Boží Dar. Soviet Ruins in Czech Republic

In 1968 Soviets invaded Czechoslovakia. Their Central Group of Forces was based in Milovice (28 miles from Prague) where there was an airfield (previously used by Nazis).
Soviets built up an entire city, where thousands of Russian soldiers  moved in along with their family. To pay homage to the proverbial Soviet paranoia, the city was fenced off from the rest of the county around Milovice. Local rumors say that Bozi Dar was used as a nuts storage.

After the fall of Communism, Soviets left the country and Bozi Dar was dismissed. After 20 years, everything is in ruin.
