I don't think they can leave it the way it is as it is positioned right smack in the middle of the highway. It's too big to move by crane (and that's what usually happens in Poland with smaller bunkers - they are lifted up by huge cranes and moved aside few hundred meters away). They may attempt to move it on rails or something like that.

Here is a satellite view of before:



and now:



As you can see it is in the path of the highway. Moving it on rails would look something like this:

Lobomirski palace in Warsaw being moved after WWII.

I can't believe it's possible to see it from so far away. Are you guys sure those are Romanian mountains?

Is that a CEE connection like you see at modern campsites?

There aren't any extra connections, AFAIK. I think it's just connected to a regular socket in the staircase.

This is a major concern about using electric cars in Estonia (or elsewhere)...it's very difficult to find a charging point if you live in an apartment. The Finns are lucky in that sense. They often have outdoor sockets in front of apartment buildings. They're meant for block heaters but can probably be used for charging EVs as well.

In fact it's a real cool matchup, Ajax vs Twente in the last game of the season, with Ajax on 70 points and Twente on 71. A draw gives Twente the title, Ajax need to win it. There was a similar situation in Sweden in 2009. IFK Gothenburg hosted AIK in the last game and needed to win it. IFK took the lead in the first half, but AIK scored twice in the second. The winner came from the team's captain who had come of the bench in this last game after 11 seasons with the club and hadn't won a trophy since 1999, his first year.

That game was claimed to be one of the biggest ever in Sweden. How does this one compare in the Netherlands?

It was considered to be pretty special and exciting actually. Though, I think 2007 was even more special. AZ on the last day was leading by 2, ajax following second and PSV third. Though things went really strangely, AZ lost from the number 17, ajax won 4 - 0 which wasn't enough because PSV had a better goal difference. They won 6 to something I think. Really weird that day, can't remember exactly how it went but it was something like that. AZ ended up third.
