Other Facanos complex, Hungary 2016

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I didn't write anything for a lot of time and now I have a lot of information for you:)

Today I want to tell about my journey to Hungary during which we visited a lot of cool places. One of these places is Facanos complex in Budapest.

The complex of buildings as known as Fasanos was built in 1850 in neoclassical style. The architect was Jozef Hild. The complex and territory were called so because of the big number of pheasants nearby. The first buildings were made for an order of one soup maker before 1850. In 1850 they desided to make the complex bigger, and Hild projected a summer hotel (Horthy villa now) and a restaurant (bigger building). During 19th century the complex widened to the whole resourt, baths and pavilions were built. In 1880 they built the maid house (first house that we saw). They had big plans for this resourt but economical situation was bad and they only reconstructed buldings in 1918. The Horthy-villa house was used like recreation rooms. Before WWT the complex was occupied with Royal Hungarian Army. In 1939 Hungary opened its borders for Polish refugees. Hungarian army put into the complex Polish officers. In 1944 Fasanos was used for gestapo but the headquarters were not there but in the neighbourhood. After the war Fasanos' owners were Ministery of internal affairs. They put there the college. From 60s there was a school for frontier guards. In these times the complex changed a lot, old parts were rebuilt and they became not so beautiful. In old look stayed only the maid's house. It was separeted from the main territory. There some poor people lived till 1984 when it was abandoned. The main complex was abandoned in 1990. It's unknown now who owns this territory. Many companies wanted to reconstruct Fasanos but the lack of money was the problem. In 2000 it was an attempt to reconstruct Horthy villa. During the reconstruction they found remains of old, first walls that meant that the look of the house was changed in these years a lot.

This is all, but I hope I won't be lazy to write cause I have a lot of places from Russia, Serbia and Hungary in my archives.

Thank you for watching!

This place looks great, some nice classic architecture there and a nice level of decay.

      This Airbase was the largest underground military base and airport in all of the former Yugoslavia. The property is located on the current border of Bosnia and Croatia. The complex was built in 1948 - It was codenamed  505. The construction was completed 20 years later. The purpose of the facility was to establish, integrate and coordinate the nationwide early warning network of the Socialist Federated Republic of Yugoslavia, similar to NORAD (North American Air Defense Command). There were semicircular concrete shields, spaced ten meters apart to reduce the impact of the attack on the object. The complex had an underground water source, power generators, crew quarters and other strategic military facilities. Aircraft was used in 1991 during the Yugoslav War. Yugoslav People's Army During the withdrawal, it destroyed the runway by detonating explosive charges. In order to prevent any further use of the complex, Serbian troops detonated 56 tons of explosives. During exploration, a possible meeting of the police, the border guards of Croatia and the army should be reconsidered. The tunnels are buried, due to the underground connection with Bosnia, which would constitute a "wild" border crossing.

      I recently found this huge abandoned hotel in a sorry overgrown state. So I thought I would wizz the flying camera around it. I didn't go inside unfortunately as the perimeter fence looked rather harsh, with lots of no entry signs. plus it was way to hot. 

      The Penang Mutiara Beach Resort in Jalan Teluk Bahang has been left totally abandoned since it shut its doors in 2006.

      The abandoned mining hospital, located in Hungary, dates back to the nineteenth century. A coal mining company in 1898 began construction of a small mining hospital, which began operations with the approval of the Minister of the Interior on December 17, 1900. The hospital. According to descriptions, it has been adapted for 50 beds. There was a surgical, internal and infectious department. The building was full of lighting, sewage and bathrooms. The facility was one of the most modern hospitals at the time. The care was extended to include the epidemic (1909) and the pharmacy. In 1911 the number of residents increased to such an extent that the hospital was no longer able to meet this number. In 1911, a new hospital was started, which started operating in 1912. The necessary buildings were built in the courtyard of the hospital (morgue, a section of the hospital, a chapel, a house for doctors and nuns, a horse farm). The three-storey hospital had 129 beds for patients who were placed in 23 units. The mining company was responsible for maintaining the hospital, covering all personnel and all costs. Despite many years of change, the mining hospital developed with the development of mining. The hospital was relocated in 1998 to a new hospital complex. Hungarians are tightly attached to the old building and have been trying to save one of the oldest buildings in the city for several years. It was sold for approximately HUF 276 million ($ 1 million). I am planning a rehabilitation center, an oncological center and a nursing home.
