Poland Poorly maintained graveyard Częstochowa | August 2017

Recommended Posts

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.

      History
      Maes Mynan care home was a two floor 33 bedroom care home on a site of 2.6 acres.
      The care home was for the elderly and it had its own day service and its own respite service for a short stay and emergency placements.
      The site was bought in 2013 by the healthcare company and has been left untouched since.
      The building itself we could not find much history about or anything about when the care home opened.
       
      Our Visit
      We decided to visit this place when we went out on a day trip to Engedi chapel (report will be up soon).
      On the way back we still had a lot of daylight left so we thought we would stop in and have a look at this site after seeing a report.
      The surrounding area was very overgrown and there was a long pathway leading up to the build.
      The site itself was in pretty good condition, well worth the visit if you have any free time.
      Be mindful if you do visit as just at the back of the site, there is a house that we assumed is occupied.

      This time I was actually in vacation with two friends of mine (they aren't explorers), but while we were organising all of our trip we decided to explore this abandoned and untouched printing works (hope that this is a proper name) that I had discovered a few weeks before. Those 2 guys were a couple of graphic designers so they enjoyed the visit even more.
       
      This plant used to create mostly the "Action Transfers", which are called "Trasferelli" in Italy: today they are produced mostly on commission and not for business.

      Imagine that you are preparing yourself for an exploration for like a month and you are dreaming about it for like a year. Then the day finally arrives and EVERYTHING that could stop us happen at the same time. Not only this was a rainy day, but this was the infamous day that a bridge in Italy collapsed (I think that all of you heard about it), so the viability was totally blocked and we had almost run out of fuel. In addition this bomb shelter was actually really close to the bridge itself so there were many policemen and soldiers in the area. But at the end the exploration went smoothly.
       
      About the site itself... This was an air raid shelter built during World War II, but it was reserved only to the workers of a near steel mill. It is 2 kilometers long and it could hold more or less 4500 people. I know that somewhere there are some big cages full of rocks which are designed to protect the bunker from the shock wave of the bombs, but we could't find them.
       
      Even if I posted almost all the photos (because I think that all of them are important), here you can find the complete album at higher res: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmgY363L
       
      "Move rapidly; don't think only about yourselves, other your comrades are still outside in danger."

       

       
      "Do not stop: move on."

       
      Left: "Don't smoke; air polluted by smoke causes illness to many of your comrades; give proof of politeness."
      Right: "Zone reserved to the P.A.A squads." (I don't know what "P.A.A" stands for)

       

       

       

       

       

       
      These stairs are completely covered in limestone.

      Hi all! Another from us, this time an abandoned Nightclub which has huge bank vaults in the 2 separate basements! Enjoy
       
      HISTORY: So the building itself was built around 1940 and was designed for the bank of England. The site itself is built with 2 separate basements with one of them being a gold vault containing, you got it, gold. In 1994 it became the 'The Walkabout' however after this didn't go to plan it was then brought out and became Wahoo (Which the signs are still up on the outside of it). It is due to be converted into student accommodation.
