Bunkers in Albania near the Jugoslavian border

Bunkers in Albania near the Jugoslavian border


Albania (AL)
Albania, once the most paranoid country in the world, is full of cement domes. Enver Hoxha, the leader of the country from 1945 to 1985, littered the small country with 500,000 - 700,000 bunkers and fortifications.

Are you sure they are bunkers? There don't seem to be entry ways or vehicle tracks leading up to them, and scale wise, they are only a little wider than a roadway...

Albanian bunkers are quite small. See the link on my other bunker post.

I'm not saying they're not but I don't believe those are the bunkers that there are hundreds of thousands of in Albania.

Compare to the other map of bunkers that you submitted. The bunkers cast shadows and they're all distinct little domes.

What's in this map doesn't match the other bunkers at all.

*** And this map in particular I also wouldn't label (just my opinion) as a Land>Border since, even though the border is near, the "bunkers" do not make up part the border.
