2. This is probably the weirdest type of Black Sea fort. (On a beach near the 23 August train station)

What is that structure coming out of the middle of the fort? All I can imagine is an observation post, to give a better view up and down the coast. But that could be crazy, too.

The chicks on the nudi beach are not afraid of cameras. If they are brave enough not to fear naked men, they cannot be afraid of a dressed man with a camera. :D

Jeff S, i don't know what that structure is. I wonder who designed such a strange-looking fort.

I have seen 2-3 bunkers between the blocks of flats above the "Trei papuci" beach. They have been turned into warehouses by the locals, and they are covered with graffiti.

When in Sf. Gheorghe (Danube Delta), couple of weeks ago, I’ve seen some strange concrete constructions close to the seashore, facing the sea. I had many discussions with my friends about whether they are pillboxes or not, but we haven’t reach a final conclusion. Unfortunately I have no picture with them, since I didn’t take my camera…

They looked like pillboxes (at least some of them), they were isolated but also built pretty far from the sea in my opinion (some hundred meters).

Any details, anybody?

I just came from the seaside and also i have somme material on this subject. Now i am at work and i can't post the pictures i've took. I was at Olimp. Heaving a walk whit my finance on the beach we went north of Olimp, and i've seen in the distance a concrete construction, just like in the picture Dragos took we passed somme familys of nudists and somme gays :lol:
finaly we riched it, about 1 km from Olimp, maby even less. I took somme pictures, i will post them as soon as i can.

And about that strange round shaped bunker, i've seen one too, from the train, at north of Costinesti, and also somme concrete tranches in that area, the train passed to fast, i took no picture and i did not had a good time to analyze any details.

Hi Daveh,

With regard to the Romania's purchase of Czech weaponry for its fortifications in late 1938:

Do you know if these were weapons that the Czechs had stripped from the forifications they had had to surrender to the Germans in the Sudetenland in early October?

Cheers,

Sid.

Hi Guys,

According to Volume II of the book "Anul 1940.....", the Romanians were given a time extension to dismantle the weapons from the Carol Line, because they were very difficult to remove from concrete emplacements. Does anyone know where these pieces were repositioned?

How complete was the Carol Line when it had to be abandoned?

Cheers,

Sid.

The sedimentation rate is tremendeous for that area. Probably the pillobxes you saw used to be on the seashore during the war. An example of what is going there: Chilia used to be on seashore during the Stephen the Great (about 500 years ago), and now it is in the middle of the delta. I think things changed since the seventies becaouse of the Iron Gate dam (stops the transportation of sediments).

Hello list,

For a while ago i went on a search for bunker remains around Constanta. Even near the luna parc i found one. I will post some photo's i made, is there somebody who can provide me with more info about these bunkers?

I plan to put al this locations in the GPS and finaly bring them on map. If someone feel to work together with me, i will be more than happy to coorperate.

On the moment i live in Holland but this will change in short time. My living place will be Constanta.

Keep up the good work...
