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.
After seeing village houses usually abandoned since dozens of years and furnished in an old fashioned way, a real surprise was to enter one with a few relatively modern details inside and taken over by decay quite recently. The almighty time had not managed to bit the interior of the building too much yet, so it was still possible to have a short glimpse on the life in this place when it was in use. That is, in a few words, a story of a decaying house found in a village in Southern Poland.
It was a dusky December afternoon. The sun was getting closer to the horizon painting everything with dark shades and that day’s trip to South-eastern Poland was going to the end. However, a small abandoned house on the hill near the road made us stop and have a look inside. Quite cosy at first sight and bright from the outside, mainly because of its white walls, it had a completely different, gloomy atmosphere behind its decaying doors.
What can make you stop by some place while following a backroad? Sometimes it is just a peaceful nature corner, a rail track crossing it, and an old house with a couple of cats sitting in its decaying window.
It was a completely accidental find on the way to a few quite famous abandoned places in the area. One more decaying house in Southern Poland obviously getting closer and closer to the ground.
Just another abandoned house patiently counting its last days. Once a cosy place to live, today this cabin is a bit unusual support for vines to get closer to the sky and at the same time one of the greenest sites in a small Polish village where it is situated.
One more decaying house, and one more gloomy story. A movie that is going to the end, its final scene, a tragic one, and predicting no ‘happy end’. That is, in a few words, a story of one of a plenty abandoned houses in Poland—no matter how sad, still intriguing to get to know it.
It was a small red brick cabin near the road crossing one village in Poland. A brightly green ivy covering on the roof, lack of the doors, as well as holes in the windows, let assume that decay had already moved there and invited to have a look on the painful agony of this once beautiful house. Thus, there was nothing else to do but cross a wild jungle surrounding the building and enter its decaying walls.
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 did not 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.
Sometimes, while passing through a random village, it happens to find a forgotten place that only locals know – like this decaying house in Wola Batorska, a village in southern Poland. The thing that makes it so impressive is old wooden architecture, so different from quite a lot of newer buildings around.
