Camp (Den) earthworms (Regenwurmlager) - the legendary fortification in the west of Poland. Another name - Mezeritsky fortified area. Lair was built in the late 30-ies of XX century in order to protect the eastern border of Germany.
It is a complex of German fortifications, military - engineering phenomenon, concreted underground city in the forests of the North-West of Poland.
It was named after the river (creek) Regenwurm near which is the main part of the underground complex.
The Lair of earthworms lives one of the largest colonies of bats in Europe. Their number is really amazing. They are everywhere - on the ceiling, on the walls, in the air. Their cries do not stop.
Due to the action of the Treaty of Versailles only minor defensive facilities were built at the beginning. After a visit to the construction site of Hitler's 35th year, the concept of the defense system has been substantially updated. The length of the lines of defense was to be 110 km, with a depth of 3 km front, the garrison - 2 infantry divisions consisting of approximately 35,000 people, of which one-third - a permanent garrison. To ensure a high defense capability uses the most advanced technology at the time, including automatic, retractable on pillbox guns, flamethrowers with a range of up to 75 meters, mortars and so on. Trunk to one of the bunkers (Pillbox):
Since March 1935 the Germans start to construction of the underground part of the complex - Camp earthworm. Especially for the delivery of construction materials road was built for secrecy leading to the fortified bypassing settlements.
At the initial stage Lair earthworms built open method, which was extremely time-consuming. From April 1936 to build a start with the two tunnel boring machine, accelerated the volume of the daily passage of the tunnel to 65 meters.
right after these growths, we met with the family of Germans, one of the members of the family - a little dog. By the way, in some places there is water on the knee.
Yet another barrel, this time with the construction of a lift. Elevator there too, at the bottom, twisted and smeared. I would not want it to be ...
Here ends the rails.
After a cold underground labyrinth really happily walk around the village Polish expanses. It looks like Lair of earthworms to the surface.
Many passages in the tunnels were blown up, and a new life has grown on-site concrete dump.
The object did not build, suspended the construction in the 38th year.
