Luxury resort comes complete with sandy beaches, palm trees and clear blue water…all inside enormous hangar surrounded by snow.

It looks like a luxurious sun-kissed resort.  Vacationers are seen relaxing in swimsuits.  Even a flamingo is spotted. 
But not everything is as it seems.
This resort is actually located on the site of a former Soviet military air base in Krausnick, Germany. 
The resort is called 'Tropical Islands.'  The hangar was originally built to house airships designed to haul long-distance cargo.  And outside the hangar, it's snowing.
The resort now has a beach, a lagoon, water slide and adventure park.  There are numerous restaurants, evening shows and a sauna.
The resort has a maximum capacity of 6000 visitors a day.  In its first year, the resort attracted nearly 1 million visitors.
