FORMER NUCLEAR MISSILE BASE IN KARMĖLAVA

There is a former Soviet nuclear missile base located not far from Kaunas, near Karmėlava. Up to this day, there are the barracks, garages, rocket launch sites, hangars, command and control posts… In 1988 the missiles were removed from the base. Four years later, the Soviet army withdrew as well, as it had to leave Lithuania. Since then, the area of 200 hectares has been abandoned.
