The Magic of Sunrise in the Decaying Temple. An Abandoned Protestant Church [Poland]

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.

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.

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.

Before Heat Came. The Bagry Lake in Early Spring [Kraków, Poland]

A perfect example of the influence a time of the year may have on a place. The Bagry Lake is one of the liveliest and most crowded sites in Krakow (Poland) during warm summer days, however, it’s completely different before the hot season starts. Going there during a gloomy spring day, when the lakeside is still grey and empty, makes an impression of a journey to a different dimension. Entering it lets see another, spooky face of the site which reminds nothing of the joyful one seen during summertime.

While the Colours Are Still Bright. Exploring a Recently Abandoned Village House [Poland]

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 hadn’t 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.

A Creepy Doll Lives Here. An Abandoned House on the Snowy Hill [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.

The Dance of Sunlight. The Anna and Erazm Jerzmanowski Park [Kraków, Poland]

Time of the day is an element rarely taken into consideration when going to visit some place and is never treated as a part of it. However, it’s also the one which has so strong impact on the site, that can turn it into a fairytale scenery. Photos below show the Anna and Erazm Jerzmanowski Park in Kraków (Poland) seen in an early October morning.

Cats in the Window. An Old House near the Rails [Kraków, Poland]

What can make you stop by some place while following a backroad? Sometimes it’s just a peaceful nature corner, a rail track crossing it, and an old house with a couple of cats sitting in its decaying window.
