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.

Not a lot about this place, I believe the bowling part shut down in 2009 and then the crystal maze part shut down in 2010. Oakwood own this place and have no plans for it besides letting it rot away. Whoever is trying to look after this place is attempting to keep people out. Heard about this place from a different site, easy to find, such a pain in the arse to get into as there's a very tight gap to try and squeeze through..
Thee maze is bigger than first thought, only uploaded a few pictures of that.
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..
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.
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
Thanks for reading!
Information about this old brewery is rare. It must have been shut down in the late 1990's when the owner built a modern one in order to increase productivity.

I found this small house in the woods near Munich. Almost cleared it still got a certain charme as it hides a little local treasure - the mask of a Krampus.
The Krampus is a figure appearing in the Bavarian tradition of St. Nicholas. Whilst St. Nicholas rewards the brave kids on the 6th of December the Krampus dsiciplines the naughty ones. Each year on the 5th of December there are Krampus walks in the Bavarian cities. A group of Krampus dressed in fur and scary masks walk through the cities trying to frighten the kids. The kids on the other hand try to annoy the Krampus without getting disciplined.
These handcrafted wooden masks are often very old an therefore quite precious - at least in a traditional sense.
Typical scene from the Krampus walk.
But now back the main topic - Haus Krampus
