The Abandoned Resort Hotel ‘G’ (Poland)

Nothing more paradoxical than reading on the Internet an attractive offer of a beautifully situated resort hotel when in fact the site is already abandoned.

An Abandoned Neo-Gothic Church (Poland)

Not each abandoned site sticks in the mind for so long as this decaying church. Seeing this temple on the photos was more than enough to decide to find it, even despite knowing nothing at all about the place. Thus there was no other way than start some research based on very general and not fully warranted assumptions. Luckily the mentioned guesses appeared to be sharp enough scissors to cut the way through the jungle of information and finally reach this church, situated in one Polish village.

Thus, there was nothing else to do but cross a wild jungle surrounding the building and enter its decaying walls.

The abandoned house ‘Pale Blueness’ (Subcarpathian Voivodeship, Poland)

The thing which made me cross kilometres of forests and fields of Subcarpathia (Poland) that time was a an abandoned Greek Catholic church in one remote village. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately?), when I came, I didn’t find a key holder at home, so I decided not to waste time and explore the area around. That decision, no matter how quickly made, turned to be a great idea. It was enough to go along the road crossing the village and look around a bit to see an old abandoned cabin hidden among trees.
