Photographer's Note

This is a very interesting structure. It is located on the Gdynia coast in the district curiously called - I don't know why - 'Babie Doly' (in English: Women's Holes or Women's Pits). The building was raised durin WW2 by German Navy (Poland was occupied by Nazi Germany at that time) and served as a torpedo launcher. On the Gdansk Bay were located two more structures similar to this one, but not as big. They were used to do experiments on different types of torpedoes.

After the war it was left alone near the beach. Nowadays, it is a paradise for scuba divers who practice their passion there. It's impossible to reach it from the coast unless on a boat.

The picture was taken from a motorboat.

Hope you like it.
