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...

      I had spent some time at Krakow with a lovely girl who appeared to still live with her ex-boyfriend. We decided to go on urban exploration together, except right before we went for dinner she got a call from that particular ex-boyfriend that he would kill himself if she would not return home. So I ended up doing another exploration solo, which is why the lighting of the photos taken at night are of low quality. I am sorry for that. 
       
      For this location I had to go on a hill that looked over the city of Krakow. This hill is famous for youngsters to meet up and have a drink. While standing on the hill I overlooked some sort of forest / swamp area in which lights where coming from. These lights were shining onto one of the objects of the quarry. From then on I knew I was at the right location, but I had no idea how to access the path towards this quarry. Google told me I had to go down a path passing a graveyard, and then walk through the swamp like area straight towards the quarry. 
      I found the path, but once I was down the hill at the swamp I had no idea where to go anymore. After wandering for an hour I was about to give up, untill I shin my flashlight higher and straight upon one of the objects of the quarry. Finally I was there. 
       
      This place was by far the most terrifying due to the poor state of the construction. One of the elements of the quarry was built against the wall of a mountain, reaching up to 15m of height. The iron used for the building was crusty, and had many holes in it as well. After climbing upon this building every step felt like it could have been my last one. Fortunatly nothing broke, and I got back out of the swamp at one piece. 
       
      I went back the morning after, to make some better photos at daylight. 
       
      I hope you enjoy.

      I was on my solo roadtrip through Poland seeking for and abandonned railyard in Częstochowa. While searching I encountered a German person living in the area who showed me the road towards the railyard. While walking towards this place I discovered how odd Częstochowa can be: right in the middle of some appartment complexes there was a huge satellite dish visible. It was standing in a  sculpture garden behind a building that seemed like a dance club. The local walking along with me told me that the owner of the dish was loaded and bought the dish for a few million just in order to send club music right into space. Rumour has it he actually did recieve some vague contact in the form of some hz, but this is not confirmed. 
       
      Anyway, while arriving at the railyard I saw men working at the location. This 'abandonned' (Google) railyard was not abandonned at all! Great, there went my excitement. 
       
      Fortunatly the local knew about some jewish graveyard which he stated "you should definitly visit". And so I did. I went there and it was exactly as how I hoped it would be: open graves and the worse maintainence ever performed. It was like a movie. I knew I had to be back here by night. 
       
      So I had to pass time 'till midnight in Częstochowa. While cruising around the city I got chased by a Fiat Panda. While I thought some guys just wanted to fight me, it appeared they were undercover policemen chasing me on suspision of drugs. Two huge blokes coming out of that Fiat Panda (80% of traffic is faster than a Panda??) and my car got searched. First Dutchman without drugs, so I moved on. 
       
      Midnight: 
       
      I went back, the long road through industry and a bit of forresty roads. While I was walking the graveyard I knew my mind would play tricks on me. Flashing the light around I heared animals running away.. But then I heared some big footsteps coming from a dense bush. I tried everything to find out what it was except entering that bush, since I was alone and unweaponized. Up 'till now I do not know what it was. At a gasstation someone told me it might have been a bear, can anybody confirm the possibility of this? Otherwise I may need to go back just to end the frustration of the unknown. 
       
      I was hoping to upload the video related to this, but I can only upload photos. There are not so many of them but I hope you enjoy them. 
       
      PS I do have some more photos if interested, but it might mess up the length of this topic.
