Hours could be spent exploring each corner of the house and discovering the details that can let you take a quick glimpse on the life in this once so luxurious place.

The blueness and butterflies. These are two things that will sure stuck in mind for a along time after visiting the abandoned palace situated in some village in Serbia. No matter how pale and its walls are, a bit of imagination will let you see how vivid they were in the time of the greatness of this building.

The Magic of Sunrise. An Early Morning in the Abandoned Church [Serbia]

Have you ever visited one place twice during the same trip abroad? I always try to see as much as possible, so that wouldn’t be the most rational thing to do when the time is so limited.

Same as in case of many other abandoned sacral places, the decay turned this church into something gloomy and beautiful at the same time and three hours spent there taking photos passed as one moment.
