Gunkanjima (Hashima) Island, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan

The ultimate kingdom of urban exploration – the famous Battleship Island (Hashima).
At some point in its history it was the most densly populated island on the globe. It was utterly abandoned in 1974 but its location and claustrophobic concrete canyons are a sight to behold.

Construction of the grain storage for the Modlin Fortress started in 1832 and was completed in 1844. This beautiful neo-renaisssance building was designed by a renowned architect Jan jakub Gaya and is located on a narrow promontory between Vistula and Narew rivers. Oiginally designed as a storage facility could also be used in a defensive role. Despite serious damage suffered in 1939 (and in post-war years when it was decided to demolish the building in order to recover building material) it is still a majestic site and a joy to look at. What remains today is practically just a half of the original storage but it's still huge. Wide stairs lead from the gate straight down to the river where once barges unloaded their cargoes. Remains of a crane mechanism are still there and it's a joy to sit there and contemplate the mighty Narew river flowing by.

Shadows of a Warsaw Pact glory - part of the secret Army HQ in the Kampinos National Park, Poland.
This small and insignificant building, once disguised as a garage, gives access to tactical rooms, filtration stations, diesel generator rooms, etc, all located under the ground.

Still partially covered with its protective embankment, a single-chamber pillbox idles on an endless field - along with more than a dozen similar ones. They were supposed to screen the main defence line located several kilometers to the south-east, on the approaches to the Carpathian Mountains.
Such simplified pillboxes, with no elaborate plumbing or air-exchange systems were supposed to fulfill an almost suicidal task - to give an early warning and force a deployment of the enemy, thus buying precious time for the main strongpoints to prepare for the onslaught.
None of them has ever seen any combat, just as most of the key strongpoints they were supposed to screen.
In 1941, when hell broke loose, the German advance was too swift and the defence, except for isolated pockets of resistance, never truly materialized.
