Żukowice, a Semi-abandoned Village [Poland]

Żukowice is a small village in Lower Silesia (Poland). Once the village was quite big (in 1973 it had 1060 inhabitants, there was a school, library, cinema here) but it became almost abandoned until 1995, as a copper smelter had been built there and the environment became too polluted to live. Now the village has only a little bit more than 30 inhabitants and some abandoned buildings reminding about its good times.
