Mad Scientist's Lab, Poland (May 2015)

Recommended Posts

This place was part of a giant complex where they used to build trains for the national railroad company.

Most of the site was already demolished by the time we got here, but the lab itself was still worth the visit.

 

It's been abandoned since 2010, which is sort of surprising, if you look at the amount of decay, but well, I'm not complaining about that at all... ;)

 

Actually took 2 visits to get in. First attempt was on a thursday afternoon. Entered the site, walked to the particular building and said to my girl: "what's that noise?!"

Peeked inside the building and got instantly spotted by demolition workers... Took a run and returned a few days later in the weekend.

More luck that time. :)

 

Have to say, definitely worth it...

      Everything left as if the hotel's owners left it with the thought that they will come back in a moment. Or maybe the contrary, with the thought that they can not go back there anymore. We know that they did not come back. We do not know why. At the bottom, aprons, cups, the inscription "Welcome wedding guests". Upstairs furniture, appliances, personal items, books. Everything is abandoned, not packed, segregated, as in the planned move. No. Abandoned and destroyed. Scattered. Maybe by a vandal who accidentally got there and could not respect the place and things that belonged to someone. Or maybe by someone who did it with the deliberation that was looking for something.

      When I die, honey
      when I part with the sun
      and I will be a long rather sad thing
      will you take care of me then?
      you will embrace your arms
      and you'll fix what broke cruel fate ...
