A Tropical Island That Lives Inside a Former Military Base in Germany

Germany is by no means the place for a tropical paradise, but there this tropical “island” lives, surrounded by fields of snow in winter. The sandy beeches, the palm trees, and the warmth in this place that hosts canaries and flamingos totally belie the fact that this was once a giant hangar in a Russian military base in Krausnick, Germany.

The base now stands abandoned and has been converted into an artificial tropical island by some enterprising souls. As might be guessed for such an enterprise, the resort receives about 6000 visitors daily, who can spend their time comfortably in this giant hangar that spans 360 meters of length, 210 meters width and a height of 107 meters.
