-in the same place we take everything to the car, make it easier and we see each other at 16:! 5 -we will see you here -ok let’s go – good luck we reach the buildings of the fort built after the modernization of the fort in the 1960s modern concrete buildings -these buildings served the army which was stationed here to 1993? -1999 after army moving out, the area was taken over by private owners three caponiers and a dry moat were built around the fort which were created to defend against the invaders of the main Warsaw artery leading to Krakow, today’s Krakowska Avenue to pass through the fort and communication between the caponiers, such passages were dug you can still see the reinforcement, unfortunately we can not visit them because they are buried moment ago We showed you the transition between the hills they were used for communication for soldiers and also protected these soldiers, and at the same time facilitated the defense of this fort because they could move smoothly between caponiers without loss of life Are you wondering why there is a moat filled with water around the fort? it is not a medieval defense system there was a dry moat, which was flooded with water as a result of the failure of the drainage system probably there is still 2 caponiers, we could not be found one the remains of the third caponier that stretched to the Krakow avenue the road that led to Krakow and one of the main Warsaw districts, moreover, mentioning the caponiers we must remind you that this fort was on the plan of a pentagon and three caponiers were built the fort was built in 1883. and already in 1888 it was modernized added concrete reinforcements which were not originally available in 1900, the modernization of the fort was completed during which 2 shafts were replaced by one anti-slip protecting against infantry the concrete I’m sitting on is the remnant of one of the three caponiers which were also modernized, but in 1904 then old caponiers replaced new concrete ones, serving as an anti-climber defense very soon, because in 1909. it was ordered to leave this fort and destroy all the caponiers we are on one of them, and that’s how it looks The Polish Army was stationed here until 1999. these areas were later taken over by a private investor, the only remains of the fort are probably under water and also behind my back we did not get there, but we want to show you the remains of this fort the guys are still under water and we have a bonus for you together with Wargaming.net, the producer of the world of warships game, we have prepared a surprise for you World of Warships is a free online game that allows you to fight with ships from the period of the first and second world war if you want to start the adventure with the game World of Warships in the description of the movie there is a special link who, after creating an account, gives you: 200 doubloons, 7 days premium and ship Diana – Tier2 but let’s get back to the water half an hour is a lot for you, but we recorded it on a terrible run half an hour is not enough for us too we gave ourselves too little time we did not find the plane, but a lot of barrels and tires we have a great hobby yes we are 🙂 and here our expedition after the fort turns into end remember about the game world of Warships, but all the information you have in the description of this movie -Kuba I want to thank you very much – No problem , -we found a subloaded truck if you appreciate our work, subscribe, check fb and instagram And?
