With sandy beaches, clear blue water and palm trees, this looks like a spectacular and luxurious sun-kissed resort.
Holidaymakers can be seen relaxing in swimming shorts and bikinis. Even the occasional flamingo can be spotted.
The ‘resort’ is actually located on the site of a former Soviet military air base in Krausnick, Germany. Incredibly, the hangar, which is 360 metres long, 210 metres wide and 107 metres high, is tall enough to enclose the Statue of Liberty.
It has a maximum capacity of 6,000 visitors a day and in its first year attracted 975,000 visitors.
As well as the thousands of visitors each day, approximately 500 people work at the site. Tropical Islands opened to members of the public in 2004.
