low key in autumn? By picking mushrooms. This way you will have a valid reason to be in the area. With a knife.

Project-2. We finally did it. We have explored the hell out of this massive military base and now we know - we have a project. Soon there will be more amazing visual stuff accompanied with a few paragraphs of history and memoirs (love this word, always wanted to use it in a sentence, ha). Oh, this place gives me goosebumps. Not because it's creepy (what does that even mean?), but because it has a mystery. A mystery we are tempted to solve. #militarytourism #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #military #historical #nuclear #заброшенное #urbexlithuania #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #missile #adventure #urbanexplorer #radioactive #explore #abandonedplaces #extreme #active #lifestyle #travel #roadtrip #урбан #прогулка #поехали
Karosta, the "War Port" of Liepāja, Latvia. Some people of Liepāja say that this particular neighbourhood is a scar of the city - crime, drugs and neglect. I have a different opinion and I will explain you why. Just before leaving the city centre, we approached a wooden bridge. We knew it led to Karosta, the former military port built for the Tsar Alexander III in 1890-1906. Later this port housed USSR navy (Балтийский флот). During the Soviet occupation, Karosta was completely separated from the city itself and was accessible to military personnel only. I cannot explain the power of contrast in this place, where the old Russian elegance intersects with the traces of rough Soviet militarism (note the pictures of an Orthodox Cathedral behind the apartment block). Every street of Karosta is surrounded by either abandoned red brick mansions or Soviet epoch apartment blocks. Anyway, the atmosphere was rather sad than rough. So many things happened in the place now forgotten. On our way home we tried to find an access to the port itself (because there was a submarine base and a massive hangar we wanted to see), but we hit the security fence every time (no trespassing, no cameras etc.). One time even a security guard came out of the cabin just a second after we approached the gate. So we gave up. For now. Finally, I would like to say that even though Karosta is called a nasty scar of Liepāja, it's a beautiful one. Like the one you get in a battle. The one you can be proud of. I want to go back there already and immerse myself into this magical land of contrast again (and the submarine base, ha). #militarytourism #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #ghosttown #заброшенное #urbexlatvia #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #forgotten #adventure #urbanexplorer #abandonedplaces #oldtown #explore #outdoors #urbanphotography #lifestyle #travel #roadtrip #урбан #романтика #район #прогулка #поехали
Southern fort of Liepāja, Latvia (Liepājas dienvidu forti). If you want to visit a place where many people have died in the battle - go to Liepāja. Seriously. Small city = big history. Why is it so special? Well, I haven't seen any other city so small with that many fortifications around it. So, once upon a time... it was raining, we were bored and decided that we needed an adventure. Latvian adventure. Immediately. Just before we entered the city, I turned my head to the left and saw this massive building complex standing by the road. 'Holy sh*t... This is it! Stopstopstopstop now, turn left, look there, parkparkpark, what a beauuuty...' - my casual reaction to every new "war object" we find. The site was unprotected, so anyone could go for a walk and explore. So we did. The tunnels were never ending, some flooded, some not. Even though the territory was large enough, it would have been hard to get lost in there. The history of Festung Libau fortifications is extremely complicated, mainly due to constant Russian-German invasions, so I won't be getting into this (you can google it yourselves if you like). The only thing I would like to highlight is that this place has seen heavy fighting in both WW1 and WW2 ("good aura" - my man would say). The "good aura" isn't the main issue you should be concerned about before visiting such places, especially if you are not an experienced adventurer. There were homeless people living there. We saw mattresses, household items and other random stuff (no syringes though). So theoretically we "broke in". However, when you're badass, nothing scares you anymore (well, maybe spiders, ha). Anyway, I didn't have a chance to see every "war object" in Liepāja yet (because they're too numerous to count). But I'll be back. #militarytourism #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #abandonedplaces #urbanphotography #заброшенное #urbexlatvia #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #forgotten #adventure #urbanexplorer #bunker #underground #explore #outdoors #active #tunnel #travel #roadtrip #бункер #урбан
Former USSR military air base in Vaiņode, Latvia. Just after our last adventure in Mažeikiai (Lithuania), we decided to visit our "braliukas" (Latvian brother) on our way home. We knew this place existed, but we had no plan, no directions and no GPS, so we used our 6th sense instead. What we found was pure heaven I must say. When you arrive through the woods with a Suzuki bike and there is a 2500x60m runway in front of you, losing your sh*t is mandatory. But first things first. History. This massive object is abandoned since 1993, but was in full use since WW1. Germans used to keep their "Zeppelins" there during the WW1 and the air base was used by German Sturmgeschwader4 during the WW2. Before the Cold War, the base was taken over by USSR. It was mainly used for Su-15, Su-27 and MiG-23 fighter plane operations. Ballistic missiles R-14 have also been deployed there. How come? Well, there was a 3-silo R-14 missile base (Р-14 "Чусовая" ШПУ) standing nearby. Was? Yes, angry "braliukai" from the government recently destroyed this brilliant monument before I had a chance to see it (how inconsiderate). Back to the point. Besides a massive runway, there are also ~20 plane hangars all over the place. Feels like you are on a different planet, no sh*t. Today this place is used for drift events and well, for other crazy people (like myself) to see. We had a great urbex experience and tested our Suzuki to the max. Also, got a flat tyre. In another country. How brilliant is that... Thanks to all random people on our way home who helped us not to die (by letting us inflate that damn tyre in their garages). #militarytourism #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #airbase #runway #заброшенное #urbexlatvia #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #forgotten #adventure #urbanexplorer #couplegoals #sportsbike #abandonedplaces #outdoors #active #lifestyle #travel #roadtrip #урбан #urbanphotography #прогулка #поехали
Old railway bridge of Mažeikiai. It was sunny September day, so me and my man decided to go for a spin with a motorbike and visit one of the most elegant "war objects" (that's how we call them) in Lithuania. This place is tied to so many legends and scary stories, that I wouldn't even know where to begin. So let's get to it's history first. The bridge has been built in 1904-1905, over a river Venta and then destroyed by Russians during the WW1 battle with Germans (~1915). After it has been rebuilt, the bridge had to withstand another series of battles of WW2. You can still see bullet holes in the walls today. The bridge is not in use and is protected as a historical object. However, there is a new fully operating railway bridge standing right next to it. History is interesting, but it will never beat the local legends. Some visitors of this bridge said, that they heard shooting and even saw soldiers walking and then disappearing. Different people mentioned bricks and stones thrown into them, out of nowhere. Also silhouettes used to appear at the windows. It is known that during the WW2 Germans killed ~4000 people around this area, but there is no official proof (I wouldn't be surprised, every second forest in Lithuania is a mass grave). Well, we didn't feel any bad vibes coming out of this bridge and didn't see any soldiers either (ha, too bad). However, it was a great adventure. #militarytourism #urbex #urbanexploration #darktourism #abandoned #military #historical #abandonedplaces #заброшенное #urbexlithuania #urbexworld #urbanart #urbexpeople #lostplaces #urbandecay #lithuaniangirl #forgotten #bridge #adventure #urbanexplorer #urbanphotography #explore #outdoors #active #lifestyle #travel #roadtrip #урбан #прогулка #поехали
