The destination described in the this article is a kind of place that is very rare to find and at the same time sticks in mind for a long time. An abandoned house full of weird and even a bit creepy artworks is something that can easily force you to go to a small town Italy where it is situated just in order to enjoy its magic.Continue reading “The Masterpiece of Weirdness.

Deep in the old and wild park in Poland is situated a decaying mausoleum which hides inside something that you sure wouldn’t like to find by accident late at night. A few metres high sculpture of the demon is greeting everyone who is curious to have a look inside the old building. Seeing this makes you wonder, how came that in the sacral place, where you would rather expect to see some sacral attributes, there’s the hellish creature instead?Continue reading “Right from the Hell.

An abandoned hotel which is in better condition than many of those where you have ever stayed. An interior design so luxurious that it reminds rather a palace than a place to stay for holiday. That is probably the best way to describe a breathtaking hotel decaying in the mountains in Austria.Continue reading “As If They Have Just Left. A Stunning Abandoned Hotel in the Mountains [Austria]”
The whole night spent in the train making a few hundred kilometres long trip through Poland. Then a change to the bus when the darkness was still covering the town and only those who are really forced to go somewhere can be met on the train station. The thing forcing me that time to go for such enormously long journey leaving home in even more time of the day (or rather night) was an abandoned Protestant church.Continue reading “The Magic of Sunrise in the Decaying Temple.

Not the greatest one, but definitely one of the most symbolic places seen last year on an early April trip. A massive gate without the wall lost on the meadow is something that will sure make you think about its purpose. What’s on the other side? Is it really so easy to enter it as it seems? How often does it happen to face one in everyday life? The allegories that the lonely gate creates can make you write a philosophical book heavier than the old ruin by itself, so let’s leave words and let the pictures talk.Continue reading “On the Other Side of the Gate. A Symbolic Ruin on the Meadow [Czech Republic]”
Just another abandoned villa in Italy still hiding a beauty that slowly fades away. Not that much has left inside, only a living room with impressive furniture. At first sight it would seem that there are sure some abandoned places that deserve more atention and that would be true. However, the incredible composition of luxury and decay that time made inside this villa is definitely worth stopping by for a while.
A huge space full of massive constructions covered with dust and filled with a specific smell of metal. Even if you’re not a big fan of decaying industrial sites, this abandoned foundry in the Czech Republic can easily steal a few hours of your life. No long descriptions this time—a plenty of metal constructions inside speaks louder than words.
It was a sunny September day in Italy and one more abandoned villa planned to visit. Having so many places in my plan I didn’t remember at all what made this one worth adding to the itineary. Crossing its dark and gloomy rooms, until the very last moment before reaching the last one on the floor, I didn’t expect to find anything more than just another decaying space. However, what I saw there was higher than any of my expectations. That’s why now, already some time after being back from the trip, I’m still happy to go there again—no matter that only virtually, watching the photos taken there. Reading further you can go for a quick walk through the abandoned villa and see one of the most beautiful things that can be found in such place.
One of the most famous and beautiful abandoned places in Romania. Proudly holding the name of the Roman god of the sea, these baths attract attention even of those who come to the resort town where the great building is situated because of the primary purpose of the area rather than to explore forgotten places. I didn’t spend too much time there, however, this one hour or so was enough to see passersby stopping by the magnificent walls and trying to see what is hidden inside.
A good thing about travelling by train is that before reaching the main destination you can find some railway objects to explore right near the station where you arrive. That is always a nice surprise, especially as you don’t plan to see anything there. An example of such unexpected find are decaying railway carriages that I saw near the train station in a town in southwestern Romania. I was also lucky to go there early in the morning when the area was covered with the colours of sunrise and street lights.
