Poland Ko?ció? w Alt Jäschwitz, Poland (visted Oct-2012) 2013

Recommended Posts

Ok, sometimes you pass a location that may not completely deserve a report on it's own, but well, since you're there, you decide to quickly take some snaps.

Located only a few hundred meters from "The Chapel" in a tiny village with only 400 people we found this place by accident.

A bit of history;

In 1744 a wooden church was build for the evangelic community of Alt Jäschwitz. For some reason, in 1842 the wooden church was replaced by a new concrete church and was converted into a Lutheran church. They finished building the new church in 1844.

In 1945, after the war, the church was abandoned simply because the Polish people that moved back into this area were catholic and didn't want to pray in a German church.

Nowadays it's in a state beyond repair, but some tiny details inside still give you the impression that it once must have been a nice place.

It's on the list of monuments in Poland, but it's unlikely it will ever get restored to it's former glory.

Below two pictures taken in 1917 & 1919, showing the church and it's former beauty;

Thanks guys!

Yeah, it's very unfortunate, all those evangelic churches in this region. There are a couple more around, some in better shape, others in worse conditions.. One thing they all have in common, it's highly unlikely they will ever get restored... :cry: Simply a money issue..

      The hospital was closed less than three years ago. The facility has functioned, among others orthopedics and traumatology, rheumatology, pulmonology and surgery. The total area of the facility is about 2.38 ha. As of today, little souvenirs remain in the middle. The only thing left was the lamps in the operating rooms and some glass equipment somewhere in the attic. Despite everything, the hospital has an amazing atmosphere ... until you want to walk the long corridors. The hospital is not haunted, it has no ghosts ... it is guarded ... motion detectors, cameras and a dog make the entrance into the wild border with a miracle. Thanks to this the building is in very good condition ....

      One of the objects located in the campsite. Why a house is bad. When I was inside, alone ... there was a squeaky door from everywhere and the cracking of the boards against each other. The blame for all this is borne by the wind and frost ... however, when you sit in such an object yourself, different thoughts come to mind. In fact, I was not alone ... my friend was outside ... but the distance between us (at a given moment and situation) was comparable to the width of the Vistula (in fact it was enough to just walk out the window). Great property, amazing atmosphere ... great rooms ....

      It is a civil defense hall in a large plant that remembers the times of the Polish People's Republic... it was rather ... because the plant liquidated the room In the event of an armed attack, it would protect the civilian population. The room is falling apart. The equipment is rotting. Nobody cares about it anymore.
       
      Fortunately, at the last moment I got a tip and I was able to visit and take pictures. Some of the pictures are directed, but only so I could show the entire contents of this room.

      Closed glassworks. The office building looks like they closed it yesterday. There is not even a trace of dust. The room in which there are samples of what they made there - amazing. Rows of glass lamps ... until you do not want to leave. I'm sorry that it's all waiting ... just for what. Fortunately, the object is well guarded ... probably because it looks like it looks.
