Abandoned since 2001 this airport had been operating under Olympic Airlines in Greece. Loads of collapsed and empty rooms, no aircrafts left but some relics of the main halls in decay made it a great spot to visit!
This abandoned building complex near the Saburtalo district in Tbilisi used to be the city’s hippodrome. Recently, it has been occupied by Goran, a gypsy nomad, and Tchini, his female camel. Future plans want the place to be transformed to the Alternative Cultural Centre of Tbilisi (ACCT), a melting pot of culture and arts. The place has already attracted many activists, travelers and artists from Caucasus and Europe and its future development plans are promising!
Val Benoit is a campus built by the University of Liege between 1930 and 1965 in order to host the institutes of Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Mechanics and Mathematics. The most impressive part of this vast site has been the Chemistry Laboratories. Pretty much wrecked but if one has enough time to wander around for a day, there are some great findings in there!
Fort de la Chartreuse was built between 1817 and 1823 to defend the city of Liege. Has been abandoned since the fortification by the military in 1891. The following years Germans used it as a prison between 1914 and 1918 and Americans as a military hospital between 1944 to 1945. The Belgian army left the site in 1988. Even if in complete decay it can still remind of its historical past!
No easy entry here but this small theatre definitely worth a visit. Its red leather seats are spread all around the place making great compositions with the black and white wall tapestries. The well-preserved stage and the beautiful glass roof near the marble stairs remind of its glorious past!
The most impressive part of this spot is the main hall with the big window and the colorful mosaic walls which, in combination with the stairways, make some great compositions! The swimming pool itself gave some good perspectives even if vandalized with graffiti.
One more cooling tower during our tour the same day! No matter how similar it might look like to the last one I shared, the big hole in the middle of it adds a very mysterious and unique element to it. Grey and green are the mail colors here. An amazing symmetry of tall, wide lines and homocentric perspectives make this peculiar site almost magic!
A massive construction with beautiful perspectives, depth of field and lines. The wooden patterns on the floor make a great contrast to the concrete covering the rest of the tower. The small house in the middle adds extra mystery and interest to the spot, making it a really unique location. Undoubtedly one of my favorite industrial beauties so far!
