Prora

Situated on Rugen island in the former East Germany, Prora is an iconic piece of Third Reich architecture. Built along the beachfront, this 2km long, 6 story high monolith is a haunting experiment in social engineering that was never completed.

  1. They build this house to make holidays in the IIIempire ….. ubsurde, it is the longest house in germany and no one knows what to do with it, it is too horrible !

    • Hi Juergen. I hear they sold some of it for private development? It is an interesting and important historical place. What to do with it is a complex issue.. Not sure i’d be comfortable having a holiday there (I know there is a youth hostel in part of the building).

    • Thanks Kara, crazy but because of the sheer size and the coastal trees the only way to capture it all is to take arial pics.

      And nice to see you popped over to the blog.
