Tropical Island Inside a Hangar

Sandy beach, palm trees and clear, blue water. But if you think that these vacationeers are lounging on a warm tropical island, you'd be wrong. They're inside a giant hangar in snowy Germany:

The 'resort' is actually located on the site of a former Soviet military air base in Krausnick, Germany. Tropical Islands is inside a hangar built originally to house airships designed to haul long-distance cargo. And despite it looking like temperatures are through the roof - outside the giant hangar it is actually snowing.

By the way, the hangar itself is not a leftover of the military base, but of a sadly failed attempt to create a new industry around constructing airships. You are looking at the giant graveyard of a failed public infrastructure investment
