There are approximately 750,000 concrete bunkers in Albania, also called 'concrete mushrooms' for the way they look. The bunkers were commissioned by the former dictator of Albania, Enver Hoxha.
An ally of the Soviet Union and a strong believer in Western invasion, he built these bunkers to protect his country. Until today, they remain useless. Or almost useless. Some people use them as homes for animals and agricultural tools.The Presurfer
