Warsaw – Babice


In the northwest of Warsaw in a part called Babice next to an existing fort of the same name there was during the war a Transatlantic radio station (switchboard) which was used by the germans to establish contact with their submarines the Atlantic. The station was destroyed by the Germans in January 1945 when the soviet red army forced them to leave Warsaw.

Current status: Demolished (2023).

Location: 52°15' 51.63" N, 20°52' 41.86" E

Get there: Car.

My comment:

The ruins of the station remain about ten meters into the forest and are easy to find and there is also an information board at the ruins.
