Mimoň: Let's go, I do not know where

Old Russian newspaper clip
Pin ItPin It

Abandoned military base Mimoň, which lived under the occupation of our Soviet "brothers" is located on the road from Mlada Boleslav in the Czech Lipa and in a beautiful natural area of ​​the Macha Lake Bezděz castle.

Its history is interesting. At times, when there were operating Soviet military forces, the base and with it, the whole neighborhood was one of the most closely watched areas that were not recorded on maps (except military ones, of course).

And not just because the base itself, but also because of the nearby lands are notorious uranium mines (those in the communist era could earn up to 15,000 CZK per month!). Military base in Mimoň his time belonged to the largest military premises in the Czech Republic and orphaned until the departure of Soviet troops back home.

It happened in 1992, while they sang farewell to Michael Kocáb and Prague Selection (CD named Adieu Soviet Army). Today, the road to the base itself seek easy, because obviously there are no indicators or signs, nor any entrance, and buildings are zkryty in the jungle for years untreated green. Just barbed wire and concrete barriers triangular resemble what is behind them zkrývá.Approximately in the middle are two long runways, which are connected along a rectangle, and each of them are built artificial hill, in which there are bunkers fighters and smaller military aircraft. Bunkers are provided massive two-piece door on the tracks, many of them are open.

Near the airport is a huge hangar full of dirt, grime of aircraft and other trash. This is therefore not a strictly military area. Not far away, however, it is a small town with rows of apartment blocks, which dwelt families of soldiers.

All is silence reigns here just vegetation, grass over a meter high. All the prefabs are gutted and soldiers disappeared leaving everything they had of value. Only the most colorful wallpaper on the walls of the rooms remained (dominated by pink and light green).

Even the cables are gutted, just meters remaining plastic insulation and it looks as if undressing snakes skin. For prefabricated stands a long building with three entrances and walls decorated with colorful glass bricks - cultural center. Inside the huge ballroom with a stage further embellished malůvka room in bright colors (now slightly faded and faded). Sometimes you can see the gate with Russian inscriptions, tin ornaments in the form of tanks and red stars.

There's a complex of spa and leisure facilities, something that looks like a school, and many other buildings, many of them painted by Russian inscriptions and all violently plundered. Man has to feel that if the Soviets could Pobre bricks would dismantle almost all the buildings and took it with him. A deathly silence. I look at the dead prefabs and try to imagine how it probably looked in the days when kids used to play here in the sandbox and the houses echoed their laughter. No, no sentiment, just a weird uneasy feeling, a bit like a graveyard.

A propo hard to imagine a better place for a big free party, something like Temporary Free Zone. What about sound to build aircraft bunkers in each other DJ ... We'll see what August will bring. Anyway, let yourself be surprised!
