The Abandoned Church ‘The Hidden Pearl’

Mar. 20th, 2017 | 05:53 pm
posted by: off_the_route in abandonedplaces

The beauty of decaying churches is a never ending story. So engaging one, that the will to read its next chapter can make you go a long way, no matter how many kilometres it counts. This time the mentioned story takes us to an ordinary village in the Czech Republic, hiding, in contrast, an abandoned church which is so spectacular, that even the ones in use can be jealous of its beauty.

Late summer holidays in Gozo. After a day of discoveries, we came here for the bay and the Calypso cave in the cliff. Because of landslide, the cave was closed but halfway from the beach, we discovered this big abandoned building facing the sea and decided to take a closer look at it.

Abandone chateau Lumiere, France

For a long time I have not written anything here) Therefore, today in the program a new reportage. Opening of the 2015 season. Perhaps this place is the dream I longed for. This time we did it. It was an abandoned family castle-manor-chateau of a Swiss tycoon, lost in the French wilderness. The place is very picturesque, beautiful and well preserved. Beautiful interiors, a beautiful hall with a luxurious light well and many other interesting things.

Abandoned American theme park in Japan West World Premonition Spaghetti Western

Mar. 11th, 2017 | 08:14 pm
location: Western Village Kinugawa Family Ranch, Japan
mood: cowboy culture
music: Hashisheen Bill Laswell
posted by: pigshitpoet in abandonedplaces

Western Village first opened its doors back in the early 1970s. Originally quite a modest affair known as Kinugawa Family Ranch, the Wild West theme park did well and gradually expanded, hence the name change. Yet despite such success, changing times resulted in changing fortunes, and in 2006 it was forced to close — meaning that the park now sits empty and forlorn by the side of the road. An odd, wholly unexpected sight in a relatively sparsely populated area a few hours north of Tokyo. Is this a premonition of American politics gone wild?

Is this the premonition of foreboding in western culture?

The Abandoned Saint Barbara's Chapel (Poland)

Mar. 6th, 2017 | 05:34 pm
posted by: off_the_route in abandonedplaces

I got to know about this chapel by accident while looking for the information about another abandoned site and that was definitely one of my luckiest accidental finds. There are no better words to describe that, as it does not happen too often to find a place like this. An elegant tower of the building turns it into a real pearl of the area where it is located, and its stone walls hide behind quite well preserved and mystically charming interior.

The Abandonded Saint Trinity Church (Belarus)

Feb. 27th, 2017 | 09:26 pm
posted by: off_the_route in abandonedplaces

Each kilometre of the road leading to a remote village was worth going in order to reach a stunning abandoned church which was shining in the ordinary rural area like a pearl in a colourless seashell. It was amazing and unbelievable at the same time to see the great temple in the neighbourhood of wooden village houses which remained charming despite being forgotten for years. An old gate in front of the building invited to enter it and have a closer look on the building.

Nara Dreamland: Abandoned Theme Park - Japan after Hiroshima



Nara Dreamland is an abandoned theme park in Nara, Japan. It closed its doors in 2006, due to falling visitor numbers.

Today, visitors need to climb over two barbed wire fences and hide from the security guard if they want to avoid a fine. It's fun!
