When you happen to find yourself in Riga and would like to feel really scared, don’t forget to visit Irbene.
Irbene is an abandoned town that used to be a military center with a developed infrastructure. The station of space surveillance Zvezdochka has not been there on the maps till 1993. The place was robbed and deprived of many things but visitors can still imagine what happened here 20 years ago.
The houses were occupied by officers and their families.
A post office was located at a similar building nearby.
The town used to have a school.
While walking inside the school, it is difficult to imagine than children were taught here 30 years ago.
These were barracks for soldiers.
Irbene had a medical post.
A kindergarten was available as well.
