A Nostalgic Corner. The Last Slivers of Elegance in the Decaying Villa [Italy]

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.

In the Kingdom of the God of the Sea. Breathtaking Decaying Baths [Romania]

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.

Early Morning Among Rusty Carriages. Decaying Trains near the Railway Station [Romania]

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.

Where a Devil Lives. An Abandoned Villa on the Hill [Czech Republic]

One of the trips spent exploring abandoned places in the Czech Republic brought me to an old decaying villa situated in the southern part of the country. At first sight the exterior of the building was more beautiful than its interior, which in other words means that there was no point to stay inside longer. However, there was one ‘hellish’ detail in the villa which had an impact on its atmosphere and made me spend there a bit more time.

Behind the Soft Curtain of Cobwebs. A Spectacular Decaying House [Poland]

Not each place is worth more than one visit, especially if it’s just a small abandoned village house. However, I visited this decaying cabin three times and being in the area wouldn’t miss an opportunity to go there again. So what makes this site so special? Still cosy rooms coloured with the shades of decay? Lots of furniture inside letting imagine the life there? Or soft curtains of cobwebs which seems to be trying to hide the gloomy interior from the brightness outside? Let’s stop torturing our curiosit and open the old wooden doors.

The Last Game. An Abandoned Casino on the Seaside [Romania]

It is difficult to explain what brought me to the most popular abandoned place in Romania, considering that the main purpose of the trip was exploring the least known part of Europe. The great abandoned casino on the seaside is definitely the most often visited by photographers and explorers site in the area and that let assume that there is already nothing undiscovered about that place. However, the elegant  significantly bitten by time construction of the building has some specific charm which can make you go hundreds of kilometres just to see this pearl of decay.

A Dry Fir and Shiny Baubles. The Christmas Spirit Imprisoned in the Decaying Church [Czech Republic]

It was just another abandoned church hiding in some village in the Czech Republic. The same as in case of other forgotten sacral places, there was a beauty flowing from its bitten by time walls and decaying interior. However, this decaying temple had also something more—a detail that made it stuck in mind for a long time after leaving the site.

Memento Mori. A Decaying Family Chapel [Moldova]

A decaying family chapel on the cemetery in one of the big cities in Moldova appeared to be much more impressive than it seemed to be at first sight. It was definitely worth to enter the old graveyard and follow the track leading to a significantly bitten by time building.

Hidden Behind the Vines. Inside a Decaying Village House [Poland]

Just another decaying village house situated somewhere in Poland. Not much was left inside apart from one messy but still fully furnished room. Despite being taken over by decay it was still quietly whispering about the times when the place was not bitten by time. However, quite a huge should be overcome in order to hear this story.

A Story of One Staircase. Exploring a Beautiful Decaying Villa [Czech Republic]

No matter how empty a building is and how bare its walls are, it still can have something that will force to stop there for a while. That is the best way to describe in a few words an abandoned villa hiding somewhere in the Czech Republic. The place is lack of almost everything inside, however, it still has a stunning staircase which can easily take the breath away.
