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 @Gigi 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 for reading!

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.

You can download IrfanView here for free: https://www.irfanview.com/ 

To resize different or all pics in a folder, you have to select "File" >> "Batch Conversion". There you can adjust the size for resizing, change the name of the photos and choose the destination folder.
If you want to rename several photos at once, you have to name it at "Batch Rename Settings" >> "name pattern" for example with "pic###" (the ### with have the result pic001 - pic999).
