Domus Vista is a giant, built in 1968-1969, an impressive 102 meters tall, 30 floors and housing 470 apartments. It's the tallest residential building in Denmark, and the second tallest in Scandinavia, only beaten by The Turning Torso in Malmo.

In the early 1970s it housed a hotel fully equipped with living rooms, banquet facilities and a restaurant. It did however shut down.

The building itself is still in use, a small mall, a library and apartments.

The building was designed by Ole Hagen.

      Since 1961, a one-room grocery store has been operating in the countryside. In the other part of the building lived the shop owners. Later, the store belonged to other people, until 1992, when it left the Russian government, it was closed because it no longer met the requirements of the store. People were still living in the building, when they died, he was abandoned

      A couple of days ago I went up into a local forest to search for a tiny old school.
      There are no location details online so it kind of was like looking for a needle in a haystack so finding something was better than nothing at all

      This is inside of a factory that was once used for producing the somewhat famous Pandur-Tanks. 
      This area of the factory closed sometime in 2015/16, with first signs showing as early as 2010. At first the company decided to restructure by stopping production and only using the plant at this location for tank maintenance, service and repair. When this decision was finalized about 60% of employees were dismissed. Reasoning - there wasn't enough demand for new vehicles. In late 2016 the police was called to a so called "illegal rave" that was held in one of the former production halls. Tens of thousands of euros in equipment were left behind.
