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.
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.
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.
It’s 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Once fast and shiny vehicles, today rusty wrecks stuck between thick bushes. A cemetery of decaying cars in the Czech Republic contains plenty of decaying automobiles and their quantity in this relatively small place definitely takes the breath away. The photos below show some of the wrecks counting their last days on this a bit unusual graveyard.
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.
