Hi everybody!

Does anyone know what is now on 5-6 baterry? An ultramodern building based on the fortification walls. Is it a protocol building, particular or what?

Yes, I noticd those too a couple of days ago when I passed by.
As far as I know, it is still the property of the Ministry of Defence. I know it is sometimes used as a training ground for special forces.. maybe this has anything to do with that?
BTW: Despite the signs, the place did not appear to be guarded.

EDIT: Indeed, who can afford such a place? Nastase?

I just told Dragos 03 that I had a pacient today ,who grew in Otopeni.
All kids used to play in the bateries.
Batery 3-4 is indeed used sometimes as a training ground for SF.
He also told me that inside the batery there are about 7 floors under the ground.
Each about 2 m hight.Ther's a painted chapel,a cinema,and a tunnel conects all bateries and the Otopeni airfield.
He's a jurnalist and his grandfather was a Stalingrad veteran.
I asked him to make us a "guided tour" inside.
If some of you want to come,it will take place after the 5 th of July.

Good, but it would be more difficult to post the film on the forum. ;)

1. That is correct so far.
2. As far as I'm concerned it is not a matter of money here. May be someday, someone, will sell the Military Museum too.

I will like to go there too. I hope the water will finally dry...

???????????? I can't believe it, but I will realy like to see if that is true! And I hope it is!!!!!
And if it is true, and the batteries are (almost) identical, may be it's not the only one like that.

The idea of a filmed documentary about these forts is good indeed! The proper authorities, like the Ministry of Culture, should also hear about it.
If they do nothing, they (the forts) will soon disapear and lost forever.

I think it would be great to restore/preserve at least one of these forts (in the way Belgium did).

You're right , Andy ! We should preserve all of them, not only one. They are a page of our history, and we HAVE to take care of it!

This is a mapsource file for exporting to GPS systems (Garmin), providing the location of Bucharest forts, based on the information presented here so far. I am unable to guarantee the accuracy of the data, though.

How do you read the GDB files? My Photoshop doesn't recognize this file extension.

It appears you need to open it with MapSource, and it is useful only if you have a Garmin GPS device.
