Have you ever heard of Skrunda-1? Yes, it is the biggest ghost town of the Baltic States once harbouring around 5000 people. But what makes it special is that is it not just a regular ghost town, but for years it had a status of a top secret closed down area that held the most novel military installations Soviet Union had to offer. It is truly a desert for anyone interested in touching the past with their own fingers. So join us in this trip, but remember: one thing is to get in the town, another to get out of it!
