From my first visit to Grodek, aka Klomino village in Northern Poland. This former Soviet Cold War military base for approximately 7 thousand people is a ghost town now. Evoking unforgettable feelings when you trully realizes that there's absolutely nobody else but you and forces you to think about the past and the future of mankind!
