Campina Youth House

 

 

Haven't seen this one posted anywhere so I decided to chuck a quick report up on it. I would say this particular location could be described as disused rather than abandoned, as it looked like there was redevelopment work going on when we arrived. Hence why it is so nice and pristine. Anyway, onto a little bit of history I found..

 

History


The Youth House was orginally built as a leisure centre in Campina. A city situated roughly around the South East of Romania. It was constructed by local authorites in order to create a space for young people to participate in a range of sporting activities such as: aerobics, matrial arts and boxing. It was also established in order to promote culture and education and the house provided various facilities for the arts. The Youth House hosted a large auditorium to  showcase fairs, exhibitions, conventions, concerts and festivals. 

 

 

Visit


Visited with @darbians and Gina on a long weekend trip to Romania. We were driving past and saw what we orginally thought was a hotel and decided to check it out. Finding this place was defintely an unsuspected susprise and I'm very glad we decided to pull over. I really enjoyed photographing this one and I espiecally liked the mosiacs which reminded me of the ones at Buzludzha I had seen the previous year. I hope you enjoy my report!

When you find a window open on the top floor, gotta get a few photos from the roof :15_yum:

Thanks :)

Loving that! What a cool building :) By the way I've noticed your pics take a while to load, they will load much quicker if you resize them usually. I resize mine to under 2MB in lightroom before I export them. They don't seem to lose any quality, it just makes the file much smaller and easier to upload

Thank you! Yeah I should really resize them. I use photoshop to edit my photos but I might start using lightroom just for that!

There are a lot of programms that allow you to resize different or all pics of a folder, for example with IrfanView. :)  So you don't have to do it with each photo.

      this house always gave me the creeps as i drove by..then i noticed it was abadoned...I asked around and found out A Mrs Coffee live there..known as the town meanie..she had a hard life..her only son was killed in a car accident..her husband committed sucide..she had a daughter but noone knew anything about her...

      The basement held the sad reminders..a buys and girls bike for children long gone...

      the old lady had started hoarding...



      the house was unlivable who knows how she got around


      books were everywhere

      several rooms were so pack all i could do was poke my camera in the door

      that painting came home with me..


      this was the master bedroom..it was impassable


      i think the old lady slept in the bathtub



      now to the really creepy room...judging by the art it looks like late 60s early 70's

      wow weaird as hell..seems the daught noone knew about left as a young child or died with the brother in the same accident...because her bed room is largly unchanged since the 1970s
       
       





       

      A very strange room



      the kitchen was the only toom in the hoiuse that seemed normal

      it was once a nice house..

      i watched as workers picked over the house..i saw them smiling with arm fulls of stuff they decided to keep...i went in a few more times to find it almost completely stripped...i found dolls in unopened boxes..it was near chirstmas time so i took them and out them in the donation boxes for kids..before the other scavangers could grab them..they tore the house down..and quickly built another who sold quickly a new familt now lives on this spot....
       
      I caught several voices thought my walkthough gost of this haunted doll house...makes me wonder if the new house is haunted too...

      To discover such a time capsule always gives you a lot of pleasure. Whereby you can not speak of small here, because in this beautiful place there were many motifs over several floors.
      Starting with a huge cellar that was filled to the ceiling with unused materials, over several floors that were used for the production of clothing
      to an attic that was converted into a warehouse disused for sewing machines.
       
      However, the long history of the company is relatively fast to tell. A brave entrepreneur founded a small factory in the mid-19th century whose productivity could be increased very quickly.
      When the GDR emerged, the company was expropriated to disappear after the turnaround because they had missed the ravages of time.
       
      Meanwhile, you can not enjoy this time capsule so much, because after the discovery of the object, it was not long before much was destroyed and stolen,
      which ultimately led to the city secured the building and walled the entrances.

      And old 18 century house with had a bank function.The building is stripped of all furniture an will probably be renovated in some future.
      Needed to be a little bit inventive to gain access to this one. But later I was all alone, with the only sound coming from the people in front of the building.

      Made by a bunch of Melbourne Cave Clan members and used by even more Melbourne Cave Clan members.
      It was so much fun. Definitely worth doing on a waterway near you
      It's a bit epic, but maybe someone out there will enjoy a look.
