Olbricht-Kaserne/Abandon Red Army Military Base, Leipzig, Germany
The grand entrance to the former Red Army base remains stunning -- although it is not celebrated. It remains overgrown with trees and graffiti covers the walls. Inside the walls, most of what is left of the base is ruins; structures are dilapidated & in desperate need of restoration. One can understand a lack of Germany enthusiasm for preserving such sites as these, yet for those of us who grew up on the opposite side of the Berlin Wall, there remains an intrigue.
