Military monuments

One of the most perfect fortification systems in Europe was built on the borderlands of the Eagle Mountains in 1936-38. However, it was never used for its purpose. The massive underground military fortress towers only slightly above the surrounding terrain. It is unobtrusive and yet it conceals tonnes of concrete, kilometres of endless tunnels, huge rooms and storages. On the defence line of this border you will encounter numerous individual concrete cabins, observation points and light objects called “řopíky”. They were witness to the tremendous efforts and determination of their builder but also the huge disappointment of their supporters. Learn about the unfinished story of the concrete border, whose chapters have never been finished.
