The Beauty of the Cracked Walls and Dusty Corners. Behind the Doors of the Old Abandoned Church [Czech Republic]

Six kilometres on foot made crossing the forest and middle of nowhere as most of the buses skirt a small village in the Czech Republic where the destination of the trip was situated. Nevertheless after reaching the final point the long way definitely paid off, no matter how time consuming it was. The reason of this journey was an old abandoned church located at the end of the dorp and its beautiful decaying interior.

The years of the abandonment of this temple could be found out after counting the number of cracks on its walls. It’s already been a long time since the last regular mass was held there, so as a result the interior of the church is covered with a thick layer of dust. All that taken together plus lots of cobwebs and some strongly bitten by decay details create an unforgettable atmosphere which is worth stopping by for a while and taking a few shots. Below are some of them.

For the beginning let’s have a look on the altar—taking into consideration how long the church is abandoned not sure if it still remembers the presence of a priest.
