  3. I think almost everyone knows it now. The monument on the 1441 m high mountain was opened in 1981 to the 1300 anniversary of the founding of the state of Bulgaria by the Communist Party (Socialist Workers Party). It's the largest ideologically motivated building in the country. After a 2.5 hour flight to Bucharest / Romania end of December 2013, I needed for the nearly 300 km drive (partly in fog and on icy mountain roads) another six hours, until I had finally arrived ... 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
  4. You do it right - give a shit of it, what others say. It's an interesting place with beautiful decay.
  5. Wonderful spiral staircase and architecture! Very nice shots!
  6. Hi from Germany ;)

    Hi Niclas, Willkommen bei OS !
  7. The castle was built in the 18th century. During World War II it was occupied by German troops and eventually used as mother-child home. After the war it was among other things used as an orphanage. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

  12. Wonderful building with the peeled paint.

  14. The property was built only in the 1920s, later it was used as an agricultural school. In parts destroyed by a fire and abandoned in the mid-80s. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
  15. Already built in the late 19th century. Also political prisoners were incarcerated here. Mid-20th century it was closed and used as a museum. Abandoned and in decay since the Romanian Revolution of 1989. Normally the prison is guarded and not easily unseen accessible, because the guardian lives directly on the site. But fortunately the guard was not at home and a hole in the wall gave access into the building... 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 (Not a fake, the rays are real.) 16 17 18 19 20 21 22
  16. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about the history of this former pressing plant for plastic parts. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27
  17. Originally a Commandery of Knights Templar from the 13th century, formerly with chapel. Inhabited until the 1970s. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
  18. The history of the castle from the 18th century dates back to the 12th century. Last it was used as a sanatorium. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 (The red light comes from a foil at the window.) 21 22 23
  19. This building from the early 20th century is well known, but inside with beautiful decay. So I've visited it two times. In war time used as a military hospital, and later as a spa hotel and recreation home. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17
  20. I discovered the castle from the 18th century, a few years ago on an aerial view on the internet. But somehow it got then forgotten again, so I visited it just more than a year later. Later, I talked with a woman from the village who knew to tell interesting details about the castle (which I do not publish, in order to not to disclose the location). Formerly the castle was inhabited by a baroness. In a small area has lived someone until 2007. The substance was really very dilapidated therefore large parts were no longer able to enter. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
  21. A disused slate mine. I was there in 2013 for 7 hours to explore and illumination. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
