Skrunda - Listening for Missiles

Yep, that is a ghost town. Skrunda-1 is an abandoned town which was the home for thousands of Soviet soldiers. In the 1960's two radar stations were built in Skrunda. The place was the ears for a possible ICBM attack from the West. The Soviet Union collapsed but the soldiers stayed until 1998. After that, the residential buildings, school, theater and all sorts of buildings were left to decay. In 2016, the place is still standing, but not for long.
