N-S 82 - Březinka
N-S Březinka is an infantry blockhouse of hard fortification, which formed a part of fortress of pre-war Czechoslovakia. This blockhouse was constructed in 1937. During mobilization in 1938, the building was fully armed (equipped).
However, the building was later deprived of all armour-plate elements but, when the war was over, it fell to ruins, nearly forgotten. Nevertheless, within 1988-2000, Military History Club of Náchod made a reconstruction and introduced it in original stage. The blockhouse is situated near Dobrošov artillery fortress.
This object was built in second stage of resistance. The building is placed in slope, so it is broken, as far as the height is concerned. The object was concreted consistently within 4th and 9th October 1937. It is equipped with drilled, 61 metres deep well. The cubature of iron-concrete reached 1365 cubic metres.
