The last stop on my trip through Belarus was the border city of Brest. Only the Brest Fortress has survived the Second World War, but not just the giant memorial complex is worth a visit! 🙂
Many may be familiar with the French Maginot Line. The Soviet counterpart, the Stalin Line, is far less well known. 35 kilometers from Minsk, some of the few remains have been turned into a “Military Amusement Park”.
I went to the “Night of the Museum” at the Museum of the Great Patriotic War in Minsk. “What could go wrong?”, I thought… 😉
Deep inside a forest in Moldova a giant soviet nuclear bunker is decaying in silence…
Welcome to Transnistria – the last Soviet territory in Europe.
When the media report about South Korea, it is rarely about the beautiful things. Sometimes it’s about the most recent high-tech toy from Samsung or LG, but most of the time about the still ongoing conflict with North Korea.

It just sits there on a patch of grass towards the end of the Vinschgau valley near the town of Mals in South Tyrol, Italy: An abandoned Word War I bunker. Time to have a look…
Bad weather and too much rain? Time to go underground 🙂
I wanted to see the military parade in Moscow on May 9th. I wanted it to be big, monumental, just like on TV. But then everything turned out differently!
