When you enter Brno-Královo Pole train station in Brno (Czech Republic), at first sight there’s nothing unusual about about a display case in the middle of the waiting room. The winner of the contest for the train station reconstruction has been chosen, so a visualisation of the project would be appreciated as well. The madness starts when you come closer and see the amazingly bizarre model in the display case.
I had only a few hints about the approximate location of this place and no hope to find it. That’s why once I finally saw it on the street view of the map I decided in one second about to go on the trip on the next day. I had a reason to go there as soon as possible because the place is really extraordinary—a decorated cellar on the outskirts of the village somewhere in the Czech Republic inhabited by an outsider who has been living there for 8 years already.
Kuřim is an ordinary town in the Czech Republic hiding quite an extraordinary place—a fairytale garden full of decorations made by its owner. Luckily the holes of the net fence a big enough so that passersby can see magic creatures living there and other cute details. Below are some of them.
What is in common between old mannequins and ancient gods? Where is one of the most unusual tram stops? And where you can have a delicious lunch surrounded by plenty of retro cars? The answer to all these questions is simple—Veteran Muzeum Restaurant in Valašské Meziříčí (Czech Republic).
This time I have something for the fans of conspiracy theories 🙂 Did you know that the World Command Center is in the Czech Republic? Yes, Reptilians and Illuminati have their base in this abandoned house located in one big city. Otherwise how would you explain why there are so many satellite dishes—if not for collecting all your thoughts and sending them to a secret database? 😉
It doesn’t happen too often to see such an extraordinary place. A small cabin in the forest somewhere in the Czech Republic surrounded by plenty of weird sculptures sticks in mind for a long time. The unusual artworks have been created by an homeless outsider who has lived there since 20 years. The sculptures are made from various rubbish which combined together turned into something incredible—spectacular creatures that can easily compete with professional. Seeing them you can only admire the author’s creativity and feel sorry for the art galleries because of not storing these masterpieces.
When I entered this church situated in a small village somewhere in the Czech Republic a few little kittens ran away in all directions and hid in the corners of the temple. The presence of the fluffy ‘inhabitants’ made me doubt a bit if the site can be treated as abandoned, nevertheless seeing its decaying walls and the ceiling which is literally about to fall down it’s sure that its doors have been closed for a long time. 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.
What would you expect to find in the former firehouse? No matter what the answer is, you for sure surprised to see there so much art. Situated in a small village in the Czech Republic, this old building is definitely the most vivid one in the area. Its walls are covered with lots of paintings and unusual details which taken together turn this place into something surrealistic making it difficult to take eyes off.
I didn’t expect much from this place, but finally I ended up visiting it 3 times in one week. A decaying model of the village situated in the ‘real’ village in the Czech Republic was something that I had never seen before. Due to their small size, the houses would be suitable only for the Liliputians and it was enough to make a few steps in order to move from one side of the settlement to another. Nevertheless the buildings had so many details and taken all together created such an incredible place that I spent hours exploring it.
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.
