The Forbidden City: The Former Soviet Military Base At Wuensdorf

In this aerial view the officers' building and an auditorium stand at the former Soviet military base on January 26, 2017 in Wuensdorf, Germany. Wuensdorf, once called 'The Forbidden City,' was the biggest base for the Soviet armed forces in communist East Germany from 1945 until the last Soviet troops left in the early 1990s following the end of the Cold War and the reunification of Germany. While Soviet troops pulled out of eastern Europe after 1989, Russian troops have in recent years intervened in Ukraine. The NATO military alliance has strengthened its presence in the Baltic states in an effort to prevent similar Russian intervention there. (Footage by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
