Skrunda-1, also known as Skrunda-2, is a ghost town and former Soviet radar station located 5 km (3 mi) to the north of Skrunda, in Raņķi parish, Latvia. It was the site of two Dnepr radar (NATO "Hen House") radar installations constructed in the 1960s. A Daryal radar was being built there before the collapse of the Soviet Union. Skrunda was strategically important to the Soviet Union as its radars covered Western Europe. The two barn-like radars were one of the most important Soviet early warning radar stations for listening to objects in space and for tracking possible incoming ICBMs.

All materials of value were removed from the site and carried back to Russia when the last Russian troops left in 1998; the 60 buildings that comprised the former complex and town, including apartment blocks, a school, barracks and an officers club, remained. The dilapidated buildings were still standing in 2010.

In 2015 the site was bought by Skrunda Municipality for €12,000. Around half the area has been handed over to the Latvian Army as a training ground. From February 2016 in response to increased interest at the site, the municipality began charging an entrance fee of 4 euros for individuals.

At least in 2016 it was allowed to enter the area with motorcycles as well. Be very careful as there are sharp objects in the ground and some roads are cut with ditches.
