Long Description:
The Czechoslovak government built a system of border fortifications from 1935 to 1938 as a defensive countermeasure against the rising threat of Nazi Germany. Infantry blockhouses and military fortress are a legend in the territory of Czech Republic.

About the objects of permanent heavy fortification form a part of the area in Šatov.
They were built in 1935–1938 as a protection of state boarders, some of which were used by the state army in the post-war period as well.
The transition log cabin MJ-S3 "Zahrada" was made accessible and transformed into its appearance from 1980s, including the camouflage paint from this period. The cabin is equipped with the original armament and tools used here in 1960–1999 including two cannons vz. 44/59.
