About Bouda Artillery Fort

The Bouda Artillery Fort was a part of the fortification defense system which had been built between 1935 and 1938. The Bouda is the smallest of total 5 completed Czechoslovak forts. The purpose of the forts was to prevent enemies from penetration to the Czechoslovak territory. Bouda Artillery Fort was a highly resistant building with 3.5 meters thick ceilings and walls. They were built from a special armored concrete and were capable to resist 420mm caliber and any air bombs. In the underground of the Bouda Artillery Fort, there is a system of corridors and halls, which should have been the base for 400 soldiers. The fort was annexed by the German troops in 1938 without any fight. The reason was the so-called Munich Agreement, under which the representatives of Great Britain, France, Germany and Italy agreed that Czechoslovakia had to give up its border land in favour of Germany and Poland. This agreement is a deterrent example of appeasement policy even today. It did not stop the Nazi aggression that shortly after led to the Second World War.
