For anyone who has intention to go an a trip i strongly advise:

1.Do not go alone! I almost fell into a shaft on those fields. So if something happens someone should
call 112.

2. go equiped! Flashlight,binoculars, boots, shovel(ro military type is perfect) as you can cut grass and bushes, and it's also good weapon since there are lot's of dogs. At least 5 location i could not enter becouse of dogs. Even if it's hot i sugest to go with boots, i had sandals so i had to cross to a field wich was worked by tractors. Terrible.

3. good vechycle, 4x4 prefered.

4.Camera with memory empty! :) i went with my small camera saying that i will make 5-10 pictures. And when i reched a position i search with binoculars and found other 2-3 positions...and so on.

Anyway, i hope you enjoy my pics!

From the road Dej to Baia Mare (E58) at Galgau as you turn right towards Targu Lapus on DJ 109F road; going from Poiana Blenchii to Baba on the left hand side of the road there's a small pillbox, just before the entrance to Chelie Babei gorge.

Any idea when it was built and why there?
Was this part of a coherent plan to protect the Lapus depression?

Which direction is it facing? That may give a clue of who built it.

It is positioned south of the Cheile Babei gorge (which marks the entrance into the Lapus depression) and the gun opening is facing south

this is brilliant work! Have you guys considered posting on Site O, a great international fortifications/bunker research group!? The have no Romanian page yet!


https://sites.google.com/site/siteointernational/Home


Also; this is a good read on bunkers (mostly the Atlantic Wall, but the designs were amazingly standardized!)

http://www.amazon.com/dp/1568980159/ref=rdr_ext_tmb

and what seems to be the "Bible" of axix bunkers

http://www.amazon.com/Fortress-Third-Reich...ess+third+reich

my winter reading :(

(can bring these books with me on next trip, if any interest, and can't find them easily)


cheers

Yep, that's my blog.
Hope I'll manage to publish the 4th (and the final) article dedicated to Tirpitz battery, including the virtual reconstruction of the unit. The English version lacks a few articles that I considered "local interest only".

Cheers!
