Abandoned Tank

Children in Detelinara embraced a dangerous, thrilling playground amidst the remnants and chemicals of the Majevica Military Base, forging memories where innocence and recklessness intertwined under the silent watch of an abandoned tank.

In the heart of the Majevica Military Base, a forgotten relic of a bygone era stood tall and imposing—the abandoned tank. Next to the desolate airstrip, it became an intriguing playground for the curious minds of children from the nearby Detelinara neighborhood. They climbed atop the tank, feeling the weight of history beneath their feet.

But the empty tank held little allure for these adventurous souls. Instead, they found their excitement among the remnants of military surplus left scattered around the area. Abandoned chemicals, once used for water purification and other military functions, became their newfound toys. The children played with flaming water cleansing pills, stacking them into fiery piles, watching the mesmerizing dance of the smoke thickening the air.

Amidst the laughter and merriment, there lingered a silent awareness of the danger they were playing with. The acrid fumes rose to their noses, tickling their senses, and a part of them knew it was probably highly toxic. But that didn't stop them from experiencing the thrill of the moment. They embraced the essence of Detelinara, where life was colored with the juxtaposition of excitement and peril.

As they continued to frolic in the shadow of the abandoned tank, their memories would forever be etched with the nostalgia of a childhood steeped in history and danger. The abandoned tank remained an enduring symbol of their youth—a reminder of a time when flames burned brightly, and the smoke was so thick, it could be sliced with a knife. A time when innocence danced with recklessness, shaping them into the resilient souls of Detelinara.
