The 'invisible' Soviet town that suddenly appeared in Poland 21 October 2021
At the end of the Cold War, the town of Borne Sulinowo suddenly appeared on the map in northeastern Poland. One of the most secretive and important Soviet military bases in the Eastern bloc, it was outside of Polish control during the Cold War. Officially, it did not exist. First established by the Nazis, then taken over by the Soviets and rumoured to have hidden nuclear warheads, now Borne Sulinowo is home to over 5,000 people.

yes, we knew a bit about it, but not that much. They were mainly in the North and in the East of Poland, on the areas of previous Eastern Germany. Do you understand Polish? I am impressed! My husband is studying some Polish also.
