Stretching more than four kilometers along the sandy beach of the Baltic sea on the German island of rügen is the largest hotel in the world — it has 10,000 rooms, which overlook the sea. However, now more than 70 years since its construction here untouched by tourists.

The hotel is called “Prora” — a huge building, built between 1936 to 1939 by the Nazis in the framework of Reich’s “Strength through joy”. The purpose of this hotel is to provide the leisure time of German workers and spread Nazi propaganda. The locals call the hotel “Colossus” because of its enormous size.
