Hello everyone! :-D

Some months ago I went on a trip to Serbia, and thanks to a member of this forum who gave me advice on some locations I was able to do some good urbex in the meantime!

Here is my report!

 

(I tried my best searching for info on this place on Serbian websites with the help of Google translate, I hope this is accurate! :) )

This place is an abandoned luxury hotel in the Sumadija district, Serbia.
The palace is very old: it was built between 1868 and 1872 by the prince Mihail Obrenovic, basing on architect Koste Shreplovic’s design.

 

Originally built to be the Serbian National Assembly palace, it became the residence for the Obrenovic dynasty when the Serbian capital was moved from Kragujevac to Beograd.

 

In 1903 a coup took place in Beograd: members of the Obrenovic family were either exiled or killed. But in the following years a railroad was built from the city to Beograd, so the palace became an hotel where all of those who travelled daily from the capital would stay.

 

In 1964 the hotel was sold to a Serbian company, which bankrupted in the early 2000s.
In October of 2005 it became property of the government, which tried to sell it but without success. Nowadays it still lays abandoned.

The most amazing thing of this palace is the dancing hall: it's just too beautiful!

One thing I have to point out is that, even if it has been abandoned since 2005, the building has very little traces of vandalism and it still is in a very good shape. This is exactly the opposite of what happens in Italy.

Hope you liked my report guys! I'll see you in the next exploration! :wink:

That's a grand looking building :) Thanks for sharing. I've moved it into the 'short reports' section as there's only 5 pics :thumb

      When I first saw pictures of this Hotel I fell in love with its architecture. I absolutely love the connection of fairfaced concrete and wood. Therefore I definately had to visit it although before decay had a chance to begin. Unfortunately vandalism comes faster than decay. Despite the bad light conditions and suddenly appearing "visitors" and a barking dog  that required a sudden breakup I am quite happy about my visit.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!
       
      Here are the best photos we managed to get, thanks for looking.
